Based on Joel 2:12-13, this mini-movie will encourage your congregation to return to the Lord with reflection and repentance, during the season of Lent. Our Heavenly Father is merciful and compassionate. During Lent, we should come to the Lord in the same way Jesus did in the Garden, with fasting and weeping. During Lent, we remember His sacrifice and give back, because He gave all.
1 Thessalonians 5:18 commands us to give thanks in everything; for this is the will of God. It is easy to give thanks when life is running smooth. However, the command is not to give thanks only when things are easy. But, we are to give thanks in everything. We can celebrate thanksgiving in times of joy and in times of pain. We can celebrate thanksgiving at the mountain top and through the dark valley. Use this powerful mini-movie to grow your congregation’s understanding of Thanksgiving. God’s ways are higher than our ways. We may not always understand. But, we can choose to be thankful to our Heavenly Father in everything.
As Jesus spent 40 days in the desert praying and fasting, let us follow his lead during the season of Lent with self-denial, repentance, giving, and renewal. This video uses powerful images and music to remind your congregation of God’s love and sacrifice, which should encourage each of us to deny self and make God first place in our lives. Prepare your congregation for the celebration and sacrifice of Lent.
Money, tithing, and stewardship can be challenging topics to address with your congregation. However, this uplifting video makes it easy to share Biblical principles about giving, showing that God has a plan to bless us and others when we are faithful to follow His commands. God owns everything. When we tithe, we are simply giving back to God what is already His. When we begin to live out this truth, that’s when God works through our finances to glorify Himself. This video will make a great addition to your worship service when you are preaching on the topics of money, tithing, stewardship, or giving.
This mini-movie explores the reasons for giving, fasting, and praying during the season of Lent. It can be used to explain to your congregation and visitors the reasons for observing these customs leading up to Easter. Great for Ash Wednesday or any service during the Lent season.
Cain and Abel brought offerings to the Lord but only Abel’s was accepted. Why did God reject Cain’s offering? This mini-movie looks at the principal of the firstfruit and why it’s central to our giving. This video could be used with a message on tithing (e.g. - Putting God first in your finances) but the concept of firstfruits extends to every aspect of our lives. God doesn’t accept leftovers; God must be first.

Money. It’s a touchy subject…especially in church. Add humor to your service and take the awkwardness out of the subject of tithing with this hilarious new video from The Skit Guys!
