Have you ever dropped a container fi lled with liquid and have it burst and go everywhere? Now, if you didn’t intend to drop it, it’s just a mess. But, if that was your plan ... well, that’s a little like what we are doing with Contagious Generosity.


Everywhere you look at CCC you’ll see Contagious Generosity. Why? Because our God is overwhelmingly generous and wants us to join Him in being generous!
