“Collection of the saints”(Owo Igba)
Is an act of worship and a practice of the early biblical church
1 Corinthians 16 : 1 to 2
Now concerning the collection for the saints as I have given order to the churches of Galatia, even so do ye.
Upon the first day of the week let everyone of lay by him in store, as God prospered him that there be no gatherings when I come.
Collections were gathered and raised for missions, support of the church and its members and for other financial necessities and duties in the church
Typically in the church today, various collections are collected and given charitably and cheerfully to aid the church and its members.
It is indeed a blessing to contribute to a collection for all the saints in the church, in the Lord’s service, in need of help and support.
