We do not want any contributions for the church.
This is not a typo. With God’s grace and blessing the school on the campus generates what we need to sustain the church. At one point our church was financially in distress. Over the last decade we have not only sustained its operation but have invested close to $200K rebuilding and repairing this House of God. This is a work of God and it has left us with an impression.
Really no donations? Yes. What we suggest is giving to a fund the members of the church have established. The resource is used to help families in need. People who are temporarily unemployed, dealing with a health crisis, or just stuck at the moment. The first followers of Jesus, the early church, was recognized for its generosity and for the fact that “they shared all things in common.” We hope to embrace a similar experience of generosity and service to our community.
Financial stewardship is based on the spiritual principles of the Old Testament and the teachings of Jesus. It is a way of thanking God for all of the gifts that He has given to us — cherishing and tending to them in a responsible and accountable manner, sharing them in justice and love with others, and returning them with increase to the Lord. As we give thanks for our blessings and have hope for all that is to come in the future, we offer the Lord our best We offer Him our lives, our talents, our treasures.
