Here’s what we’ve noticed: In most areas of our lives, when something is
important, we give generously to it, but when it is really important, we give money automatically. Think about the things we prioritize: retirement,
savings, mortgages, bills, etc. Many of us have set these up to occur
automatically. It makes sense to use the
same type of system when it comes to giving to the Lord's Work.
Consider Paul’s message to the church in 1
“Now about the collection for the Lord’s
people: Do what I told the Galatian churches to do. On the first day of every week, each one of
you should set aside a sum of money in keeping with your income, saving it up,
so that when I come no collections will have to be made.”
Would you join with us and pray about setting up a portion of
your giving via automated/recurring giving? There are many benefits to both givers and
- You can give
generously even if you are sick or traveling.
- We can
better predict our budget for supporting ministries and the needs of our community.
- Even if you worship online only and can't gather in-person again just yet, we can still help people in need. (Often in severe
weather or during a crisis, the need in our community increases.)
Recurring giving is easy to set up and can be
done through our online system - click here. Or it can be set up through your bank's website. (Credit, debit, ACH, and bill pay are all
easy options for recurring giving.)
