For God loves a cheerful giver…
For Christians, making an offering is about more than giving money. We believe that we can make our whole lives an offering to God—our selves, our time, and our possessions. All that we have is a gift from God, and one of our greatest blessings is that we can pass that gift along to others.
We are always looking for volunteers to help with projects. If you’d like to volunteer your time or talents to something at the church, talk with the pastor. He’ll certainly be able to find something for you to do! If you have an idea—even better. See Pr. Daniel, and he’ll help you put your gifts and graces to service.
You can also pick a Time and Talents sheet at the church and share with us different ways that you can put your particular skills to use. Is there something you’ve always wanted to try but haven’t done yet? Let us know, and we’ll do what we can to make it happen!
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also…
Financial giving is an important part of Christian discipleship. It takes resources for our congregation to ministry, both at home and in the wider church. Financial gifts and offerings means we can better be faithful in our calling to live a fully integrated life as a community of believers.
At Living Word, we don’t pass a plate for offering, but instead you can deposit your offering in the offering box as you enter the sanctuary. This way worship stays directed at God and on God’s gifts to us as much as possible.
You can also talk to the treasurer about setting up your offering to be done electronically via Simply Giving.
