At this special time of year, many of us seek ways to help others. Giving to your church will impact lives and support the cause of Christ as we seek to help people find and follow him.
We will provide a record of your giving for tax purposes, but to be included in your 2014 giving statement, year-end contributions must be included in the offering no later than Sunday, Dec. 28 or given online or mailed to the church no later than Dec. 31 (i.e. postmarked).
You may want to consider donating appreciated assets like stocks for the tax benefits. Every dollar given is used prayerfully. Thank you for your generous giving to the cause of Christ. If you have any questions, contact Shane Griggs at email@example.com or 972.547.7089.
The online recurring contributions function is a great way to practice faithful giving. Many people who use this capability set their giving to expire at year-end. If that is the case for you, we want to offer this friendly reminder to set up a new recurring contribution for 2015. Thanks for your ongoing support of the ministries of Christ Fellowship.
At Christ Fellowship, we believe giving to Christ’s church is an act of worship, and that both our attitude toward giving and practice of giving indicates our level of spiritual maturity and commitment to Christ’s mission (Matthew 6:19-21). Faithful giving also makes us more generous overall, freeing us from the bonds of materialism, allowing us to better show Christ’s love to a watching world, and providing a platform for further spiritual growth. Giving is important to God because it is a matter of the heart; therefore, it’s important to us.
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. (Matt. 6:21)
Online giving is provided for your convenience and as a way to facilitate faithful stewardship of the financial resources God has blessed you with. Two things to note:
This fund provides for the needs of our Christ Fellowship families.
The answer can be summarized in one sentence and three principles:
Give generously since God has generously given to you, and because you know God rewards generosity.
We are to give generously with ‘3P’ giving!
