Everyday Generosity

Giving at Grace

We encourage all of those who are part of our congregation to give—not out of obligation but out of a spirit of worship in response to God’s gracious generosity. Your gifts allow God's work to be done in our midst, in our community, and in the world around us. Below you will find information about the many ways to give resources, time and talents to enable us to grow in partnership with God in mission.

Living Generously

From early on we learn to share and that’s a good thing. As we grow from reluctance, perhaps in sharing a toy with a playmate, to see the benefits of sharing, we grow in understanding of what it means to be part of something much greater than self. Ultimately, we discover giving is an act of community building and a way of multiplying abilities, that is, doing far more together than we can alone.

Through weekly offerings and other forms of giving —including acts of kindness, volunteer work, service projects that impact the lives of others, generosity flows and we, in the end, are fortunate to be engaged in ways that are far beyond one’s imagination.

Learning to share, to be generous, is life giving to those who receive.  But, more times than not, the one who gives finds greater joy in knowing she or he has made a difference.

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Matthew 6:21
