Worship Guide - Offerings
When will they take the offering? How will it be collected? How much am I expected to give? Do they want visitors to contribute? — These are all common concerns of visitors. The Bible teaches that our offerings to God ought to reflect our belief that all we have is his gift to us. With our offerings, we are simply saying thank you to God.
Like most Christians, our members bring offerings to God through their church. Since they are a gift of love for God, no one dictates what each person is to give. We pass an offering plate during the service, (shortly after the sermon) so that our worship may include bringing gifts to God. Our members make use of offering envelopes to keep our gifts a private matter.
A child may bring quarters and dimes that his parents provide. Someone older may write out a check. Both are remembering Jesus and giving their gift out of love for what he has done for us. You may wish at first to learn more about our ministry before bringing your offerings to God through our church.
