As the church began, generosity was greatly valued. In fact, the apostle Paul encouraged, “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” (1 Cor. 16:2). Christians were well-known for their generosity and even shared their possessions so no one went hungry (Acts 2:44-47). Giving was meant to be a joy, giving the Christ-follower an opportunity to help others. The apostle Paul also wrote, “Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver” (2 Cor. 9:7). At Christ Lutheran Church, we therefore believe giving is an opportunity to bless others with the gifts God has given to you as you invest in the mission of our church.
Your generous giving enables Christ Luthern Church to impact our community with the good news of God’s love. If you consider Christ Lutheran Church your church home, we would encourage you to give and join what God is doing through our church through your financial generosity.
