Generosity comes when we understand that we are hands and feet of Jesus and we are stewards of His grace.
But who am I, and who are my people, that we should be able to give as generously as this?
Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand.”
~1 Chronicles 29:14
God provides for the ministry of our church through your tithes and offerings and your gifts are honored with faithful stewardship, ethical business practices, and accountability to our lead team. It’s more than keeping the lights on and the gears turning; it’s about personal worship to God and handing Him back what He already own.
GIVING OF OUR LIVING is one of the purest forms of worship. It also has a wonderful way of helping to reset our priorities and reminding ourselves who is on the throne of our hearts. Giving supports the lives changing through the transformative power of the Gospel in our region and beyond.
God’s Word calls us to obediently give of what He gives us, to do His kingdom work. Offerings are vital to the health of Our Church and provide for all the areas of ministry and outreach. OUR GOAL FOR EMMANUEL IS 100% PARTICIPATION in giving to the ministry of God.
That might mean being lavishly generous or simply sacrificial… like sacrificing a fast food meal once a week and giving that cost to the Lord through His church. What you give should be decided between you and God, we sincerely ask that you give in some way from a worshipful heart.
2 Corinthians 9:7-8 “Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart what to give, not reluctantly of under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.”
