“Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” (Luke 6:38)
Ways to Give
- Of course you can always give by cash or check via the Sunday offering or by mail. For offering envelopes, please contact Elayne at 330.315.5484.
- Some use automated withdrawal from a personal bank account (referred to as an ACH transaction). This can be arranged by contacting Jan Jacobson at 330.315.5483.
- If you would like to give beyond your regular offering in the form of securities, legacy giving, life insurance, retirement benefits, or stock contributions, please contact our Finance office at 330.315.5477.
- Giving is an act of worship: 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 (1 Corinthians 16:2), as well as a spiritual discipline: But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. (Matthew 6:3-4).
- All believers are to give in accordance to their means: For if the willingness is there, the gift is acceptable according to what one has, not according to what one does not have. (2 Corinthians 8:12)
- Believers should give of their own free will and with a good attitude: 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 Corinthians 9:7).
- Scripture is clear that we are to be careful with debt: Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law (Romans 13:8). The rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is slave to the lender (Proverbs 22:7). As you prayerfully consider giving, we trust you know your finances best.
