Every Sunday we ask people to prayerfully consider giving to the ministry of the church. We do this NOT because we want your money but because we see giving as a form of worship. It’s a way to declare that money is not our master, but that we are committed to following Jesus together as Lord of our lives.

Jesus once said, “No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money. (Matthew 6:24, NLT) and “Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.” (Matthew 6:21, NLT). Those are some pretty challenging words!

And yet, despite this, the last thing we’d want to do is to make a new person or someone who is exploring faith feel like we just want your money. We count it an incredible privilege to have the opportunity to journey with you. So honestly, please don’t feel any obligation to give.

For those of us who are committed Christ followers and consider The Gathering home though, giving is a way to contribute back some of what God has entrusted to us and to align our hearts and our wallets with the mission that God has entrusted to the church.  As a church, we encourage all committed Christ followers to follow the Biblical teaching of “tithing” – contributing 10% of our income to our local church.  Not out of a spirit of duty & obligation, but out of a place of joy and worship – praying that the Kingdom of God would grow in and through Christ’s church.

So let’s be a people who gives and loves generously! After all, hasn’t Christ been so generous with us?

“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.”
