The Reason We Give
“Worship…demands knowing God in a personal way. When we worship God, it is because of who He is. True worship can only be done through intimacy”
(Bishop Curt Courtenay, Balancing the Scales of Life, p. 98).
Giving is a sacred act of worship that is an expression of what we value. What we value is reflected through our choices about where we spend our time and resources. How we relate to others and how we spend our time and money are all expressions of worship unto God.
As believers, we desire to make a difference. One way of bringing purpose to our lives is by helping and supporting activities that encourage and have impact on the lives of others. Through the sacred act of giving, we are allowing God to work through us to make a difference in our community and in the world.
We are grateful that you have chosen to financially support the ministry Emmanuel Church of God. Your generosity will help us continue our ministry of spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ and serving our community.
“Each one must give as he has decided in his heart - not reluctantly or out of compulsion, since God loves a cheerful giver.” - 2 Corinthians 9:7 (CSB)
