Giving


The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.  Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.  And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.

We want to be  faithful stewards with what God has entrusted to us.  LifeBridge is introducing a new service to simplify living as generous believers. You can now give online via your computer or mobile device. This will do a couple things for us as individual disciples and as a church.


First it will provide the flexibility for our members to give how they want to, regardless of day or time. You'll be able to give your tithes and offerings in several different ways. We now have this page on our website where you can give. Part of the flexibility you will enjoy  is the payment method you choose to use. Of course, you can still give via a check, even through our online giving platform. You can also give with a debit card or credit card.


Second, it will help develop a habit of giving regularly. You will be able to set up recurring tithes and offerings. Many of us pay bills online. This is much the same, but it's not just paying a bill. It's putting our faith in God into action. Giving is truly a worship experience, and online giving can simplify that experience. Without giving, we miss out on an incredible way of becoming more like Christ.

 


He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness. You will be enriched in every way to be generous in every way, which through us will produce thanksgiving to God.
