Giving

Biblical giving involves two different relationships - one with God and one with the local faith community. The mission of Christ Community is "Restoring Our Broken World". Faithful stewardship is a necessary ingredient in that process. Giving does not only apply to financial resources; it also includes giving our our time and talents for Christ's kingdom.

Ways to give

You can give on the weekend at services, by mail, or online. Online giving is safe and private. You can even create a profile to allow easy sign-in to make future gifts.

Why We Give

In every way I’ve shown you that by laboring like this, it is necessary to help the weak and to keep in mind the words of the Lord Jesus, for He said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ ” Acts 20:35

WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY ABOUT GIVING?

Long before tithing was a practice of the Israelite people, Cain and Able, the second generation of the human race, brought an offering to the Lord. The Lord blessed Able's offering, but rejected Cain's. Able brought "the firstborn of his flock," while Cain brought "some of the fruits of the soil" as an offering. God wants to be first. After all, everything that we have is already His.

"And all the title of the land, whether of the seed of the land or of the fruit of the tree, is the Lord's. It is holy to the Lord." -Leviticus 27:30
