“Now He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness.” – 2 Cor 9:10
At Grace church we believe that giving is part of our worship. All our members/regular attendees are encouraged to share in supporting the work of the church through regular & sacrificial giving.
The easiest is to make use of internet banking transfers. You could even set up a monthly debit in your account to make it easy to be faithful in your giving. Some people prefer to place a specially marked envelope in the offering which is fine to do as well.
*Please write ‘donation’ or ‘tithe’ in the description.
During our Sunday services we have two bags that go around during the offering. Our main offering is for the work of the local church to help cover our ‘day to day expenditures’ and staff salaries. We also have a special second offering which is different from week to week. Some of the second offerings are prescribed by Synod. Others are for project as decided by the local Church Council. At the moment church council has approved a monthly 2nd offering for Missions (as we support 16 missionaries in the field). We have a two monthly building fund offering and alternate deacon (mercy) fund offering.
For a list of what is upcoming in our second offerings please refer to the weekly e-newsletter.
