Remember this - a farmer who plants only a few seeds will get a small crop. But the one who plants generously will get a generous crop. You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. “For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.” And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others. As the Scriptures say, “They share freely and give generously to the poor. Their good deeds will be remembered forever.” 2 Corinthians 9:6-9
God, calls us to be faithful with our finances, living responsibly and giving generously. His promise when we do is that He will fill our lives with spiritual blessings, give us treasure in Heaven, and provide for our present needs. Donations support the local ministries of Hope Church and missions around the world. If you're unable to make it on Sunday, or if it's just more convenient for you, set up giving online. You can make a one time donation, or set up a recurring gift. "Give as freely as you have received!"
- Jesus (Matthew 10:8 NLT)
BECOME A VOLUNTEER
Another way God calls us to give is by serving others. God gives each of us unique abilities so we can benefit, encourage, and meet the needs of others. To find our more about how you can serve others at Hope Church, please email our church office and ask about our volunteer opportunities.
"He makes the whole body fit together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love."
(Ephesians 4:16 NLT)
SHARE GOD'S LOVE
Giving to the church in response to God's love is only a small part of a generous life. The larger part of giving is sharing with others the love God has poured into our hearts. Look for ways in your everyday life to share God's love with those around you. Encourage others, be uncommonly kind, offer to pray with those who are struggling, value others as God does, forgive freely, love abundantly.
"This is my commandment: Love each other in the same way I have loved you." - Jesus (John 15:12 NLT)
