GIVING is a worshipful response to God's goodness and provision in our lives. God's Son, Jesus Christ, freed us through His death and resurrection to truly live lives that honor and reflect God's grace. Because of this, our giving back to God is one of the most appropriate ways we can show our gratitude. The apostle Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 8:7 -
"But just as you excel in everything - in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in your love for us - see that you also excel in this grace of giving."
We give not because we have to, but because we get to; it is a privilege! There are many ways to give back to the LORD. Here are some of the ways:
TIME - There are only 24 hours in each day. How is God leading you to use your time? If you're looking for ways to give more of your time in serving the LORD, contact the church office and we will help you to see where you can start giving your time.
TALENTS - We believe God has gifted you in a unique and special way and because of that everyone is great at something! If you're part of Graham Emmanuel Baptist Church, we believe God has specifically given you abilities and talents to serve Him in a special place here in the local church. Therefore, we encourage you to contact the church office to find out how you can find a place to use the talents that the LORD has given you.
TREASURE - God also gives us tangible resources that we are to manage and steward. Let us never forget that God truly owns 100% of everything. It is all His to begin with! Therefore we should show our gratitude by giving back to Him and His work at Graham Emmanuel Baptist Church. If you are looking for ways to give financially, here are some ways:
- Offering each Sunday at church - Every Sunday we provide you the opportunity to give as an act of worship in our Celebraion services.
