“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.”
2 Corinthians 8:7
2 Corinthians 8:7
One way that we can participate in what God is doing is by giving generously, sacrificially, and joyfully. Our attitude about giving reflects what we believe about the Kingdom of God. We gladly sacrifice for the sake of the Kingdom because Jesus sacrificed for us, and all that we have is His. Gaylord E-Free is committed to sharing Jesus with those who don't know him, in our own city and around the world. If God enables you to give, your gift will be a direct investment in changing lives for eternity. Thank you for your generous partnership in the mission of Christ! We know it changes lives - both ours and those we reach. At Gaylord E-Free, taking action on your generosity is simple.
Tithing is our foundation of giving
Financial giving can be divided into two categories: tithes and offerings. The Bible teaches us that we worship the Lord with our tithe. When we give the first 10% of our income to the church, we put God first in our lives. Tithing is an act of worship that expresses our gratitude, faith, and love for others. When we are called to give over and above our tithe, we do so as offering.
When Christ changes a life dramatically, people take note. And when it happens to person after person in a community, a movement of God takes place. Giving an offering to Ingathering helps fuel growth for God's work to happen through new locations, new experiences, and new facilities. It is our tradition that we take a special one-time offering on Ingathering Sunday which goes toward a major project or ministry.
