Why give to support the work of God’s church? We give out of gratitude for all God has first given us. We give because we know that all we have truly belongs to God and that we are merely stewards of it. We give so that others will get to experience the music, study, fellowship, service, and worship that have shaped us. We give so that through the ministries of the church we will be formed more fully into people who make the world more loving, kind, and just. We give, not because we have to, but because we get to.
