Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. (2 Cor. 9:6–7)
Our understanding of generosity must begin with the Lord, who gave the greatest gift imaginable by sending His son, Jesus Christ, to redeem His people from their sins (John 3:16; Eph.2:8). Having received His grace, we are blessed in turn to give of our time, talents, and treasure in thanksgiving to God (2 Cor. 9:12) and for the glory of God (2 Cor. 9:13).
At Christ Church, we seek to be wise stewards of the resources that the Lord has provided to us through the generosity of God's people. Roughly 15% of our annual budget goes to mission causes outside our congregation. We also seek to adequately fund each of our ministries, so that our congregation is equipped to do the work of the Lord.
