Philosophy of Giving

At Grace, we believe that God has richly blessed us as individuals, and we acknowledge and accept our calling to be Christ for others through giving of our time, talents, and treasures. In this way we express appreciation for all that God has given us. Together, we challenge each other to be reflections of God’s graciousness and generosity to those around us. We do this with grace, for Grace, and for all those served by our faith community. It is in this giving that we grow in our relationship with God and God’s world.

To that end, the leadership of Grace Lutheran Church suggests that each household begin their giving at $40 per week, with everyone working toward a long-term goal of Biblically-based tithing (giving 10% of our income). This puts the focus on equal sacrifice rather than equal giving.

We ask that you give this prayerful consideration.
