WHY WE GIVE
We give because God has given us so much! In 1 Corinthians 16, Paul tells the Christians in Corinth to lay aside money on the first day of the week so that a financial gift could be taken and distributed among the poorer Christians in Jerusalem. We continue this act of collective giving each week to help expand the Kingdom of God in various ways here in Madison and throughout the world. Collectively, our funds can go further and have a greater impact on the world.
We also participate in some special givings throughout the year, as we have opportunity. These include disaster response, Ukraine, and other special efforts that are beyond our regular weekly budget. Below, you can find ways to give to these efforts as well as set up a recurring online weekly contribution.
Each week we offer take up a contribution, usually following the Lord’s Supper. The funds collected go towards furthering the Gospel in our community and across the world as well as building up the church locally. You can pick up an itemized budget with a full breakdown of our annual budget at the Welcome Center in the main lobby.
Throughout the year we have opportunities to give to ministries like disaster relief or other ministries that are outside our weekly contribution. You can find a list of those opportunities as well as the links to give directly to support those ministries by clicking the “Give Now” button below. Thank you for being a part of these opportunities!
