In the Bible, Acts 20: 35, Paul tells us that Jesus said "It is better to give than it is to receive." In Corinthians 9: 6 - 7, the Lord tells us, "Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly, will reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously, will reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver."
There are many ways to give of yourself, including tithing through the church, volunteering your time to support mission efforts, volunteering to serve on a church committee, or helping another person or persons in a variety of ways. Take a look at our Outreach section to find ways that our congregation is giving to others and how you might want to participate. If you have any questions, please contact our Pastor, Reverend Dr. Cathy Northrup for ideas on ways to volunteer.
