GROWING IN GIVING
We depend greatly on one another for our ministry at Servant of Christ. All that we have is a gift from God. We are called to be wise stewards of all that we have received: our time, talent and treasure.
At Servant of Christ we are encouraged to grow deeper in our stewardship of all that God has given by thinking in terms of abundance rather than scarcity. Beginning from a point of scarcity causes us to fear there will not be enough, thus closing us off from giving or receiving. But an attitude of abundance invites us to openly give and receive.
We encourage you to consider to offer a percentage of your income to the ministry of the gospel of Christ. We also encourage you to grow in giving as an act of faith and spiritual discipline. As we offer our time, talent and treasure with gratitude, we help to proclaim the good news of God in Christ to our community and beyond.
