Providing for his church
God shows his love for us, not just by helping us to think positively, but by sending his only son to earth as a human, Jesus of Nazareth. During his earthly lifetime, Jesus healed the sick, fed the hungry and ate with sinners. We believe with a deep faith that shows itself in good works like those of Jesus, done with God’s love.
As you become a member of his church, God calls you to perform his work in the world. This requires our prayers, our presence, our hands, our hearts, and our gifts – including financial gifts. Jesus put it this way: Where your treasure is, there will be your heart also (Matthew 6:21).
The Biblical standard for financial giving is the tithe – which equals one tenth of one’s income (Leviticus 27:30). We believe that tithing should be the goal – not the requirement – of every Christian disciple.
More and more of us pay our bills electronically. Providence has set up a safe and completely secure means for you to contribute to the church through Electronic Funds Transfer to help make your regular giving easier. Contact the church office for a physical or emailed copy of the EFT form.
