Giving to CtK
In the New Testament, Paul reminds Corinthian Christians of the motivating principle for their generosity. He writes:
"For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich."
Jesus gave up all of his eternal wealth that we might share in his riches. Therefore, it is out of an experience and awareness of this endless gift that we give to others. In doing so we learn generosity and joyfulness. Understanding the riches we possess in Christ frees us from unhealthy concern for our possessions and motivates us to invest our resources in God's eternal kingdom. It is our practice of the church in accordance with God's word to offer a sacrificial portion of all of our resources—time, skills, possessions—as an act of faith and gratitude in response to God's grace.
We take a weekly offering at the close of our service each week. This is for those who are part of our community--we don't want people to feel like they are compelled to give--yet we recognize the call for us to honor God with our money as a community act.
