According to scripture it is our duty to give and, in the process, we’ll bless others plus make an impact for eternity.  Watch this video from our Pastor as he shares important principles regarding giving and how to be found faithful with our finances.  

 

 

Why do we give?

You are giving to GOD, not just a church. And when you do, you are fulfilling God’s mission for your life and the church. Note how it carries out the biblical mission of Thomas Road…

“Change our world by developing Christ followers who love God and people”

When you give, you are…

  • following Christ, for He gave everything for us.
  • changing our world, because you are providing the resources for us to do kingdom work.
  • loving God, because it shows your dependence on and devotion to Him
  • loving people, because you are helping their needs thru our church ministries.

 

So, here are some biblical principles on giving…

  1. First-place: God gets the best and first “fruits” of my labor [Proverbs 3:9]
  2. Consistent: Regular, steady giving strengthens my heart, budget, and church [1 Cor. 16:2]
  3. Church-based: My stewardship should begin and be based at my home church, where I serve my family and community [1 Cor.16:2, Malachi 3:10]
  4. Joyful: The main motivation of giving is the joyful love I have for God [2 Cor.9:7, 1 Chron. 29:9]
  5. Grace-filled: I have freedom and responsibility in Christ to move to generosity in my giving [2 Corinthians 8:7b-8, 9:7a, Proverbs 11:25]
  6. Proportionate: Giving a percentage of my income is a great way for me to evaluate and grow my stewardship [1 Cor.16:2, Deuteronomy 16:17, 26:12]
  7. Sacrificial: At times in my life God will peak my growth and build my faith by prompting me to give beyond my ability to a special need [2 Corinthians 8:3-4]

How does Thomas Road handle my giving?

BUDGET. The church budget is merely a tool to accomplish our mission. It is prayerfully designed annually by our pastors and staff, department by department, and guided by a team of deacons and financial professionals. Once approved it is prayed over and affirmed by our church on a Sunday morning.

SYSTEM. We take the handling of money seriously, because it belongs to God. From collection, counting, recording, accounting, and spending of funds our practice is guided by integrity, transparency, and wise stewardship. The appropriate audits are conducted on a regular basis.

OVERVIEW. It takes about $300,000 of giving each week to operate the ministries of our church. Please pray and give toward this. This is a big picture view of how we use the funds…
