Give to our church
On this page we’d like to share with you the joy of giving, and the impact that it can have on the ministry of our church and our mission to share real hope in the real Jesus with the world!
It is more blessed to give than receive!
Jesus showed us the ultimate example of giving when he gave his own life as a sacrifice for our sins so that we could be forgiven and receive the hope of eternal life.
As people who have received such an amazing gift, we are now set free to cheerfully give to provide the resources to spread the message of real hope in the real Jesus through believing in the gospel.
Our church needs over $270,000 per year from gifts in order to continue our work of sharing the gospel with children, youth, families, adults, and seniors in Oak Flats and beyond. All our income comes from the generosity of the people in our church.
If you are a part of our church then we’d love you to be involved in financial partnership so that we can keep telling people about Jesus.
As we read in the Bible in 2 Corinthians 2:7-8:
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. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.
Our progress so far
Each week we need to receive $5,000 in order to meet our commitments. In the last calendar month, our average weekly giving was $4,745, leaving a gap of $255.
Up to the end of the last calendar month we needed to have received $235,000. Compared to that total we received $206,833, leaving a gap of $28,167.
How to partner with us in the ministry of our church
Electronic giving is a great way to give! It helps you prayerfully plan your partnership with us, and then the bank will help you keep that commitment, even when you may be unable to attend a weekly service.
