Giving

Giving at Church

We encourage all of those who are part of our church family to give—not out of obligation but out of a spirit of worship. Your gifts allow God's work to be done in our midst, in our community, and in the world around us.

giving F.A.Q.

"In every way I’ve shown you that by laboring like this, it is necessary to help the weak and to keep in mind the words of the Lord Jesus, for He said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ ” Acts 20:35
"Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver." 2 Cor. 9:7

  • This is not my home church. Should I give? 

While we appreciate when people sow into our ministry, guests should not feel pressured to give. We always encourage guests to give their tithe to their home church. 

  • How much should I give? Doesn't God ask for 10%?

We believe that the method ordained of God for the support and spread of His cause is by giving of tithes and offerings. The word "tithe" comes from an Old English root meaning "one tenth." The Old Testament refers to Abraham and Jacob tithing, as well as a system of tithes established in the law of Moses. In the New Testament, tithing is mentioned, but above all, we are encouraged to give cheerfully, out of our response to the extravagant love of God towards us, and to meet the needs of others out of our own abundance. If you have further questions, please see one of our leaders.

How Your Donations Help

In 2018, we were able to support a number of ministries. We continued our participation with Operation Christmas Child, a ministry of Samaritan's Purse, and were able to provide nearly 40 Christmas shoeboxes to be sent around the world during the 2018 Collection Drive. Thank you to our volunteers who assisted with shopping and packing.

We began a new relationship with Teen Challenge in Manchester in 2018 and now support them each month by providing the cost of one resident's tuition. We welcomed some of the residents to a service over the summer when they were able to share their testimonies with us about overcoming addiction and receiving Jesus. We look forward to welcoming another group of residents to a service in July 2019. 

We maintained our relationship with New Life Home for Women in Manchester by continuing our monthly offerings to their ministry. We are planning to welcome some of the ladies who are enrolled in the program to one of our services in June. 

Our benevolence ministry which exists to provide financial assistance with groceries, gas and utilities continues to be available for members of our own body, and occasionally our greater community. We were able to work with a housing agency in Nashua last year and assist a person financially in getting set up in a new home. 

One other place that we give is to our guest speakers who come and minister to our local body. We welcome ministers from other churches, as well as leaders and teachers within our own body who minister when Pastor Ron is out of town. 

Overall for the year 2018, you all donated ~$3100 towards our Missions and Benevolence outreaches, and to our guest speakers, and we thank you for your faithful giving.
