Why do I share a tithe and offering with St. Luke’s?
As a pastor, I will never ask anything of a member that I’m not willing to do myself. I serve, worship, invite others, participate in community, continue to learn and teach others, and give a tithe plus share additional offerings to the church – Simply What Every Christian Should Do.
My calendar for the upcoming weeks includes:
Service – Joining St. Luke’s to pack meals this Friday, 4:30 PM at the Chanhassen Feed My Starving Children. Contact Craig Brandt at email@example.com, if you would like to volunteer or click here to sign up.
Worship – Sunday at 8:30 and 10 AM. Beyond attending, I look forward to serving communion.
Evangelism – Inviting others to join St. Luke’s packing meals this Friday.
Community – Enjoying Wednesday Night Live Dinner at St. Luke’s, 5:30 PM. Suggested Donation: Free for children through Kindergarten. $3/for others. Max $10/family.
Stewardship – Turning in my completed 2023 Pledge and starting my next year’s increase this week. This includes identifying a ministry or activity to participate in each Core Value.
Discipleship – Learning from and teaching the Confirmation Students on Wednesday Night. Opportunities for all ages from 6-7 PM.
The question is why do I do this? Yes, I’m a pastor, but I would do this even if I wasn’t. My family finds that serving others, praising God, creating goodwill, having church friendships, being generous, and sharing faith together and with others, makes all the difference in life.
I encourage you click here to look at the ELCA, 10 Stewardship Principles. It speaks to how to live a generous life – giving a tithe and your life as an offering.
So I invite you to share Why do you share a tithe and offering with St. Luke’s?
