If you would consider Arborfield your church, we would encourage you to consider giving financially to support the ministry here.
As people trusting the Lord Jesus, we have been given so much for which we want to praise God. We know the forgiveness of sins, the hope of heaven and the gift of His indwelling Spirit...and that is just for starters! We have also received many other blessings, including financial blessings. So how will we use the financial resources that God has entrusted to us in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ? Please think and pray this through in the light of the information below:
What the Bible says about giving:
The New Testament lays down no laws about how much someone should give. But Paul helps us understand many of the principles of Christian giving in 2 Corinthians chapters 8 and 9, where he encourages us to give: sacrificially, generously, gratefully, realistically, lovingly, actually, freely, confidently, encouragingly. We want to encourage joyful and generous giving, not only to our churches, but also to local, national and international mission. However, the Bible also states that we should not give 'under compulsion' and it is certainly not our intention for you to feel this way.
What to do next:
Please contact the church office if you have any further questions about giving, or to speak to the Treasurer.
