Why Do I Give?

Pastor John
Pastor John

Celebrating God’s abundance, we seek to be a generous community of faith, and to encourage cheerful giving in Christ’s name.

Luke 6:38: “Give and it will be given to you.”

Prayerful Giving—

1 Chronicles 29:13–14 (NRSV): (David prayed to God) “God, we give you thanks, and praise your glorious name.  “But who am I, and who are my people, that we should be able to give as generously as this? Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand.”

Giving from the heart—

2 Corinthians 9:7 (NIV): “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.”

God will not forget—

Hebrews 6:10 (NRSV): “God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.”

Make a Pledge

Pledging is an act of faith—it is a spiritual discipline of generosity that fosters faithfulness, commitment, and responsibility. We believe that everything we have is a gift from God and that generosity is a spiritual issue of the heart.

How Do I Make a Pledge?

Each new year in early January, pledge cards are sent out to everyone on our mailing list. If you are not on our mailing list, you can call the church office at (520) 296-2253 or email Kate (kate@immanuelpc.org) to request a pledge card. When you have prayerfully decided how much to pledge, fill out the card and bring it with you to Commitment Sunday, usually held near the end of January. You can also drop your card in the offering plate anytime you are at church, or mail it to the church office to the attention of the Finance Committee.

Benevolence Fund

The Immanuel Benevolence Fund helps with short-term needs that arise within the congregation and community. Benevolence is a great way to give. Your giving is greatly appreciated!

Endowment Fund—Leave a Legacy

At Immanuel, we believe our work must go beyond our campus, beyond the geographic boundaries of our community. Earnings from our Endowment Fund serve as a reservoir of funds for new and expanding outreach programs locally, nationally and internationally.

Memorial Planning

Death brings loss, sorrow and grief to all. In the face of death, Christians affirm with tears and joy the hope of the gospel, the resurrection—life after death. The resurrection is the central doctrine of the Christian faith and shapes Christians’ attitudes and responses to the event of death. As Christians, we do not have to bear bereavement alone. We are uplifted by the Holy Spirit and sustained by our community of faith. The Church offers a ministry of love and hope to all who grieve.

Immanuel provides the following Memorial Service Guidelines and worksheets to help you make some of the important decisions during a time of loss.  Read more … about Memorial Planning
