The Immanuel Benevolence Fund helps various short-term needs that arise within the congregation and community. Benevolence is a great way to give and 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 a 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.

We hope that our Memorial Service Guidelines will help you make some of these decisions.

Make a Pledge

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

How do I make a pledge?

Each new year in early January, a pledge card is 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 the church office (kate@immanuelpc.org) and request a 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. If you miss Commitment Sunday, you can drop your card in the offering plate the next time you’re at worship, or mail it to the church office to the attention of the Finance Committee.

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

WHY GIVING?

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

Prayerful Giving —

1 Chronicles 29:13–14: (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.”

Proverbs 11:25 (NLT): “The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed.”

Ezra 2:68–69: “Families gave freewill offerings toward the rebuilding of the house of God. According to their ability they gave to the treasury for this work.”

Isaiah 32:8 (NIV): “But the noble make noble plans, and by noble deeds they stand.”

 

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.”

Hebrews 13:16: “Do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.”

 

God will not forget —

Hebrews 6:10: “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.”

Matthew 25:35–40: “I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’  … ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.'”
