Giving

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be.”

Matthew 6:21

Why we Give

There’s no better investment in the world than the local parish. It is where people meet Jesus and lives are changed.

Giving Draws Us Closer to God

When you invest in what matters to God, you strengthen your relationship with Him.

Giving Grows Our Character

Giving helps us to better reflect the character of God. He has given us everything — not even withholding his own Son! God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son.

Giving Expresses Love For People

Giving helps us to better reflect the character of God. He has given us everything — not even withholding his own Son! God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son.

When you give in your place of worship as an act of worship, you are becoming more of the person God wants you to be. When you give, you are tangibly making a difference in someone’s life. Marriages are restored, lives are healed, and people meet Jesus. There’s no better investment in the world than the local parish.

Not from you
For You

TITHING

The tithe is a tenth of our income that we give to the work of the Lord.

The first mention of the tithe is in Genesis 14: 18-20 where Abraham gave a tithe to Melchizedek the priest. The Law of Moses establishes the giving of the tithe in Leviticus 27: 30-32.

In the New Testament, the Lord Jesus mentions the tithe as something that we should continue along with the other important duties of the law such as justice, mercy and faithfulness (Matthew 23:23). The Apostle Paul further mentions that our attitude towards giving should be cheerful and generous     (2 Corinthians 9: 6-13).

Ready, Set…Grow

Mark 4:26 says, “The kingdom of God is like a man who scatters seed on the ground.” Ready, Set, Grow” is Intercessor’s way of sowing seeds for the  future to accomplish those things the Lord has called us to do.

We are currently in the process of finishing up work in the Parish Hall, updating the office phone system and will be adding improvements to the toddler room, the new meeting room, the Sacristy, as well as the church lobby.

In addition to the current updates and necessary renovations of the church, we are creating a plan to pay off our building as well as exploring the possibility of a future expansion.

Thank you for your support in helping build God’s Kingdom for the future!
