Give Wholeheartedly

Offering is an act of worship.

Its not about how much you give, but why you give, the intent behind the gift. The Church is a family of believers that come together to worship God.

The Church as a responsibility to its members: To meet the practical needs of their members “God’s grace was so powerfully at work in them all that there were no needy persons amount them. For from time to time those who owned land or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales and put it at the apostle’s feet, and it was distributed to anyone who had need” (Acts 4:33-35). The money brought to the elders (leaders) of the church, who are responsible for its distribution to those in need.”

The Church has a responsibility to its surrounding community. “As we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers” (Galatians 6:10). This establishes a priority – God’s family first but seek ways to “serve & help” everyone. To Seek and Serve the community, to bring the word of God to world is evangelism (Acts 1:8). This fellowship / church requires contributions to care for the family of believers (local and external), support the community and to evangelize requires the collection of offerings to support the Church’s mission as directed by God.”

“So, give with a Cheerful Heart and remember the words of our Lord and savior Jesus, “it is more blessed to give than to receive (Acts 20:35).” Southside Church of Christ has several methods of receiving contributions from the family of Christ and the community we serve, through on-line giving (click here – link) to the tried and true method of writing a check.”

“Each should do as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or out of necessity, for God loves a cheerful giver.” 2 Corinthians 9:7

Because of your support, you have planted the seeds that will allow Southside to grow in our community and continue to provide a place for you and others to call home.  Thank you for answering the call to contribute to God’s work here at Southside.
