If you are thinking about filling out an Estimate of Giving Card for 2018, you are invited to prayerfully consider doing so. Live out your gratitude for God’s many blessings by committing a portion of the financial resources of which God has put you in charge.
Why Make a Commitment?
It is a central Christian practice. Christian stewardship is everything we do after we say we believe. This includes what we do with our financial resources as well as our talents. We return to God a portion of what we have received, recognizing that all we are and all we have is a gift from God. The Biblical portion is a tithe (10%) of our income. You can choose whatever percentage makes the most sense for you at this time in your life.
To support the church community. We are created in the image of God to be co-creators of our community of faith. We each bear a responsibility to ensure that Central Presbyterian remains vital and strong. Commitments are the primary way we fund our ministries. Full participation is essential for Central to continue our efforts to move forward into the changing future.
To help other people in need. We bear a responsibility for the world around us. What we commit, supports people and organizations beyond Central: through the work of the clergy and staff, through the use of our building, and through the outreach ministries we support.
To focus our priorities. Jesus calls us to focus on giving ourselves to the things that matter. Many of us lead very busy lives. Yet so much of what we do may not be central to who we are. What matters to you? If Central Presbyterian is on that list, fill out an Estimate of Giving Card and support the community.
