4th May 2017
When I became a Christian – after having first told my pastor that I wanted to be baptised – I began tithing. I had already realised that how I managed my money was a discipleship issue and an indication of my willingness to trust God for my life. Our giving is an act of worship, a response to the generosity and grace shown to each of us by Jesus.
This month is our Annual Giving Review. When it comes to giving at King’s, we teach the principle of stewardship, that we should each take responsibility to manage our money so that we can give generously and sacrificially out of what we have, not out of what we don’t have. God loves a cheerful giver, and is ultimately more interested in the heart than the actual amount! Recently, I produced a short video which summarises some of our core, Biblical convictions about money, stewardship and giving. As we come up to our Annual Giving Review this month, can I ask you to take five minutes to watch it?
I am asking all of you who call King’s home to prayerfully review your giving, and come ready to return your form on Sunday 14th May or Sunday 21st May. If you have not had a chance to pick up the Annual Giving Review booklet and response form, you can find them here. We will also be taking up an additional offering towards our Multi-Site Fund on these Sundays. Our target on this occasion is an additional £40,000.
King's has always been a generous church and I believe what God has been able to do through us is a reflection of the ongoing generosity of this church family. So I would like to take this opportunity to thank each of you once again for your faithful, generous giving.
