For the convenience of our members, we do have the option for online giving. When giving, we strongly encourage that people give with an open, thankful heart. Over and over in the scriptures, we are called not to simply give, but to overflow out from the abundance that God has provided for us. If you choose to give in this way, please click the link below and follow the instructions.
What is Ingathering Sunday? It is a specific time and place where we, together as a Nazareth family and faith community, prayerfully commit our finances and our lives in service as we look toward 2018. We commit to “give out of love for Christ in the area of our faith”.
Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. 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. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. As it is written:
“They have freely scattered their gifts to the poor;
their righteousness endures forever.”
Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.
This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of the Lord’s people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God. Because of the service by which you have proved yourselves, others will praise God for the obedience that accompanies your confession of the gospel of Christ, and for your generosity in sharing with them and with everyone else. And in their prayers for you their hearts will go out to you, because of the surpassing grace God has given you. Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift! (2 Corinthians 9:6-15)
