30-Day Giving Challenge
We invite you to discover the joy of giving this December by being part of our 30-Day Giving Challenge. As we enter a season where giving is often associated with being stressed and hurried, let’s change our posture into one of proclaiming, "God owns it all! I choose to joyfully give back to Him because He is my faithful provider!"
Generosity Builds Us Up
The Bible tells us that God wants us to pass on blessing! He is generous to us because He loves us and because He wants us to be generous to those around us—for their sake, but also for ours (2 Corinthians 9:6-11).
When we give generously, we:
Build our faith and trust in Him to continue to provide.
Declare that we choose to be good stewards with what God has given us.
Break any stronghold that finances may have in our hearts—whether as an idol or worries.
The Local Church
When you give, you get to be a tangible part of God’s Kingdom work through the local church! You become an active participant in seeing lives transformed by God, and being His hands and feet right here in our city and region.
Everything that’s associated with our worship services, special Christmas Eve and Easter services, Youth and Kids’ Ministries, discipleship training and events, outreach activities, and compassion responses happens through the financial participation of church family like you.
The work of Kingdom City reaches far beyond Alberta! Part of each dollar goes toward our C&MA Global Advance Fund, to make sure our International Workers have what they need to be reaching people around the globe.
Take the Challenge
Many of us feel like we work too hard for too little as it is, and the idea of giving generously back to God seems overwhelming, if not impossible. Here’s the good news: When we honour God through our giving, God promises to pour out overflowing blessing to us. We know God is faithful to His promises!
"Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, ”and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.” —Malachi 3:10
For the next 30 days, let’s pray daily and give* as God prompts us during the month of December. Let’s see where God takes us by the end of 2018, and start 2019 well!
If you are not tithing already, a great way to start is with the 30-Day Giving Challenge. If you’re behind in your tithe, now’s the perfect time to catch up. If you’re already tithing, keep on doing it, and pray about gifts above and beyond. God tells us to test Him in this area and He will pour out blessings in return (read Malachi 3:10 again!). We know God will show himself faithful during these thirty days. Share your stories of God’s provision to you as you honour Him through your giving!
For the next 30 days, let’s give as God prompts us.
