WHY WE GIVE
Opportunities for charity are everywhere, and there are plenty of credible places to give. In fact, you might think Foothill Church is just another one of them. To us, one thing is different. Our giving isn’t about charity.
+ IT'S ABOUT WORSHIP.
God instructs us, through the Bible, to give regularly, generously and sacrificially out of all that He gives us—all as part of our worship of Him. What an appropriate response to who He is and all He has done…an expression of gratitude, obedience, and reverence: worship.
But, why give money to the church? Because it’s the right thing to do? It’s a good tax write-off? God needs it? The church expects it?
Proverbs 3:5 "Honor the the Lord with your wealth and with the firstfruits of all all your produce."
+ TO PUT IT SIMPLY, IT'S WHAT GOD SAYS TO DO.
Not because God needs what we have. But because we need to give it. What we do with what we have directs our heart. Giving to God reminds us that He has given us everything we have, and can be counted on to meet every need we will ever have. And The Church is His plan, through Jesus, to reconcile the world to himself. To bring healing through relationships, to support one another and encourage one another. So we give, to advance the gospel through His ministry.
Malachi 3:10 "Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. And thereby put me to the test, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you a blessing until there is no more need."
BEST WAY TO GIVE
Giving through the Foothill Church App, Online and Text-to-Give are easy, and we encourage you to use these tools to help you stay faithful in your giving, but the church pays processing fees. As you can imagine, these fees add up when multiplied by greater amounts and over hundreds of gifts a month. We encourage our givers to use the 1% option by setting up an Electronic Bank Account Transfer.
Foothill Church encourages the responsible use of credit cards. We offer the opportunity to donate by credit card as a convenience to those who manage their finances in this way.
We encourage you to prayerfully consider your resources before making a credit card donation of any kind.
