Giving Page Video Transcript

Hey, thanks so much for visiting this page.  More importantly, thanks for being so generous with your time, money and heart.  You are making a big difference in the lives of real people as you partner with us to be a church for Jesus, for Schuylkill County and for your friends who don’t go to church.  No matter who you are or what your journey looks like you are loved here.

A lot of people don’t know this, but everything this church has become and accomplished, everything it will continue to do is a result of you and your generous gifts.  We don’t receive money or contributions from a denomination, this entire place and all the lives changed are made possible by the generous gifts of people who attend this church or are part of our community.  These people believe in the mission of this church and want to see lives and the county changed as we connect people to Jesus.  We aren’t a church just for church people…there are plenty of those, we are a church for the people of schuylkill county, your friends and family members who don’t go to church.  

The bible talks a lot about generosity and giving and it isn’t because God needs your money.  We give because we are thankful.  God has done so much in our lives and continues to do more than we ever expected.  We give because we trust God, he is our provider and everything we have comes from him.  He won’t let us down.  We give because it changes lives.  We have watched as lives have been changed as a direct result of the generosity of the people here but More importantly we give because it changes us.  It sets us free from being controlled by money and and sets us free to live lives of impact and meaning.  Most importantly we give because we want to follow Jesus and have our lives reflect him not our bank accounts.

Listen, we don’t want you to give out of a sense of obligation or pressure.  2 Corinthians 9:7 says that “You must decide in your heart how much to give.  And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure, for God loves a cheerful giver.   We simply ask that you prayerfully consider how God would have you participate in our mission through generous giving and that you would be willing to respond to however he leads you to participate. 

Be part of something amazing in Schuylkill County.  We are a church for Jesus, for Schuylkill county, for your friends and family who don’t go to church and for you, because you are loved here.
