4 Ways to Support Converge Church – Part 3

4 Ways to Support Converge Church | Visit the Series Recap for all 4.

Part 3 – Finance us.

Matthew 6:21 – For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

When it comes to finances, everyone has a little bit they can give. My grandfather used to talk about the “few dollars” he had saved up and he always seemed to have a “few dollars” to give to someone who needed it. He was a very generous man during his lifetime and a great example to me.

Luke, who wrote the Biblical books of Luke and Acts, did his work through the gifts of a generous benefactor, Theophilus (Lk 1:1-4; Acts 1:1-2) a person who completely financed his efforts in researching and retelling (like a historian) the life of Jesus and the growth of the early church.

For Converge Church, we would love to have a benefactor to provide us with everything we need, but the reality is that we need YOU, my friends and family, to help finance us: John, Bill, Dave, Carole, Jeff, Dane, Rob, Sarah, Jessica, Thomas, Chris, Sean, Mike, Joe, Derrick, Mike, Scott, Mark, Dale, Karla, Steve and many others.

Money: God or Gift, Jamie MunsonLet me share with you from “MONEY: God or Gift,” a highly recommended new book by Jamie Munson:

Money is a useful tool that God gives us to help others and spread the gospel. When we use it in this way, more people meet Jesus, move from death to life, and enjoy the same grace that has been given to us.

We’ve been blessed by God’s grace thus far with a few generous donors, but we are still in need of various donors giving anywhere from $10/month to $500/month. Please share this with those whom you know are in a position to use what God has given them to promote the gospel of Jesus Christ and consider for yourself how you might be generous toward us.

Practically? Some of you may be thinking, “I really can’t afford to finance Converge Church.” So let me attempt to make it accessible for you:

  • $10/mo = 1 coffee per week
  • $25/mo = 1 movie rental per week
  • $50/mo = 1 lunch out per week
  • $100/mo. = this is a little more, but a bit like adding another cell phone
  • $250/mo. = like adding another mouth to feed

I know YOU can help at any one of these levels…please do so NOW by visiting our support page.
