Monetary Ways To Give
"Give, and it will be given to you... " (Luke 6:38 AMP)
There are many ways that you can give to our church family.
1. Make sure to set aside at least 10% of your net income every week or month.
Donating at least 10% of your net weekly or monthly income to church is your spiritual requirement. This is called your "tithe." See What Are Tithes & Offerings to read about the difference between the two.
But your giving shouldn't stop there. Once you accomplish consistent giving at 10%, continue to make incremental increases (11%, 12%, 13%...). This is part of growing in your faith. The same God who allowed you to accomplish your goal of 10% will help you meet your goal of 11%. You just have to trust Him.
2. Financially contribute to a major project at the church.
The church often raises money to fund major projects. Examples of previous major projects at Providence include a new roof, sound system, and church van. Typically, when we have a major project, there are special envelopes for you to use. Supporting these projects helps us continue to spread the Gospel, which is referenced in our mission, "To share the Good News of the Love of Christ..."
3. Buy tickets to church events.
The church is a non-profit organization, so the goal is to raise money to funnel back into the community. Buying tickets to events that are sponsored by the church is one way to ensure that you are supporting the community. A good example of this is the Homeless Committee's Candy Drive that is offered every spring. We all enjoy our "church candy," but the real enjoyment is knowing that the monies raised from this initiative go toward helping homeless citizens in Baltimore City. Simply put, when you are buying church candy for your enjoyment, you are also buying food and clothing for "the least of these" (Matthew 25: 40).
4. Add Providence Baptist Church to your will.
Money is only valuable to you if you can use it. While it may sound morbid, remember that the people who remain after you are gone need support. While you are considering the needs of your biological family post-death, also consider the needs of your community and church family.
How can I continue to make a difference when your physical body is no longer present? There are many ways to do this, and one of them is donate a portion of your assets to Providence.
