Our Saviours Lutheran Church Why We Give We offer with joy and thanksgiving what you have first given us—our selves, our time, and our possessions, signs of your gracious love. Receive them for the sake of him who offered himself for us, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. To steward is to care for and tend to all that we have and all that we are. It’s very clear that we each think about our money, our time, and our resources in vastly different ways. We have different priorities for how we spend and use them, as well as what motivates us to set those priorities. And we are all interconnected and affected by the decisions we make. Our church belongs to all of us as a shared resource. We invite you to intentionally reflect about the meaning of giving in your life. It’s a simple thing. We love our church, which is the community that gathers here. We value our beautiful building as a place in which the community gathers for worship, relationship, and service. We depend upon our staff to ensure that aspects of our ministry are supported. All of that requires money to sustain it. So let’s think together about why we give, what we give, what we long for, and where God is leading us as we continue to be a dynamic community, centered in Christ, called, nurtured, and sent, to celebrate, serve, and do justice.
