Giving to South Main Baptist Church

JANUARY 7, 2020: A NOTE FROM PASTOR STEVE WELLS

Happy New Year! Your faithful giving means we fully subscribed our 2019 budget, and exceeded our goal by at least $10,000. We’ll spend the next week looking at our expenses for the year, some of which are still coming in, and have a full report on both at the church business meeting on January 26. And, we knew you would want to know as soon as we were able to say it with confidence: we made the budget!

 

A SYSTEMATIC PLAN

The Bible tells us story after generational story of how sharing creates beauty and hope, and how discipline reaped unfathomable rewards for generations. Giving—and systematic giving in particular—focuses our hearts and minds. It helps us prioritize God’s lasting gifts for our lives. Practically speaking, it also levels out cash flow for the church so that our ministers and lay leaders can confidently implement the ministry plans of the church.

A way for every giver

A financial peace

Learning to steward our financial resources God’s way isn’t something we suddenly wake up at age 50 knowing how to do. Find your own path to financial peace so that you can live in joy and give generously with confidence. To quote Dave Ramsey, “Live today like no one else, so you can soon live like no one else.” Financial Peace University is a great way to start: find a class now.
