Why do we give?
At Leawood Presbyterian Church we are learning about what it means to worship and live for God. We believe this is a holistic pursuit. Because we are human beings who have an economic life, worshiping God includes a progressive and joyful surrender of our financial life to God and his purposes in the world.
The Bible teaches more about the issue of money than it does about many other topics. Having a healthy understanding of and relationship to money is critical to live life fully in the way of Jesus. For followers of Jesus giving away 10% of our resources has served as a healthy measurement of our financial life. While this number is not set in stone, and some may choose to give more, we believe the giving away of 10% of what we have control over has served as a starting point for followers of Jesus, taught in the Bible and practiced by Christians throughout history.
As people who follow the God revealed by Jesus Christ, we believe we are called to a life of ever-increasing generosity. In the same way, we believe in responsible stewardship including a debt-free life. Leawood Presbyterian church is completely debt-free! god is amazingly generous to us. think about the blessings of your life. think about the sacrifice of jesus for you. Your generous giving to this offering will make a difference in our church, our community, and our world. Learn more about this year's projects here
