“Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name; bring an offering, and come into his courts!”
Giving offerings to God is an act of worship. We each give daily offerings of our time and talents to help others through our vocations. As Luther famously said, “The maid who sweeps her kitchen is doing the will of God just as much as the monk who prays—not because she may sing a Christian hymn as she sweeps but because God loves clean floors.”
Yet there is also a time to bring an offering to the house of the Lord. The Church collects these offerings and uses them to proclaim God’s Love through Word and Deed. The offerings given to St. Paul’s provide for the upkeep of the facilities, the salaries of staff, supplies for our programs, hospitality during events, and at least 10% given to mission needs of the greater church and to the community.
We issue envelopes with numbers to those who will be giving monetary offerings regularly so that contributions may be recorded for tax purposes. Those wishing to have their offerings withdrawn automatically from a checking or savings account are welcome to speak with our church office to make that arrangement.
If you are interested in offering your time and talent to the congregation and its work, see the Stewardship page for service opportunities.
