God's people have always been characterized by giving, but the way they've given has changed over time. For example, people no longer bring goats, sheep, calves and grain to God as they did in the Old Testament. Giving money is simpler, cleaner and theologically sounder since Jesus has made the ultimate sacrifice. As the way that money is exchanged changes, we at Changing Lives for Christ are extending members a new way to offer their financial gifts to God.
Giving is an important aspect of the Christian life. After all, Luke records that Jesus himself said, "It is more blessed to give than to receive" (Acts 20:35). At Changing Lives for Christ, we want to encourage all members to pray about giving and give as God leads them.
Anyone who would like to give to Changing Lives for Christ online will soon be able to do so electronically through our church website. The system will make it easy to quickly transfer money from a bank account or debit card to the church safely and securely. Soon, one-time gifts and recurring withdrawals can both be set up, and gifts can be given either to the church's general fund or a specific church project.
