You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. “For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.” – 2 Corinthians 9:7
At Peace Lutheran, giving is something we do with a spirit of joy in response to the love and forgiveness we have freely received in Jesus. We never give out of obligation or guilt. Your gift works to help those in need and drives what we’re all about: Touching Lives with the Love and Saving Grace of Jesus.
Methods of Giving
There are many ways to support the ministry of Peace Lutheran Church.
Giving during a Service
During all of our worship services, there’s an opportunity to give. In traditional worship, offering plates are passed. In contemporary worship, you have an opportunity to place your offering in the offering box.
Giving through Electronic Funds Transfer
If you can set up your offerings electronically, it is extremely helpful for more efficient management of the church.
