Giving draws us closer to God
When you invest in what matters to God you strengthen your relationship with him.
Giving grows our
Giving helps us to better reflect the character of God. He has given us everything — not even withholding his own Son! God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son.
Giving expresses love for people
Our giving makes it possible for people to hear the Good News of God’s love for them. It also helps us provide, through our Ministry partners, critical care to the poor and those in need.
“I will not sacrifice to the LORD my God offerings which cost me nothing.”
2 Samuel 24:24
HOW WE GIVE
Here at St. Pius we frame our giving around the concept of the “Four P’s”
Growing in generosity means being intentional about our giving. Planning our giving means that we intentionally set aside money from our budget to give away. An efficient way to plan our giving is to give electronically.
Making giving a priority means giving it first place in our budgets. Growing in generosity requires that we don’t give leftovers. We give our “first fruits” back to God.
In planning our gifts, we pick a percentage to give away, keeping in mind the biblical concept of the tithe or giving ten percent back to God. Wherever you choose to begin, identify a percentage of your income to give away.
Our goal over time is to increase the percentage of our income that we give away. As God blesses us financially we recognize that we have been blessed to be a blessing.
