As a church community, we understand the act of giving to be important for several reasons:
Giving is participating in God's generous, self-giving work among us
God is inviting us, through Jesus, out of the greed and self-centeredness so prevalent in our day, into a life of grace and open-handedness toward others. By giving joyfully and sacrificially, we allow (1) Christ's fullness to be formed in us by the Holy Spirit, and (2) the furtherance of First Free's long-standing ministry presence in, with, and for the neighborhood.
Giving is an act of worship and stewardship
The earth is God's creation, and as those made in God's image, we are appointed earthkeepers and caretakers, called to use our skills and resources for the unfolding and well-being of his world so that creation and all who live in it may flourish. Every part of life is an opportunity to live out this calling, and bring glory of God.
