WHAT'S OUR VIEW OF GIVING?
Biblical giving involves two different relationships - one with God and one with the local faith community. The mission of Christ Community is "Restoring Our Broken World". Faithful stewardship is a necessary ingredient in that process. Giving does not only apply to financial resources; it also includes giving our our time and talents for Christ's kingdom.
WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY ABOUT GIVING?
Long before tithing was a practice of the Israelite people, Cain and Able, the second generation of the human race, brought an offering to the Lord. The Lord blessed Able's offering, but rejected Cain's. Able brought "the firstborn of his flock," while Cain brought "some of the fruits of the soil" as an offering. God wants to be first. After all, everything that we have is already His.
"And all the title of the land, whether of the seed of the land or of the fruit of the tree, is the Lord's. It is holy to the Lord." -Leviticus 27:30
WHERE DOES YOUR GIVING GO?
The General Fund supports weekend services, worship, adult, men & women ministry, AWANA, small groups, facilities, students, kidcity, staff, and more. Basically, anything that keeps CCC ministries running!
The Missions Fund supports local missions (Kids Hope USA, Teen MOPS, etc.); regional missions trips (Sisseton SD; Cleveland, OH; Fort Defiance, AZ; Cortez, CO); and the Great Commision Fund, which supports over 600 missionaries in 60+ countries.
The Building Fund supports the construction of our next facility. Christ Community has 30 acres of donated land that we are planning to develop into our new church campus in the next few years. We have retained an architectural firm and the initial planning phase is underway.
