Giving

Giving is an act of worship.

It is gratefulness for God’s overwhelming generosity to us that moves us to give. As we daily submit our resources to Christ, we are recognizing that every good thing that we have comes from God, and that all we have belongs to him. As we give, we are living into the reality that Jesus is indeed Lord of every area of our lives, that he is our true hope and security. There is real joy and freedom in this.

Though God does not need our money, he calls us, in love, to give. This call is an invitation to learn, ever more, to put our trust in him. It is an invitation to participate in the work that he is doing in the world. It is an invitation to become more like him, as giving is an act that has the power to change what we love. “Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” (Luke 12:34)

 

WAYS TO GIVE

There are four ways to give to St. Andrew’s: in person during Sunday services, mail a check, drop off a check or give online. Instructions for each way are detailed below.

SUNDAY MORNING

While we are not passing an offering plate during Sunday services, you can still give. Simply drop your financial gift in one of the two black, slit-top boxes inside the sanctuary on either side of the main doors. This is also a great place to place your prayer cards.

MAIL A CHECK

Simply place your check in an envelope and address it to:

St. Andrew’s Church
Accounting Office
8300 Kanis Road
Little Rock, AR 72204

Put a stamp on the envelope and drop it in your mailbox or give it to your postman.

 

DROP OFF A CHECK

If you’d rather drop a check off at the office, you can place it in the mail slot in the outside kitchen door (the gray door on your left as you are coming in the main doors under the portico). This mail slot drops into a locked box and is checked by our accounting department regularly.
