Why Do We Give?

We think Christians should be the most generous people on earth to support worthy causes. And there is no organization with more potential to change the world than the local church! (2 Corinthians 9:6, Ephesians 3:10)
We believe one of the top competitors for our devotion to Jesus is money. Giving strengthens our devotion to Christ, helps fight against greed in our hearts and allows us to demonstrate that He is more important to us than material things. (Matthew 6:24)
When we give, we learn to trust in God and His provision instead of our perceived self-sufficiency. We’re then free to live open-handedly with the gifts God gives us.

How Do We Give?

Joyfully and Generously
As we grow in the grace of giving, the church grows in its ability to do God’s work.
Remember this – a farmer who plants only a few seeds will get a small crop. But the one who plants generously will get a generous crop. 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.” And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others. (2 Corinthians 9:6-8)
Since you excel in so many ways – in your faith, your gifted speakers, your knowledge, your enthusiasm, and your love for us – I want you to excel also in this gracious act of giving. (2 Corinthians 8:7)
Sacrificially
Giving sacrificially inconveniences us. Our flesh is quick to offer excuses and justification, but the gospel calls us to deep and radical sacrifice. Do we actually give to the point that we feel it and the feeling stings? Does the call to take up our cross (Matthew 16:24-26) not also carry the charge to lay down our wallets and checkbooks?
We know what real love is because Jesus gave up his life for us. So we also ought to give up our lives for our brothers and sisters. If someone has enough money to live well and sees a brother or sister in need but shows no compassion – how can God’s love be in that person? (1 John 3:16-17)
Regularly
We should set aside our gifts for God with predetermined regularity. In our culture, we think that translates to “give when you get paid.” When God blesses us with income, the proper response is to set aside a portion of that money immediately to give back to his work.
On the first day of each week, you should each put aside a portion of the money you have earned. (1 Corinthians 16:2)

Schedule Your Giving

We get it, you have a lot to remember! Life gets busy between work, errands, and family commitments, and giving gets put on the back burner. Give yourself a break and schedule your giving, so you have one less thing to worry about.

Scheduled giving also offers SunHills greater financial stability by spreading revenue more evenly throughout the year and more accurate financial information on which to plan for future ministry.

Your giving makes a big difference!

Jesus is doing amazing things through SunHills Church and your faithful giving is part of it. We believe in the power of generosity – what it does for the person doing the giving and for the purpose that the giving supports.
