Three Reasons Why We Give:

God's Generosity Leads to Our Generosity

As members of Greencastle Presbyterian Church and as disciples, we always come back to what God does for us first and foremost.  Thankfully, God's love, grace, and generosity towards us is abundant and sufficient.  In Jesus Christ, God gives us everything that we can ever need for this life and for salvation.  Moreover, we recognize with the psalmist how God has provided so much for us through the abundance of material goods and creation.  Therefore, we want to live lives of radical generosity to support and love others.

We Believe God Is Doing Great Things through GPC

As a church family, we give our tithes and donations because we know and trust God is doing great work in our community through our church.  Through our weekly worship services, through our Round Barn Daycare, through SAWs, and through so many other ways, God is blessing us to be a blessing to others.  Giving financially to our church supports all of this and more.

We Believe in the Value and Discipline of Tithing

The only way for us to grow as Christians is to begin practicing our faith in specific and concrete ways.  Offering a financial pledge allows us to start walking in such faith.  We celebrate those who are giving for the first time to God's work through our church and to those who are active tithers - offering 10% of their income towards God's work.  Any act of giving financially towards ministry is a way for us to recognize that God did not withhold anything in God's great desire to love and save us.  Practicing financial giving allows us to demonstrate our commitment, therefore, to love our community like Jesus.

God is doing great things through our congregation!  Whether you are making a single contribution to support a specific ministry or committing a weekly tithe as a practice of your faith and community, thank you!  May we continue to give generously AND love our community boldly.

Acts 2:42-47 - Questions for Reflection & Study

This past Sunday, we took a look at Luke's first summary passage in the story of Acts:  chapter 2, verses 42-47.  Here, Luke is presenting a billboard of what the Church looks like at its best.  He is trying to convince Theophilus that Christianity is worth his attention. 

The early Church captures what all of us are looking for, whether we know it or not.  This is a close community that truly cares for one another, where everyone truly is seen as a brother and sister, and where no one person is considered more or less important as the other.  Needs are being met.  There is joy in their fellowship. 

Take a moment to think about a time in your life when you experienced the joy and blessing of a deep, loving community?  Where was it, and what made this community so different?  What role did you play in this community?
Luke tells us the disciples "devoted themselves" to four essential practices.  The Greek word for "devoted" is one that is often used in the context…

Acts 3:11-21 - Questions for Reflection & Prayer

This week we continued looking at the story of Peter and John healing a lame man on their way to the Temple (Acts 3).  Indwelled with the Spirit of the Living God, Peter and John are close to the source of all life:  Jesus the Christ.  They are continuing to devote themselves to the habits and practices that will allow the fruits of the Spirit to grow within them, including devoting themselves to times of communal prayer on a daily basis.

Now, the crowds hear this news of the lame man's healing, and they run to see this man and to discover what power or technique has healed the man.  They discover the man standing next to Peter and John and assume that these two are "holy men," something many people were searching for in Jesus' day.  This same search still goes on today.  One way we seek a better life is to seek out celebrities, gurus and human leaders that we can put our faith and hope in.

Question for reflection:  How are we tempted in our culture to put our trust i…

Acts 5:1-11 - Questions for reflection & prayer

This past Sunday we looked at one of the more unsettling stories in the Book of Acts:  the deaths of Ananias and Sapphira.  As shared by Luke, this couple sold a piece of land and then proceeded to bring only a portion of the profit to the apostles - laying it at their feet for the good of the community.  However, what appeared to be their grave mistake (pun intended) was their collusion in claiming to have brought all the proceeds to the apostles when - in fact - they were keeping some back for themselves.  Peter announces first to Ananias the Lord's judgment, followed by a similar verdict being handed down to Sapphira a short time later.

Seen by itself, this is a strange story, but it begins to make more sense when we see it as "part of the whole."  The story of Ananias and Sapphira comes right after we hear once again of the community's unity and generosity, including their willingness to share their own goods and resources to take care of one another (ch. 4).  Th…
