Giving at the Chevy Chase Presbyterian Church
"What shall I return to the Lord for all God's goodness to me?"
Why should I give?
At the heart of giving is the love of God. God's love for us is abundant, constant, and eternal. God's generosity calls us to joyful, generous giving.
So, give as an expression of your gratitude to God. Give to support the mission and ministry of the Chevy Chase Presbyterian Church and all the ways in which CCPC shares the love of God helping people live more whole and abundant lives.
How is my money used?
How much should I give?
How much to give is an individual decision. We encourage you to make a pledge of how much you will give to the church for the coming year. If you need to, you can always change your pledge.
Give in proportion to your income. Jesus encouraged those with greater income to give in a greater amount. Calculate what three percent or five percent of your income would be, and give that. Then try to increase your giving each year.
For 2012 our average pledge was $3,281.11.
Please prayerfully consider...
- Does your pledge reflect your spiritual growth anc commitment to CCPC?
- Is your pledge a meaningful percent of your income?
- Have you prayed over your pledge?
- When was the last time you increased your pledge?
- Can you increase your pledge this year?
Give regularly. Pledging requires disciplined giving, and pledging allows church leaders to plan for the coming year.
