You can give to Coastal’s Christmas Offering through both PayPal and TEXT Giving. In PayPal simply use the word “Christmas” on the Purpose line. When TEXTing, text the amount, space, and then type the keyword “Christmas” and send. It’s that simple! This year’s Christmas Offering is going toward digging a water well in Haiti, funding our LOVE CAN Help a Child budget, and remodeling our children’s area/child check-in as we move into our new building.
What the Bible says about giving
Giving is a vital part of spiritual formation and growth. It requires two things of us:
Giving is an active expression of our faith. It recognizes God as our True Provider and affirms our confidence in His ability to supply all we need. It’s an act of gratitude and dependence.
“Bring all the tithes into the storehouse so there will be enough food in my Temple. If you do,” says the LORD Almighty, “I will open the windows of heaven for you. I will pour out a blessing so great you won’t have enough room to take it in! Try it! Let me prove it to you!” Malachi 3:10 (NLT)
As we listen to God’s voice and seek His will for our lives, His plan for giving will become obvious to each of us. In response, we can eagerly give, knowing that it pleases Him. Through our gifts, we prove faithful in the stewardship of all God has provided for us, while He blesses us beyond what we can imagine.
Giving requires the highest standard of personal integrity and discipline. It is not a casual or occasional thing. In 2 Corinthians 8-9, the Bible teaches we are to give willingly, generously, and cheerfully. And our pattern should reflect a regular and systematic plan.
With these two principles in mind, we are providing online/mobile giving as a simple way to prioritize and expedite your personal plan for giving. What are the benefits?
It keeps first things first.
The Bible indicates giving is to be a “first” and not a last or leftover matter in our lives. Read Proverbs 3:9-10 . It is easy to let our intentions be compromised by the pressure of expenses and billing cycles.
Have you ever forgotten your gift, left it at home or pledged to double it in the future? Have you had times where you have fallen behind because of travel or other schedule interruptions? Online/mobile giving provides a way to stay up to date with your budget.
Through online/mobile giving, you expedite your gift, simplify our accounting, and strengthen our base of regular support.
