Giving & Stewardship

 

Give Online

 

God is at work at First Presbyterian Church. The Spirit of Christ is moving among us. People are coming to faith, and Christians are being helped to persevere. And He is using the ordinary contributions of ordinary church members to do it.

And so, as we think about stewardship, we need to remind ourselves that God is able to take our small contributions–of time and prayer, and yes, of finances too–and make something glorious of them. He is able. All He asks of us is to join in the work of ministry. Give. Serve. Pray. Go. And watch as the Lord multiplies your contributions, however slight you might think they are. Like the five loaves and two fish that Jesus multiplied to feed the five thousand, I believe He will use your contributions to reach the North State Street corridor, the greater Jackson area, and even to the ends of the earth!

These are exciting days for First Presbyterian Church. We hope you will partner with us as God does far more abundantly above all we ask or think in the year ahead.
