Giving is one of the most wonderful aspects of the Christian life. Giving back to God a portion of what he's already given us is an act of worship that is vital to our discipleship and Christian growth. God has given us the perfect and most powerful example of giving:
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life." – John 3:16
God has given us so many gifts: our families, food, jobs, cars, resources, and, ultimately, his Son Jesus Christ. Because he has blessed in so many ways, we should have a spirit of giving as well. We are called to give back a portion of the financial resources that God has given us as an act of worship that will serve to continue the ministry of Lakeland Baptist Church both at home and abroad.
We hope you will take seriously the joy of giving to God. God doesn't ultimately need our resources to make himself known. But he invites us to play a part in his mission to reach the nations. One of the primary ways we do this is through financial giving. We hope that you will give to God generously as a "cheerful giver" (2 Corinthians 9:7)!
You can give online (link above) or during our Sunday morning worship service.
