Why We Give

As Christians, we recognize everything we have comes from God, and we are simply sharing these gifts for Kingdom work. Through our tithes and offerings, we demonstrate in a tangible way our love for God and our neighbors. Each year, we ask our members to commit to their tithes and offerings for the coming year in support of our church's ministry and mission. We do this for three reasons:

  • All we have is a gift from God, so we believe that giving to God's work is an act of worship.
  • At Resurrection, giving is an expectation of membership. The church does not specify how much an individual should give, but we hope each person will commit a percentage of their income and increase that amount as they are able.
  • Annual giving makes possible: worship, programs for children and students, Bible studies, small groups, pastoral care and support, mission trips, community service, and building and operational needs.

Corporate Stewardship & Financial Reporting

As a church, because we value corporate stewardship in addition to individual stewardship, we make our quarterly financial statistics available to the public. In addition, the annual audit report is available for review by making an appointment with the Finance & Accounting department.

Stewardship FAQs

What is Stewardship & Generosity?

As Christians we recognize everything we have comes from God, and we are simply sharing those gifts for Kingdom work. Through our tithes and offerings, we demonstrate in a tangible way our love for God and our neighbors. Pray about giving regularly to God's ministry and mission through Resurrection with a goal of tithing 10% of your annual income. (For more information about tithing, read this GPS Guide post.)

What is a pledge?

A pledge is an individual or family’s annual commitment to the church of their tithes and offerings in support of our church’s ministry and mission.

Why do we need annual pledges?

Annual pledges support all we do at Resurrection. This includes funding worship, programs for children and students, Bible studies, small groups, pastoral care and support, mission trips, community service, building and operational needs, and paying our staff. We plan our ministry and mission through Resurrection by relying on your financial pledges to develop next year’s budget.

When should I pledge?

You can complete a pledge at any time. Church of the Resurrection engages in an annual Stewardship campaign during worship in November. As a congregation, we will express our gratitude to God and present our cards, representing our commitment to God’s ministry through our church.

Do I have to pay when I pledge?

You will be able to specify when and how often you are able to pay on your pledge card. If you need to adjust your payment preferences, please contact our Development team.

What happens if I need to change my pledge?

If your circumstances change and you need to decrease, or you would like to increase your pledge, you may email or call the Development Team at (913) 232-4113 and modify your pledge at any time. This helps ensure our records are accurate.

What ways can I give?

One-time gifts are simple to set up using a debit or credit card, or from a bank account.

Recurring gifts can be set up on a schedule that works for you and provide flexibility to track and manage your giving. You can find instructions on how to set up a recurring gift here.

Appreciated stock or qualified charitable distributions are also giving options. Contact the Finance Department for more information.

For questions or help with your financial giving, please email the Finance Department or call (913) 232-4171.
