With your authorization, our treasurer can help you set up an automatic deduction for the frequency you want and in the amount you choose from your financial institution. Regular contributions like this make a big difference in our ability to plan the church's budget and meet financial obligations. Thank you - so much - for your thoughtfulness.
We welcome alternative philanthropic gifts, such as planned gifts from estates, shares of stock, proceeds of a life insurance policy, designating the church as a beneficiary of a will, etc. Letting the treasurer know of your intent to provide such gifts is an important part of the church's financial planning. Our church headquarters has a Director of Planned Giving, Mark Wyncoll, who is also available to help. Use the Contact us form or call our treasurer to discuss and learn more.
Freedom is a very foundational teaching of Sunrise Chapel and the New Church. In terms of giving financially to the church, freedom is key in cultivating voluntary generosity. Therefore, Sunrise Chapel does not suggest donations of any amount or percentage, but leaves members and friends in freedom to give according to their hearts and abilities. The Church then has the responsibility to use the generous gifts of its donors wisely in the service of the Lord.
Biblical stewardship includes many aspects, including volunteering time and talent. And the Bible frequently singles out financial generosity as representative of a person’s heart.
The Old Testament teaches: “Everyone shall give as he/she is able, according to the blessing of the Lord your God which He has given you.” Deuteronomy 16:17
In the New Testament the apostle Paul says, “Each person should give what he/she has decided from the heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion.” 2 Corinthians 9:7
We encourage you to participate in our program for purchasing “gift cards” through Great Lakes Scrip. Each card you purchase “gives back” a percentage to the church. You get the full face value of the card, so it’s a way of donating without any additional out-of-pocket expense.
There are hundreds of cards to choose from, including grocery stores and gas stations as well as department stores and online merchants. Many cards can also be reloaded through www.shopwithscrip.com with the same percentage donation going to the church each time.
For more information and to order cards, contact our Treasurer, Bill Smith.
