Below you will find directions for downloading and printing your 2017 Giving Statement. We want to thank you so much for your generous support.
On behalf of the Staff and Leadership here at StoneBridge Church, as well as the entire congregation, I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere appreciation for your faithfulness in giving. Without the generous giving of people like you, the ministry here would simply not be able to function!
I truly believe the best way for a church to be funded is through the giving of it's people, We appreciate your faithfulness in aiding our efforts to take care of the needs of the church, as well as the missions the church supports.
Tithing and giving preceded the giving of the law, and even when Jesus had opportunity in the New Testament to do away with it, he simply affirmed its validity; Matthew 23:23(NIV) "Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocirtes! You give a tenth of your spices - mint, dill and cummin. But you have neglected the more important matters of the law - justice, mercy, and faithfulness. you should have practiced the latter, without neglecting the former."
"Without neglecting the former" simply means that along with a heart towards justice, mercy and faithfulness should still be a heart to tithe and give.
For those who have experienced the joy of giving, it goes without saying that life is more full, complete and meaningful as we take on the heart of our Lord and Savior who gave His all for us!
No goods or services were exchanged between you and the church for the contribution(s) we received other than intangible religious benefits.
Again, thank you and may God continue to richly bless you in so many ways in this New Year!
Blessings in Christ,
