Why We Give

First, Christians believe that everything is owned by God in the first place, and that we are simply managers of his resources, called to direct them toward that which aligns with his will. (Psalm 24:1)

Secondly, Christians trust that God has generously given us His son, Jesus, and through Him has already met our deepest needs: salvation and peace with God.

In light of these truths Jesus himself makes it clear to his followers that spirituality and generosity are inseparable. (Luke 6:38)

Likewise God has ordered the world in such a way that He works through the sacrifice and generosity of His people to meet the needs of others and, in particular, to fuel the mission of His church.

When such spiritually connected generosity gets lived out the end results are beautiful. Entire communities are blessed, the local church is well equipped, and the Christian giver glorifies God who delights in our willingness to give toward the needs of others and to depend deeply upon Him. (2 Cor. 9:7; Malachi 3:10

Connection Church is a campus and a ministry of St. Paul Lutheran Church in Trenton. This means that we operate with one unified budget.  Therefore all checks or other giving documents will be marked toward St. Paul Lutheran Church.
