Why we give
We believe returning a portion of our financial resources to God’s work through our church is an act of worship. We acknowledge that all we have is a gift from God, and as an expression of love we thank God for our blessings and symbolically return the first fruits of our labor as an offering to the Lord.
We believe that living generously is an inseparable part of our following Christ. God does not need our money; rather, we need to give it as an act of thanksgiving and trust. As we learn to trust God more and more, we learn to live generously. As we live generously, we learn to trust God more and more.
All we have is a gift from God, so we believe that returning a portion of our income is an act of worship. What a joy to be able to offer back to God a portion of His generous blessings to us!
Supporting the church financially is an expectation of membership at Broadmoor. We don’t tell you how much you should give, but we believe that it is God’s intention that we grow more generous and take bigger steps in our giving as we become more aware of how richly God has blessed us in Christ. Stewardship is not our way of raising a budget. It is God’s way of raising disciples.
Annual giving by our congregation makes continuing the Lord’s work here in our community and beyond possible. Everything from worship, programs for children, youth & adults, Bible studies, small groups, pastoral care and support, mission trips, and community outreach projects is supported by your gifts. Your generosity ensures that Broadmoor can continue the legacy of service and hospitality that has made Broadmoor an amazing, faith-filled place of worship.
Before you give
Pray for God to lead you to trust him more with your life & your resources. Thank Him for the blessings in your life and ask for guidance and discernment in your giving.
Set your giving goal.
If you are not currently tithing (giving 10% of your income), start with a lower percentage and then plan to increase the percentage each year, growing toward the tithe. The important thing is to begin the spiritual discipline of regular, consistent giving.
Choose how you will give.
Take a look at the ways you can give (listed above) and select the option that works best for you.
