We can't outgive God
When you give to the local church, you are tangibly making a God-sized impact in our families, our school, our city, and all throughout the world. Marriages are being restored, lives are being healed and people are meeting Jesus. There really is no better investment that we can make as followers of Jesus than in support of His mission through His Church.
For many, the idea of bringing the first 10% of our income to the Church is overwhelming. The thing is, it doesn't matter how much or how little we make, God promises to pour out blessings on us when we give. The General Fund at Redeemer supports the ministry efforts of our church here on campus, throughout our city and to the world.
Contributions for our Campus Expansion fund support the costs for new buildings, building improvements or expansions at our North Central Austin campus. Our desire is that our campus is able to support our current ministry needs with room to grow so that new people to our community can connect with Jesus and each other.
A tithe—which just means “tenth”—is defined as the first 10% of a person’s income before taxes or anything else comes out. The Bible says we can take the promises of God to the bank. When we bring our first and best back to God, He promises to bless the rest. The truth is… we can’t outgive God.
When you give to the local church, couples are counseled; single parents are assisted; youth are mentored; and children (and families) are cared for. The end result is you make an investment in eternal things.
We know tithing is a huge step of obedience, but you’re not in this alone!
You can donate marketable securities such as stocks, bonds or mutual funds. You can also give other non-cash gifts or include Redeemer in your estate planning. For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stocks & Mutual Funds
If you are currently writing checks to the church or other ministry, and you also have appreciated stocks or mutual funds in a taxable investment portfolio, you likely have a significant opportunity to pay less tax, give more, improve your personal cash flow, and simplify your giving.
Many property owners have a heart to give but feel hindered by limited cash flow and ever-growing taxes. If you're one of them, we can help you leverage your real estate so you can give more than you thought possible.
Everyone needs a will and an estate plan, regardless of your age or phase of life. Redeemer can work with you through this process as you pass on godly wisdom to the next generation through your giving.
We know you are busy. Between paying bills, chauffeuring kids, and trying to keep up with the culture around you, giving can easily slip your mind.
The truth is, it doesn’t have to be this way. You can literally schedule your next gift in two minutes. Go ahead, give our secure giving opportunity a try.
Giving history statements can be requested anytime by emailing our accounting department at email@example.com. Annual contribution statements are also mailed to you at the closing of each calendar year. Typically you will receive these by mid-February.
