Contributing your time, talents, and treasures.
God has shown us through Eph. 5:8-19, Matt. 25:14-30, Mark 12:41-44 that we are to contribute our time, talents, and treasures to further the kingdom of God. We have many opportunities for you to serve God here in the local church body.
The most important contribution you can make is time. The first way that you can contribute time is by being faithful with your attendance. You can also contribute time to helping one of the many ministries at Liberty. We can always use help in the nursery, King’s Kids, God Squad, and cleaning (both the grounds and inside). If you would like to contribute time or would like to see what opportunities there are to contribute please get with Pastor or one of the deacons.
If God has blessed you with a talent you may have to opportunity to bless others with it. Whether you play an instrument, sing, landscape, paint, work construction etc. there are many opportunities for you to bless the church and/or its members. If you would like to contribute or see how you can contribute your talents please get with Pastor or one of the deacons.
Making a financial contribution is an outward expression of the gratitude and love that we have for God. We seek to worship God with all that we are and all that we have – and this includes our finances. Throughout Scripture we are instructed to give to God from the finances that He has entrusted to us and blessed us with.
God uses your tithes and offerings to provide for the many ministries of Liberty Baptist Church. We will honor your gift with good stewardship and full accountability so that our financial partnership is beyond reproach.
There are many different ways to give and God has promised to honor your commitment to Him. You can always leave cash or check in a church envelope when you join us on Sundays or Wednesdays. If you have a PayPal account, you can follow the link above. If you would like your amount to be considered anything other than a tithe just place the ministry name and amount in the notes section (for example if you are giving to more than one mission or combining your tithe and offering; Tithe: $10, Missions: $5, King’s Kids $5).
(one-tenth of our income given to the local church)
This money is given by the members of the church to support the ministry we do here in Wichita Falls, pay our bills, and maintain our property. The word literally means ten percent, and giving back this portion of our income to God shows that He’s the most important thing to us.
(giving above and beyond the tithe)
When you feel challenged by God to give beyond your tithe, that’s referred to as an offering. Whether you know of a special need in the Church, or just want to give back to God from the excess that He has blessed you with, God will always honor you when you honor Him with your finances.
