Giving to Bethany Lutheran Church

We Give Him But His Own

At Bethany we know that “our stuff is not our stuff!”  All that we have, all that we are, is a gift from Him.  We also know that giving is a spirit-given compulsion.   For Jesus Christ, in whose likeness we are being transformed daily, is the ultimate giver.  Your gifts fund ministry that gives people Jesus.  His words, His promises, His presence, His gifts, His comfort, His strength are given through the gifts you are now giving Him.  We thank and honor you for these gifts, because they thank and honor Him!
