"All things come of thee, O Lord, and of thine own have we given thee." (1 Chronicles 29:14) That sentence is spoken every Sunday at St. Thomas Church. It's a beautiful way to say, "God, everything is yours, and when we give, we're not giving something that was ever ours." The blessings we all have in our lives are all from God. And we are blessed in order to be a blessing - a blessing back to God, to others, and to the world.
Why We Give
Here at St. Thomas Church, we invite all people to worship God through prayer, music, fellowship, communion, and giving of time, talent, and treasure. Because God gives love and life to us in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, we in worshipful response, give love back unto God. Scripture speaks of the giving of "first fruits" (Deuteronomy 26) as a way of presenting back to God the loving blessings that God has lovingly given us.
