There are no insignificant people and there are no insignificant gifts. Every gift, whether financial, of talent, or of time, is important to God and to New Providence.  With that in mind, we have several options for you to give of your gifts.

Giving to New Providence

Operating Budget

Giving to our operating budget is a gift to the ministries we support (Welcome Table, Bartlett Adult Day Out, Porch de Salomon, Habitat for Humanity, etc.).  Giving to our budget also provides a beautiful place to worship and a staff to lead our worship.  Giving to our budget supports a thriving education department for folks of all ages.  Giving to a budget is also the less than elegant fact that it turns on the lights, pays for the phones, and heats the Sanctuary on cold January mornings.

Building Fund

In 2006, we launched a capital campaign to address long overdue maintenance issues and create additional space. In the intervening years, we have invested ourselves in everything from the mundane (a new roof) to the spectacular (a beautiful community gathering space). There is still work to be done, but the first priority is to eliminate the lingering debt. Your gift to this capital campaign is extremely important because it will make an immediate impact. Let’s all do what we can. Not everyone can give a substantial amount, but every gift is significant.

Automatic Giving

You asked for a way to have your planned giving automatically transferred, so we have set up a direct debit system with Home Federal Bank. For those who don’t have a degree in accounting, that means that you fill out a form, sign it, attach a voided check, return it to the office and every month your planned giving is automatically deducted from your account and transferred to the church’s account.

Another payment option is online banking available from most banking institutions. Contact your bank to find out more information about this option and what financial information you’ll need from the church. You may also call or drop by the office should you need more information from us to get online banking set up.

If you have any questions, please contact Penny Bever in the church office (983-0182 x108), Monday through Thursday from 7:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.

If your circumstances change (you experience a cut back at work, you get a huge raise, you come into an unexpected income, …), all you need to do to change your pledge is contact Penny Bever, Business Administrator, (penny@newprovidencepres.org, 983-0182, ext. 108).

A biblical tithe is 10%.  At first, for those not used to the idea of tithing, this amount may seem staggering.  The best way to begin is to adopt a lower percentage and then increase it over time. 

Once we establish a certain percentage (for example 3-5%) as our starting point, we can then increase it by one or two percent a year until we reach the tithe.  For example, based on the household income you entered above, if you contribute:

  • 1%:   Your weekly offertory will be $     ($ per year).
  • 3%:   Your weekly offertory will be $     ($ per year).
  • 5%:   Your weekly offertory will be $     ($ per year).
  • 10%: Your weekly offertory will be $     ($ per year).

From the beginning, however, we must adopt the idea that we give a percentage of our treasure; we cannot base it on impulse, giving "a little something" from what we "have left over." Instead, our offering should represent "the first fruits of our produce" offered out of gratitude and joy for what we have received because we feel the need to "honor the Lord with our substance," because we want to show our gratitude to God for the blessings of life we have received, and because we are called to take part in Christ's redeeming work in this world.
