Want to be involved?

Are you enthusiastic about giving to this vision, but not sure where to start?  Here are some creative ways to help allocate or free up resources so you can be a part of Reaching Forward.

Decrease

Are there things in your life you can take advantage of less frequently?  Maybe it’s fewer coffee shop runs or one less dinner out each week.  By decreasing a weekly expense, regardless of what it might be, you can save a significant amount to contribute.

Do More

Often, there are creative ways to save money.  Maybe it’s been a while since you requested a quote for an existing service (e.g., cell phone and cable service).  Perhaps you could do some extra comparison or bargain shopping to save funds.  For your kids, it could be as easy as saving extra change to give.

Delay

Are there plans you might be making that involve a financial commitment?  If so, prayerfully ask God about delaying those plans and using the extra income to contribute.

Donate

A great way to contribute is to give existing assets.  Giving assets to the church and letting the church sell them eliminates potential capital gains taxes and may increase after-tax proceeds.  Please contact the church office for more guidance before committing an asset gift in order to determine its viability for liquidation.
