One of the very best places that any of us can give is our own local church. There are several good reasons to start your giving this way. Your church directly supports you. It is also possible to see where your gifts are going. You can give more than just money to your church and these gifts are part of our heavenly bank account too.
The local church participates in almost every kind of charitable function including:
- Sharing the gospel
- Feeding the poor
And often many others as well. Our church leaders are fed and clothed by our gifts and that is a big blessing to God who calls them.
When you search for other places to give, remember that gifts to your church count too.
