When the subject of money is introduced in a church context, people can get weird. Maybe no other area of devotion to God has been more misunderstood, more abused or more ignored than the discipline of giving. The Bible is filled with stories about money. It’s clear God loves generosity. Find a person who is giving generously and you’ll discover a person who bears a striking resemblance to Jesus. When we are generous we actually reflect God’s nature to those around us.
At Browncroft, we believe that giving is an expression of worship and a normal part of love for God. We don’t want to pressure anyone into giving. But we do want to challenge you to invest your financial resources through the ministries of Browncroft. Be assured that any money given to Browncroft Community Church is used in a way to reflect our mission of Inviting People into a Life-changing Relationship with Jesus. The money you give has an eternal impact. We can influence our current generation and generations to come by giving generously to the many ministries at our church. The results reach into our surrounding region and throughout the world.

WHAT WE BELIEVE ABOUT GIVING
AN ACT OF WORSHIP &
REFLECTION OF OUR FAITH
Everything we have is God’s including our lives and our resources [Psalm 24:1, I Chronicles 29:13-14]
The giving of our resources grows out of the giving of ourselves [2 Corinthians 8:1-5, Romans 12:1-2]
Our giving should be joyful, not forced, and done with deliberate consideration [2 Corinthians 9:7]
CONSISTENT & SACRIFICIAL
Percentage giving was practiced both before and during the law era [Genesis 14:17-20, Deuteronomy 14:22-29]
The New Testament church practiced both spontaneous and regular giving [Acts 4:32-36, I Corinthians 16:1-2]
The Bible encourages equal sacrifice, not equal amounts in giving [2 Corinthians 8:13-15]
GROWS AS OUR FAITH GROWS
God’s grace toward us produces grace giving from us [Luke 12:41-44, 2 Corinthians 8:8-9]
The more we give, the more good we can do [2 Corinthians 9:6,10-11]
Increased giving advances God’s work and our faith [2 Corinthians 9:12-15]
