Christ Lutheran Church of Fairfax, CA
(paypal donate button coming soon!)
First, as an act of gratitude for all that God has given each of us. Gifts of gratitude, of course, don't have to go to a church--God is active in all the world.
So, why give to the church?
To help support our ministry in this place! Your gifts help pay for necessary-but-humdrum things like salaries and building upkeep, as well as for programs and service as we live out our Purpose and Guiding Principles here in Fairfax.
But your gifts have a wider reach, as well. A portion of what we receive is sent on for the wider mission of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, to be used for ministry and service all over the United States and throughout the world. Hunger programs, health ministries, preschools, new church starts--your gifts join with the offerings of people all over the world to change lives in meaningful and tangible ways.
