When you give to the vision and mission of Newmarket Alliance you are tangibly, anonymously, and compassionately making a difference in someone’s life.
Marriages are restored, lives are healed, and people meet Jesus. There’s no better investment in the world.
What Did Jesus Have to Say About it?
A lot actually. Sixteen of the thirty-eight parables were concerned with how to handle money and possessions. In the Gospels, an amazing one out of ten verses (288 in all) deals directly with the subject of money. The Bible offers 500 verses on prayer, less than 500 verses on faith, but more than 2,000 verses on money and possessions.
Jesus says (Matt. 6:24) that the top competitor for our commitment to Him is money. Would anyone disagree that money is the source of much of our culture’s waking pursuit, passion, and thought-life?
Giving allows us to demonstrate that Jesus is more important to us than material things. There is no organization with more potential to change the world than the local church!
At Newmarket Alliance Church we recognize that
- Ultimately God owns everything
- You can’t “out-give” the generosity of God
- Faithful giving is a sign of a maturing believer
Automate the Important
You’ve probably learned that if you wait until you are “rolling in it” to give to the things you value, it probably won’t happen. So, whether it’s contributing to your retirement, your kid’s education fund, your mortgage (the banks tend to care), your insurance (the police tend to care) or any number of “can’t miss” payments, we tend to Automate what is Important to us. That is, we literally schedule our payments and contributions – set it and forget it. (Don’t you wish you could do that with Birthdays and Anniversaries?)
The idea of automating what we value or find important certainly applies to our relationship and obedience to God. The Bible talks about the concept of “first fruits” so for those who want to be generous as well as wise, you can faithfully and consistently give automatically. Set it and forget it.
Here at Newmarket Alliance Church, we’re so grateful for the generosity of so many people who financially support the mission and vision of the church. Online giving is safe, secure and 100% free. It’s a great way to be intentional about honoring God through generosity.
If it’s important, then consider making it automatic.
If you would like to make a regular EFT (electronic funds transfer) from your bank, contact the office where we can set you up with a personalized account number for your bank.
Other Ways to Give
what is tithing?
A tithe—which just means “tenth”—is defined as the first 10% of a person’s income. For most, this seems like an impossible. When we bring our first and best back to God, He promises to bless the rest. We can’t out-give God. We know tithing is a huge step of obedience, but you’re not in this alone! Check out the video to learn more.
Are my contributions tax deductible?
Year-end tax receipts are made available at the end of February.
What is the charitable givings deadline for annual contributions?
All contributions must be received or postmarked by December 31 in order to be included on your contribution statement for that year. Any online contributions must also be initiated by December 31.
dO YOU OFFER FINANCIAL HELP?
We’ve all needed help with our finances at one time or another. There’s no shame in that. Wisely managing our finances and budgeting are learned skills. So, if you’re feeling stuck in your finances, or just not sure where to go for help understanding it all, we might be able to help.
