Giving

Why We Give

Giving is a way to show that we trust God with our lives and our finances. Giving is meant for our benefit because sacrificing a portion of our income helps us look outside our selfishness and makes us more aware of the needs of others.  The main purpose of giving to Soma Eastside is to support the needs of our pastors and the work of our church.

Giving is an act of faith that helps us keep our priorities straight. It reminds us that we don’t own anything in this life. God is in control, and we’re only managers of what He’s given us.

6 Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. 7 Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 8 And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.  2 Corinthians 9:6-8

 


Fund the Mission

We encourage all of those who are part of our Church family to give—not out of obligation but out of a spirit of worship. God has given us everything we have, and giving back to the Church is one way to give thanks to God for providing for and blessing us.  Your gifts allow God's mission to go forward, both in our community and around the world.
