"All things come of thee, O Lord; and of thine own have we given thee."
Do you remember, as a kid, your parents giving you money to buy a Christmas gift for them? It was a delight to give to them, even if they were the ones ironically funding it. We give to God similarly, remembering that anything we have--time, money, energy, etc.--came from him to begin with. When we give to the Lord, we're really giving back, and that makes our giving all the more joyful.
If you are interested in volunteering your time or skills, we'd sure appreciate your participation. You can contact our Verger, Kevin Leach (click here) to learn about assisting with music, children, setup, and plenty other opportunities.
Thank you also for your monetary contributions. We consider it a privilege to be responsible with our finances, knowing that the money we receive is your gift given to God. That's something sacred, and we endeavor to be faithful stewards of what is, in truth, his.
To give financially, you have three options:
- On Sundays, you can put a check or cash in the bright red offering basket. It is on the table in the back of the room.
- You can send a check to the parish's mailing address: P.O. Box 3372, Kirkland, WA 98083-3372. This is the address to use if you are setting up routine automated payments through your bank.
- We have an account with PayPal, giving you the option to contribute using a credit card, debit card, or a PayPal account of your own. This is a safe, secure method that can be set up for recurring payments. Simply click the button below to be taken to our PayPal page. Please note that PayPal charges a fee of 2.9%+$0.30 on each transaction; this will be removed from your contribution, and Advent Anglican will receive the balance.
Your financial contributions are tax-deductible, as Advent Anglican is a registered nonprofit. All contributors will receive a year-end giving statement for tax purposes. Also, our parish budget is available for any to see; simply request a copy.
