The death and resurrection of Jesus represent the most generous gift ever given – when the King of Glory gave up everything in order to reconcile us to God. Giving cheerfully, sacrificially, and consistently is a part of our worship. When we are generous with others, we remind one another of the great generosity of our God. If you would like to make a one-time gift or set up recurring automatic giving online please follow the link below. Thank you for your generosity.
Dear Church Family,
As we all know and are experiencing, these are unprecedented times we are living through. Everywhere we look, the COVID-19 pandemic is changing our normal routines, work schedules and life in general. It can be unsettling and cause us to feel somewhat out of sorts. As a church, this has also caused changes to our normal worship services, interactions and various ministries. But these times are also opening up new opportunities to minister to each other and reach out to our community. Even as we practice social distancing, God is at work in our own hearts and in the hearts of our friends, neighbors, co-workers and others around us. So, while we are doing ministry differently for a time, we are still firmly committed to moving the ministry forward to make and grow disciples of Jesus Christ one home at a time.
It’s in that light that we urge you to continue your regular financial support of the ministry at Life Bridge. If you are not currently giving to the financial needs of the church, we want to encourage you to prayerfully consider giving during this time and in the future. The expenses to function as a church and drive the ministry forward do not change whether we meet together physically or virtually.
There are a number of ways to give: You can give online through the church website (lifebridgewauconda.org), by mailing your offering to the church (700 W. Liberty St., Wauconda, IL 60084) or by dropping it off at the church office during office hours. At the present time, our office will be open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays from 9-12 (note shortened hours). If you use offering envelopes, please note that they fit nicely inside standard mailing envelopes.
During this time, we strongly encourage you to set up egiving since it allows you to give automatically to the church. Go to our church website. Once you are there, click on the “Give” tab, which will direct you to “Make a donation.” You will see a check-off box that allows you to give on a recurring basis.
We also want you to know that the Elder Board is monitoring the church budget closely and have decided to defer certain expenses until the pandemic is behind us.
God is still at work. People are coming to know Jesus as their Savior. We’re hearing many good stories on how God is using this crisis to open doors. This is not a time for us to draw back and retreat. The church shines best when times are dark. Let’s let our light shine so that others may see our good works and glorify our Savior.
Remember, we are live streaming our worship service this coming Sunday. You can join us through our website. The service begins at 10:30. If possible, invite someone to join you.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to any of the Elders if you have any questions.
In His Mighty Grip,
Matt Ferrin (on behalf of the Elder Board)
