How to Give
generous financial giving
Faith Lutheran Church is financed entirely by the generous direct financial gifts of its members and friends. We do no fundraising for the needs of the church.
Your may send your gifts to:
Faith Lutheran Church
505 East Bonita Avenue
San Dimas, California 91773
You may bring your gifts with you to worship. They may be placed in a special plate that is passed among those at worship during the service. Click here for our worship times.
You may also have your bank or other financial instution send your contributions automatically. This may be done online, or you may call them to set it up for you.
We maintain two primary funds at FLC.
Giving to the General Fund supports our ministries, administration, maintence, salaries, giving to others, etc.
Giving to the Mortgage Fund enables us to pay our $8,221.00 monthly mortgage and to keep it from becoming our ministry. Could you donate a one month mortgage payment?
How can you be a generous giver in response to the free grace of God?
We ask that you follow a Biblical model for giving:
First Fruits: The first check you write following any income should be to provide the means for building the Kingdom of God. For most of us, that will be through Faith Lutheran Church, through which we carry out our ministry.
Proportional: The amount you give should be calculated as a percentage of your income.
Growth Giving: That percentage should be growing to a tithe and beyond.
We are also able to receive gifts of stock with Pershing LLC through Thrivent Financial for Lutherans. Contact us at 909 599-3978 or at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out how to donate in this way.
There are also ways to give gifts that provide lifetime income. Gifts can take the form of assignments of life insurance benefits, assignments o certificates of deposit, transfers of property such as cash, binds and /or real estate, memorial gifts, charitable gift annuities and charitable remainder trusts. Cunsult your financial advisor to see how these gifts can also have advantages for you.
You may also remember the church in your will. All Christians can be tithers through their will and or trust. A tithe (10%) of your estate can produce a legacy gift that will continue to help serve people and introduce them to new life in Jesus Christ.
Do you have a Thrivent Financial for Lutherans financial instrument. Designate Faith Lutheran Church as the recipient of your Thrivent Choice dollars.
Thank you for your generous giving to help us conduct our common mission: to introduce people to new life in Jesus Christ that grows into enthusiastic Christian living!
