God calls us to be generous givers. The Bible teaches that God has called every believer to give regularly, generously, cheerfully, and in proportion to what he or she has been given.
Each of you must give as you have made up your mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion,
for God loves a cheerful giver. 2 Corinthians 9:7
Your financial giving supports the ongoing ministry and mission of Abiding Presence in many ways:
- Worship opportunities for over 400 people every week
- Sunday School, Bible study groups, Youth and Music programs, camps and retreats for youth and adults
- Operating costs for facilities and staff
- Mission and ministry in our Southwest Texas Synod and globally through the work of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America
Ways to Give
As an act of worship, offerings in the form of cash and checks are received during each worship service.
Contributions may be mailed to our office: Abiding Presence Lutheran Church, 14700 San Pedro Ave. San Antonio, TX 78232.
OnLine / Automated Giving
Many in today’s electronic world prefer the efficiency of electronic transactions. Abiding Presence offers a private and secure system for online giving. On line you can:
- Give any amount you choose.
- Give using your checking account, debit card, or credit card.
- Give just once or set up a regular weekly or monthly giving schedule
- Designate your giving to the general fund, a mission partner, or special project.
Making an annual pledge is a step of faith….deciding in advance to give faithfully. It helps you to be intentional about your giving as a way to grow in your faith. Annual pledges also provide the congregation with a tool for forecasting, planning, and budgeting resources. As a partner in mission, you make the ministry of Abiding Presence most effective by answering God’s call to pledge your financial treasure.
