Give an Offering
We eat together, play together, cry together, and laugh together. We share our time, our lives, our homes, our work, our struggles, and our decisions. Day after day, we provide for one another, and giving to the local church is an essential expression of that provision. When you give to the local church, you sow into the only institution established by Jesus to equip you and your entire spiritual family for the work of ministry (Ephesians 4:11-16). If we provide for our earthly families, how much more should we provide for our heavenly family?
Some people have very good reasons to doubt whether the Church and its leaders should be trusted. We understand, and we make every effort to maintain financial transparency. If you have any questions about our annual budget or stewardship practices,
The Evangelical Church of Yahweh Benevolence Fund serves a dual purpose: (1) to provide financial support to needy members within Sojourn churches and (2) to issue grants to non-profit organizations serving the poor and powerless. Our God is a just and merciful God, and we get the joy of manifesting His character for the sake of those in need. The gospel reveals that God has acted graciously, generously, and sacrificially on behalf of His people, the spiritually poor and powerless. So we're passionate about mobilizing ECOY members and resources to do the same.
In the early Church, many Christians fasted two days each week, often taking the food/money they would have used and giving it to the needy, a practice known as almsgiving.
