Our Approach to Giving at Coastal
With gladness, let us present the offering of our life and labor to the Lord being mindful that the earth is the Lord's and all that is in it, the world, and those who live in it.
- Psalm 24:1
Because God generously provides us with our time, creativity, talents, and ability to get resources, we are called to use our God-given resources to advance the redemptive purposes of the Kingdom…
We believe all disciples of Jesus are invited to PRACTICE material generosity. The trailhead for generosity begins by following Jesus with all of our hearts and as we are formed in Christ's image and then, with our earthly treasures.
We consider a common guidepost for sacrificial giving is 10% (a tithe) of our household income. These “first fruits” are given to support the collective, Kingdom mission of Coastal Church. At first, if 10% giving seems unmanageable, consider what you can consistently give and then, increase that amount by 1% or 2% of your total income at regular intervals.
As Jesus guides each of us, the remainder of our offerings can be given to Coastal Community, to Missional Partners of Coastal, or to other ministries of each of our choosing.
If you would like to contribute to the vocation/mission of Coastal Community Church, please make checks payable to:
Coastal Community Church
and place them in our offering baskets on Sunday mornings, or set up an auto bill-pay with your bank, or stop by our offices,
or mail to: 260 US Route 1 Scarborough, ME 04074
Coastal believes that the Church does not exist for its own benefit. On the contrary, it exists to be a demonstration of what life in God’s Kingdom (God’s hopes and dreams available here and now) looks like. For this reason, we are in process of devoting our time and energy to causes and actions that help to display the kingdom in all its beauty (check out our
). Again, we are in process of (re)distributing our money to those same purposes.
Throughout our church community's calendar year we will experiment with several practices that will (re)distribute our funds to local and global kingdom justice. Our leadership team will keep you posted on our upcoming missional-giving ventures...
