Generosity Matters: Giving During COVID-19

In this time of physical distancing, we are all connected as the Body of Christ. 

We are discovering what matters in our being church together. We are providing weekly email, audio, and—in the cases of our members without internet access—postal mailings, because worship matters. We are gathering weekly for sharing and prayer over the telephone, because prayer matters. We are reading and learning weekly in Bible Study together, because God’s Word matters. We are still feeding the hungry and meeting our financial commitments to social ministries such as Richmond Friends of the Homeless, the Chesterfield Alliance for Social Ministry, and Lutheran World Relief, because serving the poor matters. We have opened a special COVID-19 Relief Fund to support members, staff, and preschool staff impacted by this pandemic, because serving the least among us matters. We have developed a phone tree led by eleven “Shepherds”—congregants who check in on every member of our congregation once a week—because you matter.

To continue our shared ministry, your generosity matters!

Discovering Generosity in Scripture

Psalm 24:1-4

“The earth is the Lord’s and all that is in it, the world, and those who live in it; for he has founded it on the seas, and established it on the rivers.”

1 Timothy 6:17-18

“As for those who in the present age are rich, command them not to be haughty, or to set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches, but rather on God who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. They are to do good, to be rich in good works, generous, and ready to share.”

Romans 12:4-5

“For as in one body we have many members, and not all the members have the same function, so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually we are members one of another.”
