At Common(s) church we value generosity. This is a season in which we press into the beauty of what Jesus said, that it is better to give than to receive.
Think of the last great feast you had the pleasure to attend. Chances are, there are faces and names that come to mind whose generosity and sacrifice made the experience one of abundance. We believe the church is to be one of those faces.
Join us for the next two months as we explore the generous reality into which Jesus invited us. Our hope and prayer is that this next season will inspire us all to a new level of common giving so Common(s) can set out an amazing feast for the people of Downtown San Diego.
WATCH SOME COOL STORIES OF GENEROSITY?
God asks that we give our first and our best back to Him.
That is the principle of first fruits.
We return to the Lord 10% of what He's given us because it belongs to Him.
Check out Malachi 3: 10 NIV.
"Test me in this … and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it."
If you're not tithing already, a great way to start is through
our season of Common Giving.
It’s impossible to out-give God, but you’ll be glad you tried.
God gives us good things we don’t deserve and could never earn. When you hear us talk about abundant generosity, that’s what we mean. God created us with a generous spirit. Let's together embrace it by giving and being abundantly generous.
Our desire is to live out the heart of generosity found in the church as it began to be a movement of love and kindness to all humanity. The generosity of the church has taken care of others’ needs, helped champion the cause of other organizations carrying out good work, and also given the church the resources to fulfill its own mission in its neighborhood.
Common giving goals:
- Completion & launch of Common(s) Creative
- Preparation of Common(s) Wellness Space
- Addition of community engagement position on Common(s) Staff
- Support and giveaway to a local non-profit partnership
