In biblical times, people gave 10% of one's income for the work of the church. LWLC follows that model and gives 10% of offerings to charities consistent with our faith.
Living Word Lutheran Church incurs fees for online and text giving. Regular givers may prefer to use other methods that result in the entire gift being used for direct ministry. To ensure accurate recording, LWLC members should choose "TITHES & OFFERINGS" on the form below.
You may be able to increase giving by lowering your taxable income by using a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD). Givers over the age of 72 and 1/2 who receive a required minimum contribution are urged to consult with a tax professional about this option.

Many people of faith like to leave a gift to the church in their wills. If you have thought about designating a portion of your estate for charitable purposes and think Living Word Lutheran Church may be an option for you, please contact us.
While many people like the convenience of electronic giving, others prefer to put their offering in the collection plate. That is still an option at Living Word.

It takes a little time to set up the first time, but once you are set up, it is so convenient to text your gifts. Besides the ease of giving for donors, the fees are lower for the church.
