Giving: Sharing in God’s generosity

For Christians, giving to God’s work through the church is an act of worship and stewardship.

Through embodying Christ-like generosity, in giving our time, talents, and treasure, we recognise and respond to the truth that God provides us with all we need. Christian generosity starts with Jesus - ‘who, though he was rich, yet for our sakes he became poor, that we, through his poverty, might become rich.’ (2 Corinthians

Financial support for church planting brings you into partnership in the gospel with our generous God, and with our church planting team, in spreading the good news in and around Pakenham.  

Please prayerfully consider your support, as part of the Pakenham Lakeside Church community. 

Local church members and attenders

Members and regular attenders of our church are encouraged to give with the 4Ps in mind:

  • Prayerfully,

  • As a Priority,

  • Proportionately,

  • Progressively.

To equip you to do this we encourage you to

  • Work through the ‘Gift of Giving’ Bible study with your partner or family

  • Fill in a ‘Secret Proportional Giving Form’

  • Prayerfully consider giving your regular offerings through direct bank transfer, Regular Electronic Giving (REG), or Credit Card Giving to support our mission. There are several benefits of this for both you and for our church. Using these methods helps you to give regularly, intentionally and proportionately. It helps you to make your offering a first-fruits of thanksgiving to God, as an expression of your response to God's generosity. It means less handling of cash for our treasurer. It ensures a steady and predictable income for the church. It helps our church to budget for giving outside of ourselves to local and global mission.
