Also, please read the following explanation about Offerings in the Lutheran Church

    1. What are offerings? An offering is everything that is brought to the Lord as a response to what the Lord has done in our life.(1 Cor 9:7) Financial offerings are the main way to provide support for the mission of the Church. But offerings can be done in many different ways, such as time, gifts, talents, goods, prayers, actions of love.(2 Thess 3:13)
    2. Why do we bring offerings? Bringing offerings to the Lord is not an act of bargain (“I will give so I can receive”) but it is an act of responding to God’s love. Everything belongs to the Lord (Psalm 24:1) and as I realize that he gave me everything, my offering is an act of giving back from the heart. (Dt 8:18; Prov 3:9)
    3. Who can bring offerings to God? Offerings are a response of faith from the heart of the person who trusts in Jesus as his/her Lord and Saviour. (Hebrews 11:6; Mal 3:6-10)
    4. How much should I offer? This is a personal decision, according to what you propose in your heart. (1 Cor 9:7) Our suggestion is that they would be regular (to help in the regular ministry of the congregation) and proportional/percentual (according to each person’s income).
    5. Where Does My Offering Go? When you place your offer to Hope Lutheran Church, it goes to support the Work of our congregation, which is being active in Love, growing in Christ to bring Jesus to people and people to Jesus.
