The preferred and easiest way for you to support New Life financially is to give online. Recurring giving is a convenient way to prioritize regular and consistent generosity. Give a one-time or recurring gift.
NOTE: After you enter the amount you plan to give, please select the fund you want this to go to. The default fund is the general fund, which will go to New Life's tithes and offerings. There are also other funds for our church, school, church plants and other ministry. Click on the button below:
Giving During COVID-19:
Since our campus is shut down, you may wonder how you can still give to the church if the offering plate isn't being passed. There are two ways you can do this: Send a check to the church or give on-line. Here are the details of how these work:
1. Send a check to the church
Please send to our new P.O. Box mailing address (not physical address):
New Life Church
P.O. Box 1448
Spring, TX 77383-1448
2. Give Online
Here are the instructions:
Click on the green "Give Online" button above and below (or on our home page on the top left). On-line giving is processed through a ministry called Faithstreet.
Enter the amount you plan to give.
Select frequency (one time vs. reoccurring gift).
Select the fund you want this to go to. If you want this to go to New Life's tithes and offerings, simply do nothing. The default fund is the General Fund, which is New Life's tithes and offerings. If you would like your gift to go towards another fund (e.g. Benevolence, Building, NLCCS, etc.) then select that fund.
Select the option to pay transaction fee or not. If you select YES, you will be charged a small fee on top of your gift but 100% of your gift will then go to the church. If you select NO, the fee will be deducted from the gift.
Create an account.
Enter credit card or bank info where the funds will come from.
NOTE: There is an app that will allow you to give from your phone. The app is called "Faithstreet." Go to Google Play or Apple store and download the app. When it asks for church and city, enter:
"New Life Christian Reformed Church Spring TX"
Follow the same steps as listed above and give from your phone.
God gives us talents to use for His glory. He has also given us time and treasures, and we are called to steward all of these things. Money is one topic people aren’t too eager to hear about in church. After all, people wonder, isn’t the church just after my money? But did you know that Jesus talked about money more than he did about prayer and faith? There are about five hundred verses that talk about prayer, five hundred verses that talk about faith, and over two thousand verses that talk about our material possessions. If it was important to Jesus, we think it is important to us as well!
The Bible says that everything in this world belongs to God and that He entrusts us to steward His resources wisely (Psalm 24:1-2; Matthew 25:14-30). Jesus warned us,”For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:21). God also expects us to use our treasures:
to care for our needs and the needs of our family (1 Timothy 5:8)
to help the poor (Proverbs 11:24-25; Isaiah 58:9-11; Ephesians 4:28)
to support His Church and kingdom (Matthew 6:33)
Paul said that when we give, we should not give out of guilt or obligation, but out of gratitude. “Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver” (2 Corinthians 9:7). The Old Testament pattern of the tithe (giving one tenth of one’s income) was the norm in Scripture. We don’t read about this in the New Testament, but that is because the early believers gave generously and sacrificially, well beyond the tithe!
In light of these Biblical truths, we offer ourselves joyfully to do God’s work with loving obedience. Using our gifts, stewarding our resources, and making the most of every opportunity, we strive to do good, build up the church, and extend God’s kingdom.
In the spirit of transparency and accountability, the congregation votes each year to approve the proposed budgets of our church and school. Summary financial reports are also included each month in the worship bulletin. If you would like a detailed financial report, please contact the church office. Also, if you want to find out more about what the church’s teaching is about money and giving, please contact Pastor Andy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
