Stewardship

We are committed to stewarding the resources that God has shared as blessings with us on a local and worldwide level. Our church is fully funded by the generosity of members and friends. Gifts made to the church in weekly offerings or special occasions are used to maintain our property, fund our operations costs, pay our pastor’s salary, and contribute to local and global missionary efforts.

A portion of every weekly offering is designated for worldwide benevolence through the Metropolitan New York Synod. Another portion is used to provide food and other necessities to those in need in the local community and contribute toward the needs of local community service agencies.

To continue God’s work, the church needs resources.  In addition to offering envelopes, we provide electronic means of giving to easily and faithfully make donations – and give to God.

Simply Giving

“Simply Giving®” is a way to simplify and be consistent with your giving through automatic payments.  Login if you are already enrolled or go here for more information.  We encourage you to use this option as it makes better program planning possible and helps us get through seasons with lower attendance.

Smile.Amazon

Smile.Amazon.com is an Amazon.com program that allows you to easily direct proceeds to a charitable organization, for those of you who already shop at Amazon.  It’s the same website, but adding ‘smile.’ directs the AmazonSmile Foundation to donate a small portion of their proceeds.  Designate Lutheran Church of Our Savior now.  If you want to know more, we have compiled additional information for you here.
