Greetings in Christ!
Please find enclosed your report of giving for the year (200_).
We are grateful to the Lord for the way He has provided for His Church as well as each individual and family who call this their home church. God is so faithful, and the aspect of giving is one of the most puzzling to the world around us in that in giving, we are opening ourselves up to the blessings of God in a great way.
The Bible says in Malachi 3:10 – Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. This literally comes as a challenge from God to His people to “prove Him”. In other words, set aside all of the thinking of a selfish world and just take time to have faith in a God who cannot, and will not fail.
The main purpose of this report is for you to check our records with your records to be certain that this report accurately reflects your giving over this past year. I believe it also serves as a reminder that God is faithful! Yes, if there is a way your giving can help with your tax situation, please be sure to take advantage of all that you can within the parameters of legality.
Please be advised that no goods or services were provided in consideration of your gift. Please keep a copy of your receipt with your tax records.
Once again, on behalf of the church, thank you for your giving and I encourage you to continue to prove God this next year and let’s band together for the cause of Christ!
Blessings in Christ,
Pastor John Doe
