So Why Give?

God's Encouragement

Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.  (2 Cor 9:6-7)

Long Beach CRC General Ministry Fund

Support our work of bringing God’s love to our neighbors, the city of Long Beach, and beyond!  As you can see from checking out our website, many groups, classes, and serve opportunities are offered for all ages and are made possible due to the generous giving to this Fund.

In addition, we give 14% of the monies received for this Fund to support denominational causes.  We are part of a family of churches throughout North America that collectively supports ministries beyond our walls.  Individually, our church would have a difficult time funding the ministries but through the denomination our gift is able to make a difference.  We participate in sending missionaries around the world, starting new churches, training pastors and leaders, and reaching out to our neighbors through the media and programs of evangelism.  Click here to learn more.

All gifts to Long Beach CRC are tax-deductible under our 501(c)(3) status.  For your convenience, you will receive a receipt from Long Beach CRC.
