Brookside builds Jesus-centered homes through healthy relationships which result in Gospel-saturated communities.
Jesus is the most generous person who ever lived. He gave his life so that we might live. We give our time, talent, treasure, and testimony joyfully in response to Jesus’ generosity. All we have has been entrusted to us from God. He is the owner, and we are the managers. As we give generously to his work, we experience freedom, provision, and joy.
A Heart of Generosity
Giving cheerfully and sacrificially is a part of worship at Brookside. We give generously because God has first been generous to us. We desire to be a church marked by radical generosity.
Partner with God in what He is doing through Brookside. Your prayers, time, talents, testimonies, tithes, and offerings help fulfill our mission of building Jesus-centered homes in our communities. Christ calls his followers to work and be on mission until He returns – having a heart of generosity is doing just that.
Tithes and Offering Gifts:
General Operating Fund: Tithes provide for our general budget which support church ministries and staff. The general fund accommodates anticipated ministry expenses for Outreach, Missionary Support, Worship and Discipleship, Children, Youth, Adults, Facilities, Staff, and Administration.
Above and Beyond Gifts:
As you are led by God beyond your regular commitment, give to special funds designated to support specific projects and initiatives.
Mortgage to Ministry Fund: Help expand our reach for our communities by accelerating the payoff of our mortgage to reallocate those budgeted dollars for additional ministry opportunities. In 2019 we launched “Mortgage to Ministry”, a three-year campaign to make additional mortgage principle payments, beyond our operating budget. Our congregation has rallied to commit giving over and above our regular tithes directly toward the principle of our mortgage with individual commitments totaling $500,021 to be given by August 31, 2022. The designated funds through “Mortgage to Ministry” combined with our general operating budget have us on target for the Fall of 2023 to extinguish the mortgage debt for the 2005 facility expansion project. Reference Brookside Giving in the Weekly Guide for weekly updates.
Care / Benevolence / Emergency Assistance Fund: Aid in meeting people’s basic needs during a time of crisis by assisting with expenses such as food, rent, utilities, transportation, or counseling.
Vision Fund: Enable special capital projects above and beyond our general operating budget to facilitate building Jesus-Centered homes through healthy relationships to saturate our community with the Gospel.
Missions Fund: Support short-term mission initiatives with various Brookside partner ministries.
