Neely & Pat

Giving to Overlake Christian Church is an opportunity to participate in what God is up to in this world - bringing heaven to earth - right here, right now! Real lives are being changed through financial faithfulness & generosity. We aim to honor God’s trust in us by using His resources wisely and for His purposes. We recognize it is our responsibility to manage the resources He provides with integrity and faithfulness. So let’s GIVE BIG Overlake and celebrate together as God multiplies what we bring.
These four values found in Scripture and modeled in the early church of Acts shape our attitude and posture towards giving:
First - giving is a priority in our finances... not an after thought.
Faithfully - we give proportionally & with consistent rhythm... not in fits and starts.
Fearlessly - we give with a heart of worship, trust & even sacrifice... not one of fear, scarcity or greed.
Freely - we give because we get to, want to & love to... not out of guilt, shame or manipulation.
"Everyone around was in awe—all those wonders and signs done through the apostles! And all the believers lived in a wonderful harmony, holding everything in common. They sold whatever they owned and pooled their resources so that each person’s need was met. They followed a daily discipline of worship in the Temple followed by meals at home, every meal a celebration, exuberant and joyful, as they praised God. People in general liked what they saw. Every day their number grew as God added those who were saved." Acts 2:43-47 (The Message)
