Your generous support of Gentle Spirit Christian Church goes to provide valuable assistance to people who are truly in need. Every day we help someone conquer homelessness, hunger, addiction or unemployment. Here are some of the things we do that allow people just like you to do a little bit to help someone in need.
The Live Tithe
Cleaning out your attic, closets or storage shed? You can put unused items that are in good condition to work supporting the ministry of Gentle Spirit Christian Church via our Live Tithe, which allows you to convert gently used (or never-used) items into support for GSCC’s ministry and claim a tax deduction. Here’s how it works:
- Contact us to let us know you have an item(s) you’d like to donate.
- We’ll make arrangements for dropoff or pickup.
- We’ll mail you a letter confirming the value of the items so that you can claim the tax deduction.
It’s really that simple!
Some examples of items people have donated to the Live Tithe:
We also collect clothing, non-perishable food items, hygiene items and teddy bears for our ministries to the homeless, hungry and sick.
Teddy Bear Ministry
Every year, Gentle Spirit Christian Church collects teddy bears and stuffed animals during the Advent season and distributes them to patients in local hospitals and hospices to spread Christmas cheer and let them know they’re not alone.
To participate, you can either bring a teddy bear(s) to a church service or contact the church office to arrange to drop them off.
You don’t have to attend the Church Without Walls to support our work. We receive help from some surprising places — sometimes from people we haven’t even met yet. We’re grateful for our friends all over the world. Our work is made possible by the generous giving of people just like you. Every gift, big and small, goes to support our people-centered programs. And while we’re truly grateful for your gift of money (or time), there are also ways to support us that don’t involve money at all — some of which are detailed in these pages.
If you’d like to make some other kind of contribution to our work, please contact the church office, we’ll be happy to hear from you.
