A note from the Business Office

Give and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap; for the measure you give will be the measure you get back.                                           Luke 6:38

When I read this verse I picture a bag of seed that is filled to the brim and overflowing or one of those lovely hanging flower pots where the flowers are so abundant that they cascade down the sides.

That is how God gives to us; everything we have is a gift from God, our lives are overflowing with God’s gifts! Since He is so generous to us, we in turn, need to be more generous for Him. How do we do that? We do it through the giving of our own gifts that God has given us; sharing His love to others through our ministries, our worship, our educational programs, our music ministries, our caring and our outreach ministries, these are all ways of sharing God’s love that needs your support. The following are ways that you can help share God’s overflowing love through your monetary gifts:

  • On-line giving on our website, www.love-first.org
  • E-Offering (ACH) is a safe way to have your giving directly deducted from your checking or savings account – contact the Business Office for an authorization form.
  • Direct bill payment through your own bank
  • Mail in gifts to 163 E. Wheeling St., Lancaster, OH 43130

We are here to help! If you have any questions on any of the ways to give to our church please call Sarah or Jill in the Business Office at 740-653-3330.  Thank you for your willingness to share God’s abundant & overflowing love.
