Our Sunday Worship includes an offering, called the Offertory, taken just before we come to the Lord's Table. During this time, ushers collect a financial gift, and present it to the pastor, who receives it and prays for God to use it to advance his kingdom.
Worshipping God by giving a portion of one's income for the needs of the worshipping community extends far back into the Old Testament (Numbers 18:20-21), a tradition which Jesus endorsed (Matthew 23:23). Paul also connected the Old Testament practice with the practice of the New Testament church, citing the need for congregations to support those who serve the church in ministry (1 Corinthians 9:13-14). All this reflects the principle of Proverbs 3:9, “Honor the Lord with your wealth and with the first fruits of all your produce.”
Whether you give financially to Resurrection through a donation during Sunday worship, online, or by automatic withdrawal, the Offertory is the time in our liturgy to reflect on all that the Lord has given you, to recognize that all of it belongs to Him, and to remember that in worship we give ourselves to God in every way, as He gave himself in every way for us
