giving

Giving is not merely a means to support the ministries of Emmanuel. Instead, it is first and foremost an act of worship, i.e. an offering that expresses our trust that God owns everything and has given us our lives, gifts, and resources. And thus in the Bible, offerings are always connected with worship. While online giving can still express this trust, it can also feel detached from worship, particularly when done regularly. Thus, the elders of Emmanuel encourage those who give online to still participate in the weekly offering by putting something in the basket--a dollar, a quarter, or even a blank Keeping Connected card--as representative of the rest. And remember: the "rest" is not merely our tithe but all we are and all we have.
The funds that Emmanuel receives online donations for are:
  • General Fund - This fund supports the ministries and general operating costs of Emmanuel.
  • Deacon's Mercy Fund - This fund provides assistance, as approved by the Diaconate, to meet the short-term material needs of people in our church and community, and supports the MicroMissions program.
  • Hispanic Ministry Fund - This fund supports Emmanuel’s ministry to Spanish speakers in Arlington.
  • Missions - Emmanuel is committed to helping share the good news of God’s grace in needy areas around the world.
  • Facility Fund - This fund is for capital expenses related to long-term facility needs.
  • Arlington Bridge Builder's Pandemic Relief Fund - The fund helps our neighbors who are in desperate need of assistance with essential expenses such as rent and medical bills. ABB was founded ten years ago to serve the poor in our community by a coalition of Arlington churches, which includes Emmanuel.
