How can I contribute to the work of my local church?
Sharing our belongings is a normal part of Christian life. As followers of the Lord Jesus, we want to prayerfully consider how we support the extension of his kingdom and in particular the work of the local church which is at the heart of God's kingdom purposes. We give of our time, our talent and our treasure. New Testament believers contributed to the costs of local Word ministry. They showed local and even international solidarity among believers and they supported missionaries going off to share God's Word in new areas.
Our personal situations and responsibilities are very varied and that is why the New Testament doesn't lay out a specific amount or percentage to give. Rather, we are encouraged to give joyfully and generously with wisdom.
There is an offering plate on the front welcome desk with envelopes provided.
For those who give via transfer, here is our IBAN and BIC to give in Euros to our Belgian account: IBAN: BE69 0017 4625 0378 BIC: GEBABEBB
For those wishing to give by paypal or credit/debit card, you can do that through IBC Ministries in Texas. Click through to their site and in the giving options select "Indicate specific church/ministry in notes" and then be careful to add the note "IBC Jurbise" otherwise the money will go to other churches or ministries. If you have a query do send them an email or speak with the church treasurer.
