There is no command in the New Testament to give to the church. However, to keep the local ministry going, foreign missions supports, and the electric bill paid there is this encouragement:
Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. 2 Corinthians 9:7-8
There are three common ways to make an offering at Our Savior Lutheran Church.
- The most common is to add your offering to the offering plate during a service. The offering plate may be passed through the pews or sitting at the entryway to the sanctuary.
- You may mail your offering to the church. Your offering will be included at the next service. Our address is: Our Savior Lutheran Church, 2261 Lucas Street, Muscatine, IA 52761, Attention: Board of Finance

And thank you. It is no easy thing to pay your own bills let alone help your local church. Please, know that your offering is appreciated.
