Do I have to give money to be a member?
Membership is about baptism. Those of us who regularly receive Holy Communion, participate in the ministries of the church, and give of our resources are called “members in good standing,” but that doesn’t mean that anyone is holier than anyone else.
We understand that people are at various levels of comfort regarding financial giving, and that it doesn’t always have to do with how wealthy or poor we are. God calls us to be generous in ways that stretch us and help us grow.
We encourage all our members to make a pledge to Good Shepherd regardless of their income level. We don't distinguish between large and small amounts: elders on fixed income and children with allowances can give just as joyfully as those with traditional salaried jobs.
