How Can I Express Generosity?
Pray for Others
Arch Street Presbyterian Church is a praying community. We hold on to each other through prayer even when we are apart from each other. Are there joys and celebrations you want this community to share with you? Are there struggles or concerns you are carrying? Are there needs and challenges in your family, community, and world you wish to share with God and us. Please click on the link below and share your prayer requests with us so this community may walk alongside you on your journey.
Participate in Church Activities
Worshipping with us on Sunday, joining our midweek Bible study, singing with the choir, serving with others through the ministry of our mission partners, and volunteering to be part of one of the working committees in the church are some of the ways we all can serve God and be part of our community.

Complete the Time & Talent Survey
While society often tells us “It’s your life; you can do with it what you please”, Jesus teaches us that we find an abundant life by loving and serving others. Sharing some of our time and talents with God and others through the ministry of this church is one way we can give our lives away.

Consider Percentage Giving
Whenever the Bible speaks about sharing our financial resources with God and others, it never mentions an amount. This is because God is fair. We are not all asked to give the same amount because we don’t all have the same amount to give. We don’t all have the same income. This is why the Bible encourages us to be generous by sharing a sacrificial percent of our family’s income. To discover what percent you are presently giving to God and others please click on the link below.
While society tells us to hold tightly to our money, God urges us to be gracious and generous as God has been gracious and generous to us. Giving to God and others through the ministry of this church is one way we can be gracious and generous. Please click on the link below to give to God’s work at Arch Street.
Complete an Estimate of Giving Card
Every fall members and friends of Arch Street are asked to complete an Estimate of Giving Card so the church can plan what ministry and mission goals can be accomplished in the coming year. We call this card an “estimate” rather than a “pledge” because we realize people’s incomes may fluctuate unexpectedly. If our income goes down, naturally our estimate will as well. We can give only as we have received. Conversely, if our income increases our estimate will too. Please figure out what percent of your family’s income you are presently giving, and if possible, out of gratitude to God for all God has given to you, try to grow in your percentage giving to this church next year. Then click on the link below and complete your estimate.
