LBC Ukraine Appeal (March 2022)
We are currently collecting financial donations towards relief work both in Ukraine and with refugees in surrounding countries. Our church has long standing ties with mission partners, and partner organisations working in the region. Our aim is to ensure that any money given through the church reaches those who need support the most.
Initially our focus will be supporting work with Adrian & Violet in Satu Mare, supporting Gabriel Achim’s church in Bucharest. We will also initially be supporting two partner organisations: Link to Hope (who run Christmas Shoe Box appeal) and Christian Aid who are supporting refugees.
To give specifically to this appeal please used the link below and when prompted include a note saying ‘For Ukraine‘.
Lymm Baptist Church is an established and thriving Christian community serving Lymm and the surrounding area. In essence we are solely funded by members of our church family because we love what the church is doing and because we recognise that following Jesus with every part of our lives means our money as well.
We don’t give because we have to, there are no rules here, but because we want to. Our church vision shows that we are all-in with God and his mission of love and restoration for the world. Giving helps to enable Lymm Baptist Church to play its part in what God is doing. Just like committing to go to the gym to get fitter, giving enables a healthy Christian life.
People often wonder how much should I give? In general terms Christians have often seen 10% (a tithe) of their income as a guideline for giving. It’s a bit of a blunt tool, but a good starting point. What Jesus teaches about giving is actually generous-heartedness and a sharing of resources, as all we have is not really ours but belongs to God.
