At Front Range, we believe God has called us to live out contagious generosity. All throughout history, God has displayed His generosity toward us. The greatest example of His generosity is found in John 3:16
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
Because God loved, He gave. God’s love for us propelled Him to give us Jesus, and our love for God and the world around us should compel us to be generous with what we have. We believe this is one way God has called us to be more like Him and to trust Him.
We also believe generosity is contagious!
Contagious – capable of being easily spread to others: causing other people to feel or act a similar way
As we are generous with our finances, our time, our resources, and our gifts, it will cause the world around us to take notice and follow suit. Imagine if the communities of Castle Rock, Douglas County and Colorado gave generously and the impact it would make in lives of thousands of families. It can start with us!!
Levels of Giving
We believe God meets you where you are in every area of life and then loves you too much to let you stay there. As a part of that belief, we have helped define different levels of giving where people can identify where they are and then what their next step might be. We encourage every person to determine where they are in the giving process and then seek to take a next step in becoming more generous.
Nothing to Something: This is where you go from giving nothing at all, to starting the process of generosity by giving something.
Something to Significant: This is where you move from giving something to giving based on a percentage of your income. That percentage might be 2% or 7% or something else. The best part about this giving level is when you increase your income through raises or bonuses, your generosity automatically increases.
Significant to Tithe: This is the movement from giving significantly (a percentage of your income) to giving 10%. A tithe (which literally means “tenth”) is defined as the first 10% of a person’s gross income that is to be brought back to God by giving to the local church. (Deuteronomy 14:23, Proverbs 3:9-10, Malachi 3:10)
Tithe to Sacrificial: This is moving from the floor of generosity found in the Bible (the tithe) to giving above and beyond. Jesus always calls us to be willing to sacrifice everything we have for the sake of God’s glory.
