In the IMI Church, we often use the term family about our community. In a family, everyone, often, contributes differently. Our church family consists of many generous people who give of their own gifts, talents, time, and resources to manage what God has given us in the best possible way. If you belong to our community, we consider you part of the IMI family.
A few years ago, we made a choice to bless others than ourselves with all the thank you sacrifices (collekt) on Sundays. This has had enormous significance for others – and brought us great joy! We still challenge each other on this by allowing all thank you victims except one to leave the house. We therefore see thank you sacrifice as something we give at the top of the regular donor service. The principle is simple: if you belong to the ward permanently, you are also invited to give to the ward permanently.
For the record: employees on finances have a duty of confidentiality on what is given by whom.
God is not after our money, but our hearts (Matt. 6, 19-24). Giving generously helps us so that we are not bound by money, makes it easier to trust in God, and allows for our money to have eternal significance.
Tithing is a biblical practice that we recommend, that is, to give 1/10 of all our income back to the house of God. Don't let this either scare you from starting and giving a smaller share, or prevent you from giving more. You are still free to give what you want, at your own discretion and ability – the choice is up to you! (2. Cor. 9, 7-8).
