Sometimes people wonder how they are expected to dress at a church they've never visited before.
Since the Bible presents no dress code, aside from simple decency and Christian humility, Lamb of God Lutheran Church doesn't make any rules either.
Like most people, our members try to make their worship time at church a special time. This is often reflected in the way they dress.
But dress is a personal matter of worship before God. One may dress casually and rejoice that we have a God who accepts us as we are. Another may dress to reflect the awe and reverence we have for our Savior King.
On any Sunday at our church you may see running shoes and high heels, jeans and suits, open collars and ties. When a person dresses out of love for God, the choice of dress casual or more formal is acceptable to God . . . and us.
"When will they take the offering?" "How will it be collected?" "How much am I expected to give?" "Do they want visitors to contribute too?" These are typical worries about church offerings.
The Bible teaches that our offerings to God should reflect our belief that all we have is his gift to us. It teaches us that with our offerings we worship and honor God. Like most Christians, our members bring offerings to God through their church. Since offerings are gifts of love for God, no one dictates what each person is to give.
We pass an offering plate during the service so that our worship may include bringing gifts to God. Offering envelopes are available and keep our gifts a private matter known only to God .
We look to Christ and his love to motivate us in our giving- whether it is a child putting in coins or an adult writing out a check.
You may wish at first to learn more about our ministry before bringing your offerings to God through our church. But you are welcome to participate as your heart leads you to give.
