Conducted properly, giving benefits both giver and receiver. This is not a uniquely Christian principle.
However, the Christian’s giving is set against a much richer backdrop: that of the Giver of all things, including our talents, our health, our salvation, and our very existence. The Christian gives in recognition of what has been given to us. We give not boastfully or out of self-interest, but out of gratitude for what God has done for us and that He has graciously called us to participate in His Kingdom work.
We do not labor in this work alone. In His providence, God has also given us Christian community for the furtherance of his Kingdom. At Delaware County Christian School, we strive to advance God’s Kingdom by being a community of cheerful givers, not merely through our finances but through all the talents and resources with which God has blessed us.
In this work, we are guided by 2 Corinthians 9:6-7, which reads: “Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” As a staff, we strive to develop a culture of cheerful giving at DC. We invite members of our community to participate in Kingdom work by supporting DC, but we do not compel individuals and families to give. Instead, we have faith that the Lord will fulfill His purposes in His timing at DC.
If you would like to join this community of givers or renew your support for DC, please contact Carter Skeel, Director of Development, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 610-353-6522 x2212.
