Why We Give

"In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, 'It is more blessed to give than to receive.'" -Acts 20:35  English Standard Version (ESV)

At Otley Church we believe it is our duty and privilege to give back to God, thanking him for how he has blessed us. When we give, we should not look at giving "to Otley Church," rather we should remember we are giving through the church back to God and placing it in his hands to use and glorify His name. Giving is not limited to finances but can also be expressed through time and talent.
