How is my offering used?
At Grace, we give a portion of what God has given us back to Him, not because He needs it or requires it of us, but because we believe it is a form of worship and will ultimately lead us closer to Him. Besides the ongoing expenses of staff, facility rental, worship supplies, and equipment, your offering supports these missionaries and mission agencies:
- Evangelical Lutheran Church in America
- ELCA Disaster Response
- Feed My Starving Children (FMSC)
- Lutheran Church of Rwanda (Africa)
- Nyamata Lutheran Church in Rwanda
- Christmas Lutheran Church in Bethlehem (Israel)
- Hope 4 Kids International
Simply text your gift amount to 623-295-2484 to get started.
When you first text an amount to that number, you are brought to a URL where you will be asked to set up your information (name, address, credit/debit card, email address).
Once you’ve completed that information, the next time all you’ll need to do is text to that number and type in the amount.
If you need to change or update your card information, text EDIT to the same phone # (623-295-2484). That will remove your old information. Then text the amount you want to give to the same phone # again, and you will be asked to set up your information, just like you did the first time.
USING THE QR CODE
You simply use the camera on your SmartPhone to hover over the QR Code, and you will be linked to Shelby Online Giving. You will need to set up your information the first time you use this, but once you’ve done that, the only time you will need to do anything is if your credit card on file expires.

Tax-free IRA withdrawals for charity
Anyone over 70-1/2 may take tax-free distributions of up to $100,000 from a traditional IRA if the money is distributed directly to an eligible charity. While retirees can’t also take a deduction for that contribution, the money won’t count as income. So it won’t hurt when it comes to other taxes, such as those imposed on Social Security benefits when income exceeds a certain level.
Those contributions would be directed to:
Community of Grace Lutheran Church (Fed ID #20-2336497)
10561 W Pinnacle Peak Rd
Peoria AZ 85383
