Own the vision!
Our primary vision, here at SeddonBC, is to love God, love people, and make disciples.
We desire to see the gospel impact the people we have the opportunity to invest in. We
desire to see those far from Christ know the saving power of Christ in a personal,
transforming way. However, in order for this vision to be carried out effectively, the
ministries of SeddonBC require several critical things: 1. We require the faithfulness of God,
for there is nothing we can do in our power apart from the power of God's grace. 2, We
require the faithfulness of our members who call SeddonBC their church home. Specifically,
this is the requirement for members to be faithful in their support through prayer,
attendance, service, and financial stewardship. 3 We require a place to minister. Pell City
and the surrounding areas are the places in which God has called, equipped, and gifted us
to impact for his glory and the gospel. Concerning SeddonBC's members, we encourage
you to faithfully support your church. Own the vision of SeddonBC through prayer, attendance, service, and financial stewardship. As communicated by our pastor, Dale Foote, we encourage all our current members, in the area of financial stewardship, to do one of three things depending upon their current financial position: 1. Support: If you are a member, and you are not currently walking in obedience to God's Word by faithfully giving a "tithe" or systematic percentage of your finances to the church in order to fund and flourish the ministries of SeddonBC, make an effort to promote the gospel through your systematic giving. 2. Sacrifice: For many of our members, you are faithfully supporting the ministries of SeddonBC and the gospel through systematic giving. Thank you for your faithfulness. However, we encourage you to consider how you might financially sacrifice more for the glory of God and the gospel, here at SeddonBC. 3. Sustain: There a many of our members who, for years, have both faithfully supported and sacrificed for the glory of God, the gospel, and SeddonBC. Thank you for your faithfulness. Continue to sustain what you are and have been doing, and may the blessings of God be poured out upon you and our church. Thank you SeddonBC. Own the vision! #LGLPMD
Why do we give?
The stewardship of our finances is a tremendous—and often overlooked—area of our lives
where we can faithfully proclaim the gospel. Giving strengthens our devotion to Christ and
frees us to live open-handedly with the gifts God gives us. We trust in Him and His provision
instead of our perceived self-sufficiency. As people of faith, we give faithfully and generously.
Determining how to give?
1. Give to be obedient to Scripture: Scripture teaches that all believers are to bring a tithe
(tenth) into the house of God that there may be adequate supply in His house. By walking in
obedience to this, God promises to pour out blessings from Heaven to those who keep His
commands. (Malachi 3:10)
2. Give proportionately to blessings received: Scripture teaches that to whom much is given,
much is required (Luke 12:48). Those blessed generously in financial ways have a greater responsibility to sow into the Kingdom accordingly.
3. Give by revelation, not by reason: Pray and ask God what he wants to do through you, and expect an answer (John 10:27, John 5:19). Don’t be frustrated or disobedient if you can’t discern how you will produce that amount. Walk by faith, not by sight (2 Cor. 5:7), and make that your commitment.
4 Ways to give:
Here at SeddonBC, there are four ways you can financially support the ministries of Seddon Baptist Church. Our prayer is that you as an individual will walk in obedience to the direction God is calling you to pursue concerning your financial stewardship. We pray in this way because we understand that God has ordained that His work be supported by His people, but we also pray in this fashion because we believe the giver when giving cheerfully, can and will receive great joy and provision when they give in obedience to the church of God. Below are the four ways to invest in God's work here at SeddonBC.
If you plan to join us here at SeddonBC for one of our weekly worship services, we hope you do, there are envelopes placed all across the campus designed for those seeking to support SeddonBC via check, cash, etc., and wish to do so via envelope. These offering envelopes can be placed in the offering plate during our Sunday morning services, placed in the two lock boxes located in each main building, and or mailed to the church via the pre-printed mailing address located on each envelope.
Have you ever made the statement, "I forgot to get cash" or "I didn't grab my checkbook" or maybe it is Monday and you are at work, and you said, "I forgot to pay my tithes yesterday?" No worries, we understand that often times in life we can find ourselves distracted from many priorities in life, so we have created the opportunity of online giving for those who simply prefer online "bill pay", forgot to "give on Sunday", or simply want to give for any reason and are away from the church. The beauty of online giving is, as the mobile app, it can be used/setup for one time donations or recurring, scheduled giving. If you are always online, this may be the best opportunity for you to support your church.
