Giving

Thank you for considering how you can support the work of Christ’s church through Peace Lutheran.  When you give to Peace Lutheran Church, you join in Christ’s mission of reconciliation occurring in the Border Region.  Peace Lutheran Church is called and sent by God to speak words of grace in daily life.  The impact of Peace Lutheran Church’s ministries ripple throughout the Las Cruces community.  Your gift will help PLC reach people you may never meet and transform lives in ways unimaginable to you today.

Where is your gift needed?

The following categories are important initiatives for Peace Lutheran Church, and we welcome you to give where you most desire to make an impact.  However, a gift to General Offering will allow PLC to use your gift where it is most needed.  You can be confident in knowing that a portion of your gift will be directed outside Peace Lutheran Church through congregational benevolence.

  • General Offering
  • Debt Reduction
  • Other

How can you be generous?

  • Worship Offerings – Gifts of money or personal checks may be given during the offering at any worship service.  Many people find this disciple of regular and consistent giving very meaningful.  These gifts will be used to support and sustain the ministry to which God is calling Peace Lutheran Church.
