This is a list of websites with free resources for churches, a good demonstration that churches can be generous to share with other churches. I think it was Jesus who said: “Freely you have received; freely give.” First a list of websites dedicated to giving away free resources, and then a list of churches that produce high-quality content they use in-house and then share these resources out of their overflow and abundance:
