GIVING

Responding to God’s grace through our finances


WHY GIVE?
PUTTING GOD FIRST

Giving is a way of putting God first in one of the most significant areas of your life: your finances!

PUTTING FAITH INTO ACTION

Giving strengthens our devotion to Christ and frees us to live open-handedly with the gifts God gives us. We trust in God and his provision instead of our perceived self-sufficiency.

INVESTING IN GOD’S VISION

When you give, you are investing in God’s purposes for his church. Our church leaders pray diligently about the priorities and opportunities for our ministry. Your giving is a means of investing in God’s future.


``Giving is a spiritual issue. By giving to the cause of Christ, we are reminded that God is the source of all we have. Through sharing of our financial resources we remind ourselves that we are called to be a ``funnel`` through which God's blessings flow. And through giving, we enable the church to fulfill its' mission: to make disciples of Jesus Christ.``

WAYS TO GIVE

WEEKEND WORSHIP SERVICES

During the weekend services we have a time of dedicating our tithes and offerings to God in prayer. You can give by cash and check in the offering plate. Gifts can be designated for a specific fund by making a comment on the envelope or check memo line.

MAIL

You can mail your tithes and offerings to the church or have your bank mail a payment using your bank’s online bill pay service. (Banking fees may apply. Please check with your bank.) Please do not mail cash contributions.
