GIVING

We encourage giving as an act of worship.



Our mission is leading people in a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
We depend your generosity and your cooperation in supporting our church to spread its community and service opportunities.

What we believe about giving

Financial stewardship is an area of our lives, often overlooked, but where we can faithfully proclaim the gospel.  Giving frees us to live generously with the gifts God has given us, and strengthens our devotion to Christ and by trusting in Him and His provision instead of our seeming self-sufficiency.  As people of faith, we give faithfully and generously.


GIVING OPTIONS


WORSHIP SERVICES

During Sunday morning services we have a time of dedicating our tithes and offerings to God in prayer. This is an opportunity to give to God during the service.

 

MAIL

We can also mail our tithes and offerings. Our offering envelopes are available at the Welcome Center in the church foyer, in the pew racks in the Sanctuary or in the Church Office.  Please take time to pray, then simply place your check within the envelope, add a postage stamp and drop in the mailbox.

ONLINE

It is now possible and convenient to give online (either one time or automatically) using this website. There are several ways to give electronically, including automatic withdrawal from checking accounts, savings accounts, debit & credit cards.  Once again, consider gathering together as a family to dedicate what you give in prayer, asking God to accomplish spiritual results – especially that many would come to faith in Jesus Christ.



WHY ONLINE GIVING?

TAKING THE STEP OF FAITH

When you participate in online giving, you decide in advance to faithfully give. God always blesses that kind of faith!

 

SIMPLIFYING YOUR LIFE

Online giving is simple, easy, and also reduces post office trips, postage
costs and weekly/monthly check-writing chores.

 

HELPING THE CHURCH TO SERVE OTHERS

When you participate in online giving, you’re also helping to streamline
administrative overhead costs – thus, putting more of your dollars to
work in the ministries.


Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. - 2 Corinthians 9:7

BUDGET AND FINANCES

An annual budget is put before the church for review, questions and approval.  As a staff we strongly believe in stewarding well the resources given to the church by her people.  As a part of that process, our Stewardship Team reviews and analyzes our financial statements each month.   An independent certified public accounting firm performs a yearly audit of our finances.
