Generosity

Give Online

As a church we rely on God for His provision for all our needs. We are thankful and grateful to receive gifts to support the ministry and mission of our church. Annually, we give away 15% directly to our missions partners (globally and locally). We also set aside funding to assist individuals both inside and outside the church who are in need. When you give to us, you are giving through us!

Giving FAQs

Why do we give?

As a church, we believe that we are called to respond to the generosity of the gospel by giving extravagantly to the progress of the gospel in our community and world. Biblical generosity is not about meeting budget needs.It is about a rich and trusting relationship with a living God. We express our faith and love to Him by honoring Him as the source of everything we have. Scriptural giving is performed with regularity, from the first portion of all we are given, as a proportion of our income, cheerfully, and without pressure or manipulation.

What is Tithing?

Tithing is our starting place in giving. The Bible teaches us about a baseline standard for giving: the tithe (a word that literally means a “tenth”). When we give the first 10% of our income through the local church, we put God first in our lives. Tithing is an act of worship that expresses our gratitude, faith, and love for others. God also encourages us to give offerings beyond our tithe to specific projects at our local church and to other organizations and causes that we personally believe in.

Is it secure to give online?

Yes! We use Tithe.ly. Online giving transactions are transmitted using 256 Bit TSL/SSL and card data only touches Level 1 PCI-DSS compliant systems.
