Because we love the Lord…we give!
It's so amazing to see God's creativity, love, and generosity on full display each and every day. To show our gratefulness, our church family willingly gives their time, service, talents, and treasures through many acts of worship. We would like to invite you to join us in obediently giving back to God. Each and every act of generosity and obedience matters and helps change the lives of others. Everyone's gifts and service are acts of worship that truly bring us all closer to our Creator!
A generous person will prosper: Whoever refreshes others will be refreshed. Proverbs 11:25
Why We Give
As a church, we believe that we are called to respond to the generosity of the gospel by giving obediently and cheerfully to advance the gospel in our community and the world. Biblical obedience 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 support.
