We encourage all of those who are part of our Church family to give—not out of obligation but out of a spirit of worship. Your gifts allow God's work to be done in our midst, in our community, and in the world around us.
The temptation for a church is to approach its financial needs from a fundraising perspective-to fund a budget. Our stewardship focus places more emphasis on the spiritual nature of the effort. God does not need our money; rather, we give in response to God as an act of thanksgiving, trust and joy.
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. Ultimately, the percentage or amount you give is not as important as responding faithfully and truthfully to what God has done for you.
Whether you’d like to give a single gift, schedule recurring donations, or view your giving history, you can do it all online. It’s quick, easy, and secure.
Automatic gifts create a stable cash flow and help the church to better plan its income and expenses.
I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now..." - Phillipians 1:3-5 (NIV)
God has called us to serve generously. We do this when we respond to God by supporting the needs of the church, community and world—when we serve others and share our time, talents and finances. We do this when we pray for people, show love, and live each day with God's wisdom. We do this by celebrating what God is doing—in our church and in the lives of others.
We’re passionate about reaching people for Christ—and we believe God has called us to move into new communities to do this. But we can't do it without you. That's what Living Gratitude is all about: partnering together to reach one person and one community at a time.
Generosity will change your life. But it doesn’t just change your life—we see Jesus' transforming power at work every day through the our ministries with African immigrants and their families in which we are involved. It is truly a blessing to see God’s strong hand guiding us as we share God’s love and grow deeper in our discipleship together.
