If you would like to give your gift in person, we have giving boxes next to both sets of double doors as you enter the sanctuary. 

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO GIVE BIBLICALLY?

When you give, you’re 

trusting God with
your finances

 Tithing is an Old Testament principle of giving, where God’s people would give their firstfruits (first 10% of their crops, cattle, etc. back to Him in worship. In this way they recognized that He was their provider.

In the New Testament, the focus is less on the 10%, but sowing generously into the Kingdom of Heaven through our giving (2 Cor. 9:6-8 below). Ten percent is a good starting place, and giving from there as the Lord leads you.

We’ve seen God provide abundantly in our church, and we know He will provide abundantly for you and your family when you put Him first in your finances. In fact, it’s the one area in the Bible where God tells you to test Him.

“The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.” 2 Corinthians 9:6-8 (ESV)

GENEROSITY

It’s impossible to out-give God, but you’ll never regret trying

God gives us good things we don’t deserve and could never earn, like grace and forgiveness. He gave the ultimate gift, His son, for our sins. Generous giving beyond what we think we have to give can seem irrational, ​​but when we give in faith as the Lord leads us, he takes care of our needs. God created you with a generous spirit. We want to help you embrace it by giving beyond your tithe.

We encourage giving to the General Fund above all. However, there may be instances where it is appropriate to direct your giving toward a specific designated fund. In those instances, we fully intend to use the funds as designated, but we reserve the right to use the funds as the organization may need.
