Why We Give
Giving is the practice of generosity—an expression of gratitude for all that God has abundantly given to us. It is essential to the practice of our faith.
Our giving makes it possible to have a church home to gather for worship, education, and fellowship. Our giving allows us to reach out to our community and practice love and compassion. Our giving allows us to make a positive impact throughout the world.
When we give, we participate in God’s work both inside and outside of our church walls. Every gift is important and greatly appreciated.
Ways To Give
Our annual giving allows us to demonstrate our love for God and neighbors. We are blessed to be a blessing. How we give is a matter of preference. Check out some of the ways you can give. If you have any additional questions, our Facilities and Business Manager will be able to offer assistance.
