GENEROSITY IS THE GATEWAY TO INTIMACY WITH GOD.


Jesus said, “It is more blessed to give than to receive,” because it puts our focus on others, our dependence on God, and frees us from the “relentless pull” of materialism and greed. Biblical generosity begins with tithing – giving the first 10% of our income back to God as an offering, and saying, “I recognize all I have belongs to you. I want to give you the first and the best.”



 

90 Day Giving Challenge


Giving is meant to be joyful and fulfilling.

It isn’t rooted in guilt, self-righteousness, or a martyr complex. It’s rooted in our response to God’s lavish grace. If you haven't started tithing yet, we want to extend the 90 Day Giving Challenge to you. Begin a lifestyle of generosity by consistently giving the first 10% of your income back to God, and see how He blesses your life, relationships, and finances.

We want to help you on your journey of generosity. Sign up for the 90 Day Giving Challenge, and we’ll email you devotionals, encouragement, and resources throughout the 90 days.

ONLINE GIVING

Online giving is a secure and convenient way to give a one-time contribution, and/or on a recurring basis.  Just click "give online" below to set up a user profile for ongoing giving, or give one-time without a user profile, to any of the listed ministry funds.

HELPFUL HINTS

  • To change your expiration date, edit your payment information.

  • To enter a new credit card, cancel the current recurring donation (which also cancels future gifts) and enter the new card information with the new transaction.

  • Due to the fees imposed, we prefer that very large gifts be given by e-check, an option under the "Payment Information" section.
