We are incredibly thankful that our church is a very generous group of people, and we believe in being good stewards of the blessings God has given us. We give 30% of our yearly budget to nonprofits, both local and global. We also spotlight certain ministries and nonprofits every month that you can support, which allows us to go above and beyond to provide for them. Our congregation is filled with kind-hearted and generous people, and it is a blessing to see how God uses our generosity to further His Kingdom.
We are an honest, authentic church, and that applies to our finances as well. We provide a financial report during our Vision Service, which happens twice a year during weekend services. We believe our congregation has the right to know exactly how we spend the tithes and offerings they so graciously entrust to us.
If you are interested in tithing, we provide several options for your convenience. We have secure boxes on tables set up throughout the sanctuary for you to put your tithe in during the weekend services. You can also give digitally through our website or app with PushPay, a secure server. However you choose to tithe, we greatly appreciate your generosity. We will prayerfully use it well to further spread the good news of Jesus in our church, to our local community, and throughout the world.
We encourage all Christ-followers to worship and serve God through following the biblical practice of tithing (regularly giving a portion of their income) to whichever church they are committed to and involved in.
Tithing reflects a grateful heart that wants to give back to God a portion of what He has given us; in reality, what is already His. Tithing is our opportunity to trust God with our finances. James 1:17 says that “every good and perfect gift is from above,” so we have an opportunity to tangibly show God He is the “owner” of our finances by giving back to Him the first of what He gives us.
Tithing is a reminder that God is the supplier of everything we have. It is also God’s personal invitation to an outpouring of His blessing in your life.
“‘Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,’ says the LORD Almighty, ‘and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it'” (Malachi 3:10).
We also encourage followers of Jesus to listen and obey the Holy Spirit when it comes to generously giving offerings.
An offering is that which is freely given to the work of the local church and missions. Offerings are far more than simply monetary resources. Romans 12:1 instructs us to offer our bodies “as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God” as part of our worship.
The truth is, God doesn’t need our money. What He wants and what He values from us is a heart that overflows with gratitude and thanksgiving to the God who saved us and who gives us all things, knowing our needs before we even ask (see Matthew 6:8).
Such a heart gives generously, willingly, and cheerfully in response to the love and grace that abounds in Christ.
