Why We Give
Generosity makes a difference in your life. When you give it helps you to fight materialism, re-orients your heart and priorities, builds your faith, helps you to embrace contentment, and helps you walk in faith and obedience to God.
As a church, we believe living in the way of Jesus is inclusive of every area of our lives. We are taught a model of radical generosity through the Bible that extends into the area of our finances. It is our belief all we have comes from God and that we are to wisely steward all we have been given. Paul instructed the early church in Corinth to grow in generosity toward God and others (2 Corinthians 9:11). We believe this instruction was not only for the early church, but for all of us today.
What is Tithing?
We believe that radical generosity starts with the tithe. Tithe is a biblical principle meaning “tenth” that refers to the first 10% of our income. We believe this counter-cultural practice honors God, supports the work of the local church, and meets tangible needs beyond our walls. The Bible teaches that tithing is a reminder that God is the supplier of everything. It teaches us to put God first in every area of our lives. As a church, we also tithe 10% of all general fund donations to missions and other ministries outside of ourselves.
Your Gift Makes a Difference
Generosity makes a difference in the lives of others. Your gift is a blessing to others making an eternal impact in our community and in our world as people hear the life-giving message of Jesus. Your gift helps to fund local, national, and international ministries that work for the spiritual, economic, and social renewal of people that matter to God and to us.
Here are some easy ways to support our church.

Matching Gift Programs
Many employers have gift matching programs that encourage employees to donate to non-profit organizations. For every dollar an employee donates to a charity, the employer may match or even double or triple the donation! Simply ask your employer’s human resources office or benefits administrator for a matching gift form and instructions.
The same process that allows employers to make automatic payroll deductions for charitable contributions like the United Way can also be used to give directly to the church. By requesting a Payroll Deduction Form and submitting it to your company’s Human Resources Department, you can make contributions to the church automatically.
Leave A Gift In Your Will
Under current tax laws, unnecessary estate taxes are often paid by the estates of those who have died. By leaving a portion of your assets to the church in your will, you not only avoid losing a large part of your estate to death taxes, but you continue making a difference in the lives of people long after you have departed.
