Our Beliefs About Giving
When it comes to giving here is how we see it:
PEOPLE ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT PRIORITY
Jesus was in the people business. As a church, therefore, people are at the center of everything we do. We don't see someone in terms of their donation potential. We see all who come through the doors as fellow brothers and sisters in faith. We want everyone who comes to feel welcome.
GIVING IS AN ACT OF WORSHIP
We believe that giving is an act of worship. We don't ask people to give out of a sense of obligation, duty or requirement for membership. We believe that everything ultimately belongs to God anyway so our act of giving is simply a way to recognize and show gratitude to a gracious God who provides for all of our needs. Giving is therefore an act of worship between you and God.
THE CHURCH IS ACCOUNTABLE FOR HOW IT USES ITS RESOURCES
Since we believe that giving is an act of worship we also believe that how we handle our resources is an act of faithful service. When it comes to finances we are an open book. If you want to know something, just ask. We regularly publish reports to the congregation of our giving and expenses.
Ways you can donate:
Obviously, this is our favorite way to give. While we value everyone's gift, we value you even more. We invite you join us every week for worship.
We understand that it is not possible to attend every week, so we make it easy to give through the mail. We provide at no cost giving envelopes that are pre-addressed with your unique giving number so you can mail your gift in you know you will be away.
