Thank you for giving to your church family!

Why do we give?

 "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 (NIV)

 

Giving is one of the key ways we worship God. Throughout Scripture, we see that God gave. As we seek to become more like Christ, we will grow in our giving. The storehouse spoken of in Malachi is what we consider the local church. By partnering our monies together, God’s work is done more effectively.

There are three main areas in which your giving helps us:

Tithes & Offerings

A tithe of everything from the land, whether grain from the soil or fruit from the trees,

belongs to the Lord; it is holy to the Lord. (Leviticus 27:30 NIV)

 

We are stewards, not owners, of what God has entrusted to us. Therefore, tithing is bringing back what is God’s to God, and He entrusts us with the remainder to use appropriately.  The Bible instructs us to bring the tithe first. Any amount above your first fruits tithe (or general tithe) is considered an offering to God. This type of giving is over and above the tithe and should be done with cheerfulness.

Building & Future Development

There are always repairs and updates needed in our facilities. Your giving helps the building stay in good condition and keeps us moving forward as a facility.

Outreach (Locally & Globally)

We have several international missionaries and local outreach opportunities through which we serve the world. Your giving helps support these efforts and people as they go to the world, and love people.
