Why We Give

Each of us is called to worship God with our entire life, including our time, talents, and financial resources. Your generosity makes the mission of leading people into a transforming relationship with Jesus a reality. Additionally, sharing your financial resources is an important way to worship God, the giver of all good things. When we give the first 10% of our income to the church, we put God first in our lives. The Bible gives us permission to test God in only one area – tithing. Commit to tithing and prepare to receive a blessing!

Online Giving FAQ
Is it safe to give online?
Yes. In many ways, giving online is safer than writing a check, because an electronic contribution cannot be lost or stolen.
Do I have to create an account to give?
Not at all. Through our giving portal, you can choose to log-in through your Facebook logon and set up an account or you can simply provide your name and email address.  Once you are in the portal you can select how to give with your payment information.
What types of bank accounts can I give from?
You can give online from your checking account, savings account, MasterCard, Visa, Discover and American Express.
Based on instruction from Scripture, we strongly discourage any giving that results in the incurring of debt (i.e. credit card giving that is not able to be paid off, in full, on a monthly basis).
When will contributions be taken from my account?
Contributions will be taken from your bank account or credit card within 48 business hours of the date you requested. If the date of your contribution falls on a weekend or a holiday, the transaction will be initiated on the next banking day.
Can I designate my contribution to a particular cause?
Yes. You can designate your contribution as tithes, offering, special offering, missions, etc.
