We believe that everything we have comes from God and that we have a responsibility to manage His gifts wisely. The Bible teaches us that Christians are to give freely, generously, regularly, joyfully and with the motivation of love for God and man. “Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” (2 Corinthians 9:7). As we give, we consider how to give of our resources to show our thankfulness to God and compassion for His people.
Online donations come with a processing cost that the church must pay. Help the church save processing fees by:
- Giving from your bank account rather than a credit card. This method incurs a smaller processing fee.
- Helping us cover the cost by checking the box at the bottom of the giving form to cover card processing fees.

On communion Sunday (3rd Sunday of the month) we have the opportunity to give to the Care Fund at the end of the worship service. Money from this fund goes to help people in need in our congregation and community.
