“Not that I seek the gift, but I seek the fruit that increases to your credit.” (Philippians 4:17)
“Honor the Lord with your wealth” (Prov. 3:9)
Because God has richly provided for us, we honor Him through our giving. Giving is first a statement about the worth and significance of God. He owns it all, and any resources we have are just borrowed from Him! Giving is also used to support the mission and purposes of God through His people. We give through the local church because we recognize the church is central to God’s plan on this earth.
WHAT ABOUT ONLINE GIVING?
In our digital, paperless ages, online giving is a convenience that many people find useful.
Giving transactions are handled through a trusted, secure site that allows both church members and guests to designate gifts to the General Fund or several other funds. You can give one time or set up recurring contributions.
