Giving is one of the many ways we participate in the work of Christ's kingdom; it is an important and necessary component of the life of the church! In In the OT the people had whole feasts devoted to the act of giving, bringing the "firstfruits" of the harvest to the Lord with thanks. We give with our time, with our Spiritual gifts, and with our tithes and financial offerings. What is more, we don't give out of mere duty or necessity; no, we give in joy and thanksgiving as an act of worship. As Paul puts it:
One must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.
The tithe is not only a biblical command, but a Divine blessing and a joy!
While we would still encourage our members to "bring your offering" to the Lord (Deut. 12:6), we also recognize that many of our members and supporters have different needs when it comes to giving. We therefore now offer the opportunity to give online. Simply click the button below and follow the instructions. The service we use will allow you to make one-time gifts or schedule weekly or semi-regular giving amounts. You can also give to the general fund, or to the building or deacons fund.
