Why We Give
We give to what we love and find great joy and fulfillment in doing so. And so, we need not be compelled to give to our children whom we love, to the institutions we prize, to the causes that speak to our hearts and our values. As followers and lovers of Jesus Christ who has charged us to seek his kingdom first and to love him above all else, giving to Him through his church is our cheerful and cherished privilege. Indeed, perhaps the best measure of what we love is found in where we spend our time, our energies and our resources which have been entrusted to us. Our gratitude to God is best expressed in our sacrificial and generous giving.
TITHES & OFFERINGS
We glorify God by expressing our gratitude through giving of our time, talents and treasures. Together, we steward God’s blessings to create opportunities for His love and mercy to be experienced in our community and around the world.
