Why We Give

Stewardship is directly linked to our journey of discipleship. How we use our resources is primarily a spiritual issue, not a financial one. We acknowladge that living generously is an inseperable part of following Christ.

It is God’s intention that we grow more generous and take bigger steps in our giving as we become more aware of how richly God has blessed us in Christ.

Giving Commitment

Each year, we ask our members to commit to their gifts for the coming year in support of our church's ministry and mission. We do this because we believe all we have is a gift from God, so we believe that giving to God's work is an act of worship. The church does not specify how much an individual should give, but we hope each person will commit a percentage of their income and increase that amount as they are able. These snnual gifts makes possible the worship, programs for children and students, Bible studies, small groups, pastoral care and support, mission trips and community projects.

Memorial Giving

Memorial gifts provide a meaningful way for individuals, families and groups to witness their thanksgiving for the life of a loved one. Honor gifts are given to honor someone who is still alive. It is a celebration of one’s life at an anniversary, birthday, or just to say thanks.

To give a gift in another’s memory is a faithful expression of respect and love that goes beyond death. Your clergy staff can assist you as you plan for your family's memorial or funeral service. Memorial gifts are directed to the Memorial Committee. Memorial envelopes are provided by our Finance Office.

Forever Gifts

As a member of the church, you have committed to a journey of knowing, loving and serving Christ. A forever gift is one way of furthering your lifetime commitment and stewardship by remembering the church in your will or trust or as a designated beneficiary of another asset. This giving is called forever giving because the principal is invested and earnings leave a legacy of perpetual ministry support.
