Your Giving Makes a Difference
Jesus says in Matthew 6:24 that the top competitor for our commitment to Jesus is money. Giving allows us to demonstrate that He is more important to us than material things. Not having cash or check on hand doesn’t have to hold you back from giving. You can be obedient today by giving online. There is no organization with more potential to change the world than the local church!
By giving to a local church, your money goes to investing in eternal things. We believe we change the world by our prayers, by the work of our hands and by our giving.
By giving to God’s work, you release your money back into the hands of God. It’s your way of trusting him with what he has entrusted with you. We live to give and we believe that living life “open-handed” is the best way to live. It’s good for you and it’s good for your family.
How much do I give?
Just know that this is your decision, not ours. We do believe that based off where you are at, this may change. Wherever you are at, know that God is not after your money. He is after your heart and we’d love to help you learn how to give.
First Time Gift
If you’ve never given before, why not just try it? In fact, our Dollar Club is a great place to start! Our dollar exists to encourage people to give a simple dollar. Every month, we collect those dollars and bless someone in our community. This is a great way to see God use a simple dollar to change someone.
Let’s be honest. Most of us are here. From the grocery store who asks at checkout, to that commercial showing you injured and hungry animals our hearts go out to situations that break our hearts. If this is where you are, this is great! What if you could give to something that changes eternity?
This is a huge act of trust and to be honest it’s weird. We believe that God asks Christ followers to trust him with a tithe, 10% of their income, to be given back to the local church for the purpose of worshipping God, providing for the needs of the community and committing to change the world with us.
This is a gift above and beyond a tithe to be given to a specific need. This may be a financial gift to a missionary, a ministry or organization outside of the church. This may also include a gift to the homeless or another struggling person in your life.
Spirit Led Giving
This is a gift that is in direct response to God’s command. This is the gift that is often a stretch for most people but it’s more than an emotional gift. It is a gift in response to God speaking directly into your life.
