A Movement of Every Day Generosity
It’s amazing to see God’s creativity, love, and generosity on full display each and every day. Our church family generously gives their time, service, talents, and treasures through so many acts of worship, and we invite you to join us in our movement of everyday generosity!
Whether it be praising during worship, donating and transporting goods to the shelters, serving in ministries on the weekend or dropping some dollars into the offering plate. Each and every act of generosity matters and helps change the lives of others. Everyone’s gifts and service are acts of worship that truly bring us all closer to our Creator!
God has called us to serve generously. We do this when we respond to God by supporting the needs of the church, community and world – when we serve others and share our time, talents and finances. We do this when we pray for people, show love, and live each day with God’s wisdom. We do this by celebrating what God is doing—in our church and in the lives of others.
Why We Give
As a church, we believe that we are called to respond to the generosity of the gospel by giving extravagantly to the progress of the gospel in our community and world. Biblical generosity is not about meeting budget needs, it is about a rich and trusting relationship with a living God. We express our faith and love to Him by honoring Him as the source of everything we have. Scriptural giving is performed with regularity, from the first portion of all we are given, as a proportion of our income, cheerfully, and without pressure or manipulation.
What is Tithing?
Tithing is our starting place in giving. The Bible teaches us about a baseline standard for giving: the tithe (a word that literally means a “tenth”). When we give the first 10% of our income through the local church, we put God first in our lives. Tithing is an act of worship that expresses our gratitude, faith, and love for others. God also encourages us to give offerings beyond our tithe to specific projects at our local church and to other organizations and causes that we personally believe in.
