Why We Give

Giving to support the financial needs of our church is one way to express our faith in God and our gratitude for how He provides our needs. In fact, giving is an act of worship.

Although we often say we are giving to our church, the reality is that whatever we give is the biblical act of giving a portion of what God has allowed us to accumulate back to Him.

The Bible has a great deal to say about finances, including tithes and offerings to the local church. The following Scripture references may be helpful as you and your family decide how God is leading you to worship Him through giving.

Malachi 3:10

2 Corinthians 9:7

Proverbs 3:9

Luke 6:39

I Chronicles 29:14

Budget and Finance

In the interest of accountability, transparency, and integrity, an annual Ministry Plan is developed and presented to the church body each year for review, questions, and approval. Once approved, this Ministry Plan serves as the budget for the upcoming year. Also, Financial Reports are presented at regular business meetings.
