Giving was vital and foundational to the life of the early church and it is true today. We believe that giving for a believer is not a money issue; it is a heart issue. Knowing God as the Owner and Provider of all things, we use the resources He has provided each of us to help people and accomplish the purposes He has placed before us.
YEAR END GIVING
Deadlines for Year End Giving are as follows:
Gifts put in the offering plate/dropboxes by Sunday, 12/30/18.
Gifts put in the dropboxes or brought to the Church Office by the close of business (5:00 PM) on Monday, 12/31/18.
Digital gifts (text, mobile, online, kiosk) through SecureGive must be generated before midnight on Monday, 12/31/18.
Gifts must be postmarked by Monday, 12/31/18.
You can always give in person during a worship service on Sunday or in the Church Office during the week. You can also drop your gift in one of the Giving Kiosks located in each Worship Venue.
WHY ONLINE GIVING?
You can prioritize giving in your budget. The Bible indicates that giving is to be a first and not a last or leftover matter in life. (Proverbs 3:9-10) It is easy to let our standards and intentions be compromised by the pressures of expenses and billing cycles.
You can increase your faithfulness. Have you ever forgotten your gift, left it at home, or pledged to double it in the future? Have you ever had times where you have fallen behind because of travel or other schedule interruptions? Online giving provides a way to strengthen your faithfulness.
You can help your church.
Through online giving, you expedite your gift, simplify our accounting, and strengthen our base of regular support.
You can encourage faith and faithfulness in the lives of fellow believers.
As you plan and prioritize your giving, you will lead the way for others to grow and mature in their spiritual stewardship. Being a forerunner in this new area of planned giving, you can provide personal testimony and an example for others to follow.
