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.

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.
