Cheerful Giving

Why we give

God is generous and so he calls us to be as well.  What we do with what God has given us shows the world where our hearts are and helps proclaim the gospel. We want to glorify God with every area of our lives, and that includes what we do with our finances. We take joy and responsibility in giving to support the work of the church in sharing the gospel with our community and the world through our missionaries. In 1 Chronicles 29:14, David reminds us that everything comes from God, and we are to give a portion back that belongs to Him. We invite you to join us in cheerful giving.

Our secure online and app giving are the safest, fastest ways you can give. They're fully digital, reducing the number of people who handle your money and the chances of fraud, which protects both you as the giver and our church.

Can I specify a purpose for my donation?
Yes. Please note, all donations go into the general church fund unless you specify a specific fund. You can choose who you donate to by clicking on the fund drop-down tab to the right. For example, if you’d like to donate to The Carpenter's Workshop, you can select them in the drop-down tab.

When will my donation process?
Donations usually process for two business days before appearing in your bank account, but this might look different if you donate on weekends or evenings. For example, if you give on Friday, your donation might not process until Tuesday. If you give after 5pm on Friday, it might not process until Wednesday.

Does giving online cost the church extra money?
Your entire donation goes to the church, and the church pays a small processing fee for the online giving service. But compared to the man-hours spent managing physical donations, online giving saves money, provides accountability, and helps you partner with us in the Lord's work in our community and beyond.

Thank You
