It's amazing to see God's creativity, love, and generosity on full display each and every day. Our church family generously give their time, service, talents, and treasures through so many acts of worship, and we invite you to join us in every day generosity!
Whether it's volunteering in kids ministry, participating in our food packing parties, or being faithful with your tithe; every act of generosity matters and helps change the lives of others. These acts of worship help us live open-handed lives, of trust in our Heavenly Father.
Especially now, with the economic challenges that have hit our world as a result of COVID-19, we must allow God to search our hearts and guide our giving.
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.
Our Annual Impact Report is a chance to keep our eye on the numbers that matter. Behind every metric is a story, so here is this year's narrative. Download the Annual Impact Report Here.
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.

God has called us to live open-handedly. That means trusting Him to provide for our needs and not holding too tightly to money or material possessions. When we live like this, we are free to respond to the needs of others and let God be God in our lives as well. When we use our time, talents and finances to love people back to God we are participating in bringing His Kingdom to earth.
"Giving is ultimately a matter of the heart; an act of love toward our Heavenly Father. Early in our marriage it was difficult to even think about giving 10% of our income. However, we've learned that being obedient to God brings blessings. We are grateful for our ability to give back and we are still growing in our faith and discovering God's plan for our lives."
