Why Giving Matters
We know that finances are an important part of your life and we want you to know how thankful we are to all who are willing to donate to the Church and the different ministries we have.
We believe that God is clear in His word that He desires His people to be a generous and giving people. We believe that all that we have has been given to us by God and we are called to be good stewards of what He has given us. In Matthew 6:19-24, Jesus teaches on heavenly treasure vs. earthly treasure and that “where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” We believe that when we give generously to God and His Church, it helps keep God first in our lives while also meeting needs in the Church and our community. In addition to this, giving our resources teaches us reliance on God for His provision in our lives. Our faith is in God and not in our money.
Where Do Your Donations Go?
We know that in our world today, people like to know where their money is going to. We all invest in things throughout our life and we believe that investing in God’s Kingdom and the Church is the best investment one can make. When we invest, we want to know what we’re investing in.
