Giving a gift electronically is an easy way to share God’s blessings and to support the work of the church. It is secure, convenient, a time saver, and environmentally responsible. One-time special gifts or recurring contributions can be automatically transferred from your checking or savings account, or debit or credit card and is entirely controlled by you.
Automate Your Giving
Automating your giving by setting up a recurring gift is a great way to consistently put God first in your finances. Recurring giving is easy and will take you less than two minutes to set up. Simply choose your schedule and amount to start automating your giving today.
Why Do We Tithe?
Tithing is simply the practice of giving 10% of your income to your local church. Tithing is a response to the covenant that we have with God and it flows freely from the heart. For many, giving in this manner is the benchmark for spiritual growth.
It encourages the habit of focusing on God, being better stewards of what God has given us, and empowering His ministries. Tithing is between you and God. We will never ask for your financial details.
Ways to Give
Giving Through Assets
Generosity comes in many forms, all of which help make a difference at any stage of life. Giving through an IRA, investments, appreciated stock, mutual funds, inheritance or legacy gifts, tax, estate planning, etc., are just some of the strategies in which to use your financial blessings.
