··· GIVE ···
We consider giving a form of worship to the Lord, which is why we receive these offerings during our Sunday services. We are not under compulsion to give; rather, we should cheerfully offer what God has placed on our hearts. We all play a cheerful and generous part to support our church through our giving! We also offer an online giving option (see below).

"Now concerning the collection for the saints: as I directed the churches of Galatia, so you also are to do. On the first day of every week, each of you is to put something aside and store it up, as he may prosper, so that there will be no collecting when I come." -1 Corinthians 16:1-2
"The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work. For the ministry of this service is not only supplying the needs of the saints but is also overflowing in many thanksgivings to God." -2 Corinthians 9:6-8, 12
As Christians, we give because of the grace that God has given us. The Bible describes this “grace giving” as being:
- Generous (2 Corinthians 8:2)
- Willful (2 Corinthians 8:3)
- God-directed (2 Corinthians 8:5)
- Shared (2 Corinthians 8:6)
- Active (2 Corinthians 8:7)
- Love-motivated (2 Corinthians 8:8)
