giving

“On the first day of every week, each one of you should set aside a sum of money in keeping with his income, saving it up, so that when I come no collections will have to be made.” - 1 Corinthians 16:2


We believe giving is at the heart of the message of the Gospel. John 3:16 says, "God loved the world so much that He gave..." Money can be a sensitive issue in the context of church, but it is also one of the best determining factors on the disposition of our hearts, according to Jesus (Matthew 6:19).

ways to egive:

Have you ever gone out of town, forgotten your checkbook, or not had cash on you when it was time to give your contribution? Do you ever feel guilty about not "making up" the contribution you've missed? Are you tired of scrambling for a pen, or hunting down your spouse that carries the checkbook so you can give?


If you've ever paid a bill online through your bank, or gotten paid by electronic deposit, you now have the ability to give your contribution in the same way. And best of all it's secure, confidential and totally under your control.


By giving electronically, you'll not only save yourself time and headache, but you'll also help the church more accurately budget it's income from week to week.

egiving: faq


1. Why would I want to do this? How does it help me?

  • While we all have the best of intentions, sometimes we simply miss our opportunity to give.  Giving electronically eliminates all of this and helps us to honor the pledge we've made to God and His church

2. How does this help the church?

  • Our weekly contribution totals fluctuate depending on time of the month and time of year (vacations/sicknesses)
  • Giving electronically helps to stabilize the budget and allows the church to reliably predict weekly income


3.  Should I use the debit card or check option?

  • We encourage everyone to use the check option and/or automatic bank pay because it costs the church additional fees to process debit/credit card transactions


4. What kind of receipts/records will I get showing that I've given (for tax purposes)?

  • You'll receive an email whenever a transaction is made
  • You can contact the church's administrator for this information
