We believe our giving is an act of stewardship, recognizing God is the one who has given everything to us (James 1:17). He calls us to give the first 10% of our income back to the church so His work can continue around the world (Malachi 3:10). For more information, see 1 Corinthians 8 & 9 or listen to our previous messages on giving, found in the series Season of Giving and Why Give?.
Also, please do not give money you do not have. We encourage everyone to live as debt-free as possible (Proverbs 22:7), so please do not use a credit card for your What gift if it puts you in debt.
What does this cost the church?
If you would like to give in the most cost-effective way for the church, please choose the “by ACH/Bank transfer” option when giving, as those fees are lower significantly lower than the debit/credit card fees. Debit/Credit cards are charged a 2.9% transaction fee, while ACH gifts are only charged a 1% fee.
