The spiritual act of giving

Our giving is more than just a shared responsibility to support the ministries of the church; it is also a spiritual act of service to God. In giving, we grow to understand God as our provider and our role as stewards of what God provides for us. In giving, we are able to share our life as we give from the fruits of our labors. Together our gifts are multiplied to share the life changing power of Christ everywhere and every day.

Your gift is a spiritual act of worship and goes forth to share God's blessings with others, locally and worldwide. Thank you for serving Christ through giving!
