Why Do We Give?

“Where your treasure is, there your heart will be.”
Matthew 6:21

Mission is the church family acting together. In mission we serve others as Christ served us, making the act of giving itself an expression of our gratitude to God. We give our money, our time, and our talent, and we remember that we are called to…

  • Commit to the church wholeheartedly.
  • Cultivate a spirit of gratitude and generosity, so that through the sacrificial giving of time, talent, and treasure, the church commits its financial resources to missions.
  • Help other members to identify, develop, and use their spiritual gifts and talents in their vocations as Christ’s servants in the world.
  • Support the work of the Endowment to extend the outreach of Jesus Christ into our community and world.
