Q4 Giving Update
2021 Proposed Budget
Members will vote to approve this budget on November 1, 2020

Why We Give

The stewardship of our finances is a tremendous—and often overlooked—area of our lives where we can faithfully proclaim the gospel. Giving strengthens our devotion to Christ and frees us to live open-handedly with the gifts God gives us. We trust in Him and His provision instead of our perceived self-sufficiency. As people of faith, we give faithfully and generously.

Online Giving

We process online transactions as debit/credit and (ACH) E-checks. ACH (E-checks) requires your bank check routing number and checking account number, while debit/credit payments are made directly through your card. ACH payments require a set up and verification, however the fees are reduced to only $0.25/transaction. We highly encourage donors to utilize ACH giving. Find step by step online giving instructions here.

Budget and Finances

Knowing that God wants us to be faithful and generous givers, we counsel, guide and direct our church in the management of finances. Our elders review and analyze monthly financial statements to direct the mission of our church, stewarding well the resources given to the church by our people.
Each year, an annual budget is presented to the church body for review, analysis, questions and approval. The operating budget is fundamental to our accountability, transparency and integrity.
