Why We Give
Followers of Jesus are summoned to the adventure of generosity. We believe that God owns it all and we are the stewards of His resources. Therefore, when we give we are returning a portion of what He has entrusted to us for His purposes.
Scripture gives a lot of guidance regarding generosity. 2 Corinthians 9:7 instructs,
“You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.”
This passage encourages followers of Jesus to be proactive, prayerful and joyful in giving back a portion of the resources we manage. Giving is a relational experience with God.
As a faith family we believe following Jesus leads to a life of generosity. If you have prayerfully decided to participate in God’s mission among us, and through us, you can utilize this online giving tool or give at a gathering. May you experience the joy and adventure as you respond to God directing your management of His resources.
