A word about giving

 

Giving is the greatest expression of Love. God is the greatest giver, who gave us His very best; His own son, Jesus Christ, who gave his life for us.

Giving is the greatest expression of our love for Jesus Christ and what is important to him – His church. Giving of our time, talents (skills & abilities) and treasures (money) provides us with an opportunity to partner with Jesus to touch people with his love in tangible ways.

Your generosity makes a difference in the lives of many.

Q. How much should I give? 
Many times giving in the Bible (Old and New Testament) is referenced in terms of percentages. A "tithe" (10%) of our income is generally a good place to start. For some, 10% sounds like a lot of money, and they choose to start at a lower percentage and increase the amount over time. Many other choose to give with radical generosity and give well above 10%. Everyoen who attends a local church should see themselves as contributor to that local body; finances is one of the wasys we can be generous. Giving, helps the mission Jesus gives us as a church and blesses the giver.
