Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. –2 Corinthians 9:7

Tithing and giving of finances to a church is a most personal decision and one that should be taken seriously. And there are many reasons that people give to their place of worship. As stewards of your money, we strive to use it wisely, to further God’s kingdom here on earth through constant consideration of where each dollar should go. Obviously mission and outreach are close to our hearts, but making sure we have a place of worship that remains in good condition must also be a priority.
