God is the Giver of all good things. The Giver of breath and life. Our Creator. We recognize that all we have is a good gift from God. And as God said to Abraham and Sarah, God says to us, “You are blessed to be a blessing.”
Generosity is a “fruit of the Spirit of God”, a sign that God is alive in us. (Galatians 5:22-23). To be generous is to be like Jesus. Our generosity toward others begins with a recognition of God’s generosity toward us, and that it all belongs to God. Our generosity reflects our trust in God’s continuing provision for us. Generosity allows us to joyfully be part of what God is doing here on earth and for eternity. We are stewards, caretakers, intended to use what we have to bless others in the name of Jesus Christ.
We invite you to give to the mission of Jesus, to reconcile all people and the whole of creation to God and one another. Your generosity supports the ministries of our church to express God’s love and grace to all people and to care for creation.
In our worship services, we invite you to give as an act of worship — offering our best to the God who has blessed us in so many ways! Regardless of how you give, we invite you to do it as an act of worship of an amazing God.
We still receive cash and checks in worship, but also have electronic giving opportunities using your debit card, credit card, or bank account (ACH).
