growing in faithfulness

Giving is an expression of our faith that affirms God as our provider and His ability to supply all that we need. We trust God by giving in faith. 

Will you prayerfully consider joining us as we trust God to transform a life, a church and a community?

Commitment Card

Identify where you are in your giving and prayerfully consider what the next step in generosity may be for you. 

First Gift

2 Corinthians 8:7-15

A First Gift is just that - it marks the first time you make a contribution to the church. This is generally done in response to understanding God's love and being instructed about giving from His Word. 

Consistent Giving

2 Corinthians 9:6-8

A Consistent Giver is someone who decides to make giving a steady part of their life. 

Intentional Giving

Luke 14:28-35

An intentional Giver is someone who relates their giving to other things. This person might ask, "Why am I giving more to my cell phone provider than to God? Why am I spending more on a car payment that I do to help the poor?" This giver starts to make their giving an intentional choice that reflects how they prioritize and spend money. This may be the point of establishing a certain percentage of household income they want to give to God. 


Malachi 3

A person who tithes gives the first ten percent of their income to the Lord. This practice, which is taught in the Bible, is rooted in the belief that everything belongs to God and that the first portion of that provision is to be given back to Him in recognition of His ownership and in thanksgiving for providing for us. 

Legacy Giving 

1 Timothy 6:6-19

A Legacy Giver is someone who thinks about the long-term effects of generosity. They choose to live below their means in order to give more than ten percent of their income away. 

As you pray and discern how God would ask you to give during this time, use this gift chart as a discipleship tool - let it be something that inspires and challenges you toward greater generosity for Christ's Kingdom.
