Why We Give

The stewardship of our finances is a tremendous—and often overlooked—area of our lives where we can faithfully proclaim the gospel. Giving strengthens our devotion to Christ and frees us to live open-handedly with the gifts God gives us. We trust in Him and His provision instead of our perceived self-sufficiency. As people of faith, we give faithfully and generously.

Online Giving

We process online transactions as E-checks. This method requires your bank check routing number and checking account number. Your routing number is a nine-digit number on the bottom-left corner of a check. Do not use the routing number from a deposit slip. This may vary from your check routing number. We also accept cards as a method of payment.


Start a text message to 843-21, type any dollar amount ($15, $50, $100, etc.) and send.

Directions to give will be sent back to you. You’ll be asked to register with a card or ACH (bank account) your first time.

Don’t forget to save the number in your phone! To give again, text the same number, with the dollar amount in the message. For example, type “100” and send.
