Giving

Giving is our response to God's instruction and provisions. Giving facilitates the proclamation of the Gospel and ministry to and through our Church family.

You may give in person during the worship services, give online or mail contributions to the church office.

Worship services

Simply place cash or checks in the offering during the collection. If you would like credit for your donation for tax purposes, be sure to include your name and envelope number on your check or use your offering envelope.  Offering envelopes may be ordered through our Finance Department.  Don't know your envelope number?  Ask the Finance Department.
