Why We Give
Jesus calls us to live a life of generous discipleship. We aspire to Outrageous Generosity: sacrificial living that puts the needs of others ahead of self. We recognize no real spiritual growth can occur in our lives until we surrender every part of our lives, including our money and possessions. As his followers, Jesus expects us to be sacrificial in our giving, reflecting his ways in the things we do, the places we go and the choices we make.
Other Ways to Give
We make giving easy and provide several options for donating. Choose the method that works for you and start partnering with us to connect people to the love of Christ. You can make a one time gift or establish a pattern of regular giving.
