"But just as you excel in everything… see that you also excel in this grace of giving."   - 2 Corinthians 8:7

If you are having any problems or need assistance with online giving, you can send an email to our finance team at


Financial giving can generally be divided into two categories: tithes and offerings. The Bible teaches us that we worship the Lord with our tithe, which is ten percent of our income contributed to the church on a regular basis. You can learn more about tithe here. When we feel called to give over and above our tithe, we do so as an offering.



While we allow the use of credit cards for tithes and offerings, we encourage you to make sure you pay your credit card off at the end of each month. Remember, you don't get in debt by giving, but by spending more than you have. It is not in our heart to see anyone living in debt.
