“Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” 2 Corinthians 9:7
WHY WE GIVE:
We seek to be a people who give generously, cheerfully, and sacrificially. The stewardship of our finances is one area of our lives that offers a tremendous opportunity to faithfully demonstrate and proclaim the Gospel. When we give, we acknowledge that God gives first, most, and best. Giving strengthens our relationship with Christ and frees us to live open-handedly with the gifts God gives us.
As we give our tithes, offerings, and toward the annual Compassion Offering, we get to see a glimpse of what God is doing in us, our community, and our world. As we end the year, we want to invite you to prayerfully consider three opportunities:
1. END OF YEAR GIVING
Your continued faithful giving helps to sustain the day-to-day work of ministry, pastoral care, discipleship, and spiritual formation of the people in your church community. Remember, all giving for 2019 must be received by the end of the day on December 31 for it to be applied to this year’s giving statement. Click here to give online.
2. YUKON CHURCH PLANT
Will you pray and consider coming alongside us through financial partnership for the sake of the Gospel?
Through our years of church-planting experience, we have learned that the expense of planting new congregations is well worth every penny. Loving God and loving people is our work, as established by Jesus. Multiplying Gospel communities here is our mission, and a gathering place in Yukon has become vital to the discipleship and growth of the people in this community.
Please come alongside us as we plant this church and continue the work Jesus began. To further multiply what God is already doing in Yukon, we need to raise $150,000. This will help to launch Sunday gatherings and fund everything needed for the startup of this congregation. Please select “Yukon Church Plant” from the dropdown menu when giving toward this fund.

3. CHRISTMAS EVE COMPASSION OFFERING
Alongside your monthly giving, we invite you to pray as you prepare for the annual Compassion Offering that will take place on Christmas Eve. The beauty of this offering is that 100% of it will be used throughout the upcoming year to alleviate suffering and poverty, both in our neighborhoods and in the nations. God has given to us so generously that we can do nothing less than the same.
RESOURCES ON GIVING
We seek to be beyond reproach as we walk in finances as a church. We honor your giving with faithful stewardship and ethical business practices.
