Support Our Mission

2 Corinthians 9:6–7

My gift is an to someone else's prayer!

Through the gifts of our church family we reach beyond ourselves and hold the power to transform.
Just as we care for the homes that we live in, we have the joy and responsibility of caring for our spiritual home. This includes careful stewardship of our building, Sunday School, youth programs, pastors, and music ministry, while reaching out beyond our borders to offer our love and support to our neighbors near and far.

Folks give for all sorts of reasons. Here are some:

——  Make an annual pledge

Pledging an amount to be given for the calendar year allows leaders to plan the ministries of the church. The money donated may be allocated to one of three funds. The General Fund supports the upkeep of our building, our programs, and our staff salaries. The Outreach Fund aids in uplifting community members outside the church by providing relief on local, national, and international levels. The Deacons’ Fund provides confidential emergency relief to folks connected to the congregation.

——  Serve

We invite you to explore the ministries of our congregation and notice where your passion lies. Fred Buechner offers that, “The place God calls you to is the place where your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet.” Our faith is a lived faith, one that calls us into the church so that we can be more than we could be alone, and sends us out to serve in Jesus’ name.
