VOLUNTEER POSITIONS
  • Is my giving tax deductable?
    Yes, at the end of the year you'll receive in your mail a giving statement for the financial year. You can access your giving report anytime as well. You can find your giving profile here.
  • What is your preferred method of giving?
    Online giving is our preferred method because it relieves the workload on our volunteers. It's quick, simple, and you're able to immediatly access your giving record. Although any check or cash (with giving envelope) will be recorded to your giving profile. Connecting your bank account will also save our church from paying credit card processing fees.
  • Why should I give?
    2 Corinthians 9:6-7 says "Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. 7 Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver." We believe first that if you feel like you're forced to give please do not feel obligated to give especially if you're a guest of ours. However, we believe that tithing is an investment in the Kingdom since the local church is both the hands and feet of Jesus and hope of the world. We incredibly thankful for all our incredible givers who allow us to continue to share the Gospel to the world and help change lives.
