Why We Give

Does my giving really make a difference?

God repeatedly challenges us to trust Him with our finances, promising that when we give Him our first and best, He will bless the rest.

All that we have belongs to God (Psalm 24:1) and returning to Him a tithe - literally “a tenth” - is one way that we demonstrate He is first in our lives. In return, He promises to bless us.

Thank you for your gift and for making a difference.
