Why Should I Give to the Church?
The Bible teaches that if you’re a committed member of a Church community then you should support that church with time, prayer, service and money.
Each of you should give what he has decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
– 2 Corinthians 9:7 NIV
We urge you to pray and fully consider your commitment to serve God’s people and use the opportunity to do so. We greatly value the generous support of our people towards the work of our church.
