GIVING AT FIRST
Why We Give
The stewardship of our finances is a tremendous—and often overlooked—area of our lives where we can faithfully proclaim the gospel. Giving strengthens our devotion to Christ As people of faith, we give faithfully and generously.
The Bible makes clear that we are to honor God in all things, giving cheerfully of the resources he has entrusted to us. We call this kind of giving "stewardship." (Proverbs 3:9; 2 Corinthians 9:7). Stewardship by definition means “the responsible overseeing and protection of something considered worth caring for and preserving.” We support this concept of stewardship by offering you several ways to give.
Mobile giving is also a convenient way to give. Our online giving links are formatted to work on any mobile device. You can also give from the mobile app or via text giving.
