WAYS TO GIVE
You can give on our website plus set up recurring giving, update your card information, and view your giving history (previous PayPal giving will not be displayed). Here’s how to get started: If you have a smart phone and want to use the new TEXT-to-GIVE function, just send a text for any amount to 636.206.3255 and follow the instructions. It’s best to set it up on your phone first and then access the account from the website. If you already have a TEXT-to-GIVE account, you can access that account information online. Log in to your account (button below) using the email and password you entered for your TEXT-to-GIVE account. If you are not interested in using TEXT-to-GIVE, you can set up a new online giving account by clicking on the button below. NOTE: This feature works best with Firefox or Chrome and is not supported by IE or Safari. If you prefer, you can continue to give via PayPal.
God is a generous and liberal Giver. He gave us life. He gave His only Son, Jesus, to die for us. He gives us everything we need for every aspect of life. And He created us in His image — so we should give just like He does — liberally and generously. Please do not choose to go into debt in order to give. It is important to us that we support your being a good steward of the finances with which God has entrusted you. We would prefer that you refrain from using credit cards.
When you hear someone say, “It’s more blessed to give than to receive,” it’s not just a cliché — it’s true! We give because it’s great to be a blessing to others. When we give we show that we trust God will provide for us; and we put first the building up of His Kingdom, even on the most practical levels. Acts 20:35; John 3:16; 2 Corinthians 9:6
BLESSES OTHERS AND IT BLESSES YOU
You will reap what you sow. Acts 20:35; Galatians 6:7; 2 Corinthians 9:6
Disciplined, purposeful, cheerful giving releases blessing into our lives. Luke 6:38; 2 Corinthians 9:7
God delights in the prosperity of His people. Psalm 35:27
Eradicates greed and self-centeredness. God’s kind of giving is not inwardly focused. Instead it is always listening for God’s direction and looking for ways to bring blessing to others. Proverbs 22:9; Isaiah 32:8
INCLUDES TITHING (GIVING 10% OF YOUR INCOME), OFFERINGS, AND ALMS
Tithing is a duty. Your tithe belongs to the Lord and it is holy. Mark 12:17; Leviticus 27:30; Matthew 23:23
All tithes are to be brought into the storehouse — the church where you attend. Malachi 3:10
An offering is a gift above and beyond the call of duty. Luke 21:3-4
“Alms” are money or goods given to the poor. Luke 11:41; Luke 12:33; Acts 10:2,4,31
INCLUDES GOOD STEWARDSHIP
It is every believer’s responsibility to wisely and faithfully manage all his or her resources. Luke 12:42, 16:1-13; James 1:17
