As disciples of Christ, our giving reflects the relationship we have with God who has blessed us and has entrusted us as stewards of His gifts. When we give, we can be Christ’s light in the world, and in that giving, our relationship with God also is transformed. As we seek to develop the values of regular and intentional giving, we encourage online giving to make the process as convenient as possible. 

If you'd prefer another way to give or information on leaving a legacy, check out the options below.
