Online Giving

Why Give?

As a church, we believe in giving freely back to God, in thanksgiving, a portion of what He has freely given to us, His children.
We are told in 2 Corinthians 9:7  Each one must do as he has made up his mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver
