Connecting people to new life in Christ through belonging, support and hope

Your giving is an act of worship and makes possible our ministry of connecting people to new life in Jesus Christ through belonging, support and hope.

We ask our members and regular attendees to turn in an estimate of giving card each year. This enables our finance committee to set an accurate ministry budget for the coming year, and allows us to make the most of every dollar given to the church. On a personal level, the commitment card (sometimes called a pledge card) is an opportunity for you to spend time in prayer and reflection, considering what offering you would make to God through our church in the coming year.

Listed below are multiple options for your giving.

Below, we have included a sample chart with some income and percentage numbers that you can view to determine where your giving falls.


Or, if you would like to calculate not only income and percentage, but also see what percentage of your income you are currently giving, feel free to use the calculator here.

The top section of this calculator calculates percentages of your total income, making it easy to figure how much to contribute on a regular basis.  The bottom section makes it possible to determine what proportion/percentage of total income you are currently contributing through the church.
