Connecting our giving and our hearts changes us and others. That’s God at work, and it’s why our generosity matters. As you think about the many ways in which you’ve been blessed to be a blessing we want to challenge you to consider your financial commitment to God’s Mission and Ministry in the coming year. Together, we can step more boldly into our vision of being The Connecting Church, providing hope and wholeness for all people, with specific emphasis on children, seniors and people in poverty.

Whether you make a financial commitment every year, or this is the first, please prayerfully consider how God is calling you to joyfully give in ways that change lives, including yours!
