Giving Guide

The work of the church involves a lot more than the activities during Sunday services. To enable the church to continue its work all 7-days a week, this Giving Guide has been developed to help provide you with an idea of how you might align your financial participation in support of that work. The chart is based off of your total net income adjusted for unusual expenses, such as large medical expenses, care of a parent, or a large financial expense, etc.
