We give as a tangible expression of thanksgiving to God, as an act of worship, and as an act of faith and trust in God. We give because we recognize that all of life is a gift from God. But we also give to invest in and make possible the ministries of our church. Nothing happens without the generosity of our members giving their time and resources. The earliest expressions of worship in the Bible did not involve singing or sermons. Instead God’s people brought an offering − some portion of their income (at the time grain, or livestock) as an expression of thanksgiving to God.


You will be enriched in every way for your great generosity, which will produce thanksgiving to God through us; for the rendering of this ministry not only supplies the needs of the saints but also overflows with many thanksgivings to God.
-2 Corinthians 9:11-12
