Your Gifts Change Lives Here, Near & Far
We worship a generous God! Having experienced the abundance of His love, grace and provision, with joyful hearts we give our lives back to Him, knowing we can’t out-give God! When we give God our hearts, as reflected in our generosity, God pours out even more blessings, even more of His presence, and enables our giving to bless others, here, near and far!
