Giving has and always will be an act of worship. We give, responding to what God has done in our lives.
“In all this I have given you an example that by such work we must support the weak, remembering the words of the Lord Jesus, for he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.'”Acts 20:35
Each Sunday, a plate is passed for the regular offering that goes to support the facilities, the ministries and the regular work of the church. Our worship leadership, music programs, activities for kids, technology for live streaming, newsletters and other communications, and the staff and volunteers who make it all happen are valuable parts of what makes our community vibrant and accessible. Thank you for your support!
Mission Partners and Activities
Every month we designate a local, regional or international mission focus. Each Sunday, a plate is passed for the regular offering that goes to support the ministries and the regular work of the church, and a basket is passed with 100% of that offering going to the mission. Additionally, we often collect items to support local ministries such as food for the CAP Agency food shelf, or gloves for local elementary school. 2023 mission giving includes: Southern Valley Alliance ($1,295), Emma Norton –Restoring Waters Campaign ($1,055.25), CAP Food Shelf ($1,372), United Methodist Committee on Relief-disaster recovery ($2,130), Annual Conference Love Offering for programs assisting with mental health ($1,711.21), Reconciling Ministries Network ($1,028), CAP School Supplies Drive ($1,378), Sleep in Heavenly Peace ($1,253), ROCK , Feed My Starving Children, , school supplies drive, and Holiday Project, Sleep in Heavenly Peace ($1,253) Simpson Housing ($1,173), ROCK ($1,196), Feed My Starving Children ($), and Loaves and Fishes ($).
Strong Mission Trip to Costa Rica
Since 2018, we have helped organize groups to serve at Strong Missions in Costa Rica. We help local partners in Costa Rica build schools, improve playgrounds, help serve meals, provide VBS style programming for kids on school break, and expand other work already being done to help impoverished communities move forward. This is a hands-on effort, involving painting, building, digging, hauling, and much more while also learning from the communities we serve. Our next trip is scheduled for March 30-April 6, 2024! To find out more about how to support or participate in this trip, contact us.
