“Just as you excel in everything else… in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness… see that you also excel in the grace of giving.” 2 Corinthians 8:7
We believe that giving financially is an act of worship. Through our willingness to give tithes and offerings, we honor God. Giving is a tremendous blessing and joy that inspires our spiritual growth and walk with God. It is God’s way of growing our faith in Him and supporting His purposes on earth – both inside and outside of the church. We encourage all who give to Christ Community to practice good stewardship. We do not encourage giving in a manner that increases your consumer debt. Rather, we encourage you to give cheerfully, understanding that it all belongs to God, and it all is meant to honor Him.

We, at Christ Community, always encourage good stewardship. We do not encourage giving that increases consumer debt. Proverbs 22:7 states that “…the borrower is servant to the lender.” We do not want people to go into debt giving to God. We offer credit card giving as an option but advise that you manage your credit card transactions wisely (i.e., paying your credit card balance off prior to the end of your monthly billing cycle).
