Generosity in Giving

Give Now

An Approach to Giving

Begin with prayer. Thank God for your blessings and ask for guidance and discernment.

Assess your income and giving. Determine your current giving as a percentage of your income.

Set your giving goal. If you are not currently tithing (giving 10 percent of your income), start with a lower percentage and then plan to increase the percentage each year, growing toward the tithe. The important thing is to begin the spiritual discipline of regular, consistent giving.

Determine your giving method. Take a look at the ways you can give and select the option that is best for both you and the church.

Worship with gratitude. Your generosity represents a commitment to God’s ministry through our church.

Why We Give

As Christians, we recognize everything we have comes from God, and we are simply sharing these gifts for God's work in the world. Through our generosity and stewardship, we demonstrate in a tangible way our love for God and our neighbors. Each week, we offer the opportunity for you to commit your tithes and offerings in support of our church's ministry and mission. We do this for three reasons:

  • All we have is a gift from God, so we believe that giving to God's work is an act of worship.
  • At Hope Church, giving is an expectation of partnership. The church does not specify how much an individual should give, but we hope each person will commit a percentage of their income and increase that amount as they are able.
  • Annual giving makes possible: worship, programs for children and youth, Bible studies, small groups, pastoral care and support, community service, and building and operational needs.

We encourage all of those who are part of our faith community to give—not out of obligation but out of a spirit of generosity.
