GIVE ONLINE

It's fast, easy, & convenient.

WHY WE GIVE

The stewardship of our finances is a tremendous—and often overlooked—area of our lives where we can faithfully proclaim the gospel. Giving strengthens our devotion to Christ and frees us to live open-handedly with the gifts God gives us. We trust in Him and His provision instead of our perceived self-sufficiency. As people of faith, we give faithfully and generously.


The Bible makes clear that we are to honor God in all things, giving cheerfully of the resources he has entrusted to us. We call this kind of giving "stewardship." (Proverbs 3:9; 2 Corinthians 9:7). Stewardship by definition means “the responsible overseeing and protection of something considered worth caring for and preserving.” We support this concept of stewardship by offering you several ways to give.

ABOUT REALM™

What is Realm?

Realm is an online ministry tool designed for real time connection. It helps our church connect with you and you connect with us. If you consider yourself part of this church family, you’ll love it. Realm allows you to manage your personal information and who is allowed to see it, control your giving, and keep in touch with the groups that matter to you.


Why use Realm?

Realm strengthens church connections. Being the church doesn’t just happen at the church. Realm helps us serve you better and leads this church well between Sundays. Everyone can be connected from anywhere at any time, right from our mobile devices. It engages everyone in the life of our church by supporting the healthy relationships essential to our church’s mission. We’ll stay organized, and you’ll stay informed about all of the opportunities for fellowship. When we share life together, we will grow together.


What about my privacy?

Realm is safe, private, and secure. Your privacy is one of our greatest concerns. Realm is only made up of the people in your church, it’s not like a social network that’s open to everyone. Realm keeps your data safe and gives you control over what information you share and

who can see it.


What about giving?

Realm gives you control over your giving. Giving should be easy, and Realm places giving right in the palm of your hands. You may set up recurring gifts, view your giving history, and make changes at any time. Realm automatically records all electronic gifts and adds them to your giving record making it easy for you to give, and easy for our bookkeeper to track.
