God's people have always been characterized by giving. In the Old Testament, people brought goats, sheep, calves and grain to God as an offering of worship. Today it is far simpler and, even theologically more sound, to give a sacrificial gift of our money since Jesus has made the ultimate sacrifice. As giving has changed through the years, we want to positively change in any way possible to extend to 1st Grace members and friends the most convenient ways possible to offer their financial gifts and worship to God!
Anyone can give to 1st Grace online and are welcome to do so through our church website! The system makes it easy to quickly transfer money from a bank account or debit card to the church safely and securely. One-time gifts can be made as well as setting up recurring withdrawals. Donations and memorials can be given either to the church's general fund or a specific project.
At 1st Grace worship gatherings, we'll continue to receive offerings from people who prefer to give by cash or check. Even in this setting, members who would prefer to transfer money electronically, may give through the church website.
Giving is an important aspect of the Christian life. Luke records that Jesus himself said, "It is more blessed to give than to receive" (Acts 20:35). We want to encourage all members to pray and give as God leads them. For those who prefer the option of donating online, the church website now offers this. Feel free to contact the church office for help and......may God bless you as you give!
