Our members work hard and sacrifice much in order to support the mission and work of the Church. All gifts are sacred, from a $5 bill dropped in the offering plate to a regular investment of tithe submitted through a standing order. Our Treasury Department prayerfully safeguards and invests the funds God’s family entrusts to the mission of the church. We know the money does not come easily, and we take our responsibility to make sure that it is spent wisely very seriously.
