Your tithes and offerings are vital to support the missions and ministries of our church.  


As United Methodists, we believe that giving is an act of thanksgiving and worship. Tithing is a discipline that we practice just like prayer, worship, and doing good in the world. When we tithe, we bless others and in turn we are blessed.

Tithing is the Biblical principle of giving 10% of our income to glorify God. Offerings are special gifts above and beyond our tithes.

There are many ways to give and there are many missions and ministries that need your support. Continue reading below to find out how you can support them!
