Where does the money go?

That is a great question! The answer is that it goes to operate the church on a daily basis. Your tithes and offerings pay the salaries of our great staff. It pays for the children’s and youth programs. It pays for lights, water, and all of the utilities to operate a church.

If you want to ss some major areas for giving, see the list below.

  • Donate to Our General Fund

    Our general fund is the primary place we encourage you to give. Money given to the general operating fund ensure that our ministry continues day to day, week to week, and throughout the year. This fund supports our different ministries, and all of our support operations from utilities, maintenance, and salaries. Donations to the general fund are fully tax deductible.

  • Donate to Our Capital Campaign

    Several years ago, our church was flooded, resulting in the tearing down and building of a brand new sanctuary that currently hosts our worship services. Through the process, our church entered a capital campaign to raise the money needed to build. This process left the church with a debt of around $150,000 to finish out the sanctuary. While the campaign ended, we still are collecting donations to help pay down our building debt. These donations are fully tax deductible.

  • Donate to Finishing the Race

    Finishing the Race is a designated fund that is intended to help us finish projects at the church that the sanctuary building fund did not cover. Because of the support, we have completed our Kitchen and Gathering Space with new furniture. We still need around $7,000 to install lights and cameras in our sanctuary. Donations given to this fund are tax deductible and will be used for the purposes lined out in finishing the race. When this campaign is over, any remaining funds may be used in another area as approved by the Administrative Board. These donations are fully tax deductible.

  • Donate to Church Facility Improvement

    There are many necessary projects that were not part of our budget which we incurred as part of our disaffiliation process. These projects include things like a new sign, new signage inside the building, door mats, branding, and marketing costs. This is a general fund for those wishing to make donations towards these changes. Donations will be initially used for the specified project, however, once that project is complete, or no longer applicable, funds will be used where needed for other church improvement projects. These are fully tax deductible.

  • Donate to Specific Ministries

    While we highly encourage you to make your donations to the General Operating Fund to support our ministries, it is possible to make general donations for specific ministries. Keep in mind funds given here will be used for the specific ministry, but will be used wherever it is needed within that ministry. When these donations are for fundraising, food sales, and special events, the portion of the gift for which something tangible is received is not fully taxe deductible. Speak to one of our staff if you have any questions about this kind of donation.
