Generosity effects change.
The way God changed the world was by giving his son. We want to see humanity experience Jesus so we lead the way in generosity. Giving changes lives - and for us, there is nothing greater.
Tithing is where we start.
The Bible teaches us a baseline standard for giving: the tithe. When we give the first 10% of our income to the church, we put God first in our lives. Tithing is an act of worship that expresses our gratitude, faith, and love for others. Start your Three-Month Tithe Challenge: HERE.
The local church is the hope of the world. While we impact our community individually and collectively, there is strength in numbers. As we unite as a family we are able to see greater impact through the gospel in the lives of those around us. Giving an offering to Forward helps Forward God's work through new locations, new experiences, and facilities.
People know we follow Christ because of how we show love to each other. God so loved the world that he gave Jesus. So, following his example, the way we love each other is by giving. Each of our lives have a story. Giving to Love Stories helps spread Jesus through mission work and humanitarian efforts locally as well as abroad. People don't care how much you know, until they know how much you care.
Which account do I choose?
When you give online, you'll see accounts for each area of ministry or campaign. Choose your fund (such as General Fund or Tithe) for your tithe, as well as any gifts (offering) to support the many ministries of Celebration.
Can I schedule recurring donations?
Yes, you can specify whether you want your contribution made one time, weekly, twice per month, monthly, quarterly, or yearly. You can set up as many schedules as you would like, so it is possible to give a monthly gift as well as a weekly one.
Will I still receive a contribution statement?
Yes, we will mail your year-end giving statement directly to the home address on file.
What if I change credit cards or want to adjust the date or amount of a contribution?
You can edit or delete a scheduled contribution at anytime, including the credit card, date, frequency and amount.
Is online giving secure?
We've taken steps to ensure that the giving process is safe and secure from beginning to end. All of your giving data is secured by SSL encryption. SSL is an acronym for "Secure Socket Layer", a security protocol that provides communications privacy over the Internet. It is the same technology used by banks and e-commerce companies such as Ebay.com to keep your information safe and secure during transactions.
