We believe that giving is at the heart of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. John 3:16 reads "God loved the world so much that He gave..." Money can be a sensitive issue in the context of the church. Yet Jesus taught about it often and He challenges us in Matthew 6:19-21 that how we steward and care for and about money is a clear reflection of our priorities — both here on earth and for eternity.
While we worship together through giving each week during our worship service, Grace also uses Pushpay for a simple, online way to give one time and recurring gifts.
As you feel compelled to give to the ministries of Grace, be encouraged in the following ways:
We believe that as we give back to the Lord it is an act of worship. Giving is an act of worship between you and God and therefore should not be done out of compulsion or guilt (Rom. 12:1; 1 Cor. 9:6-8).
As we give together, we are making possible the ongoing ministries of both the local church and those serving Jesus around the world. Those who generously contribute to Grace Church know it is a benefit to the people who walk in the doors each week and the communities where we live. A significant portion of our ministry budget each year also supports ministries around our country and around the world — so that the Gospel may be made known!

We want to be wise and faithful stewards of what God provides through the giving of His people. Our ministry budget requires the ongoing faithfulness of our church family. We do our best to work with a lean budget that reflects what we believe are God's priorities He’s called us to as His church.
We are transparent in our stewardship. Each month we provide reports of our financial stewardship to our church. Ask questions and we would be glad to explain how in all things we are seeking to use the resources God gives us through the generosity of His people for His glory and purposes.
We have a vision for more ministry among our people, in our community, and around the world. We seek to be conservative and restrained in our budgeting process each year.
