Gift Plans to Consider
"A person who sows sparingly will reap sparingly, and one who sows bountifully will reap bountifully. People must give according to what they have inwardly decided; not sadly, not grudgingly, for God loves a cheerful giver." 2 Corinthians 9:6-7

We realize that not everyone can make the same size gift, but you can make the same size sacrifice that is proportionate to how God has blessed you and your loved ones. Whether you choose to make a pledge or a one-time donation, all gifts are greatly appreciated.
