Why We Give

The stewardship of our finances is a tremendous—and often overlooked—area of our lives where we can faithfully proclaim the gospel. Giving strengthens our devotion to Christ and frees us to live open-handedly with the gifts God gives us. We trust in Him and His provision instead of our perceived self-sufficiency. As people of faith, we give faithfully and generously.
The Bible makes clear that we are to honor God in all things, giving cheerfully of the resources he has entrusted to us. We call this kind of giving “stewardship.” (Proverbs 3:9; 2 Corinthians 9:7). Stewardship by definition means “the responsible overseeing and protection of something considered worth caring for and preserving.” We support this concept of stewardship by offering you several ways to give.

In-Person Giving

We take an offering at each Sunday gathering. Due to COVID-19, we are not passing an offering plate. Members can give offerings by placing them in the offering box located near the entrance to the Sanctuary.

By Mail Giving

Gifts can be mailed to the church at 6501 South Hazel Street, Pine Bluff, AR, 71603
