Giving to Our Next Step
It is our hope that all those who attend Calvary continue to move closer to God through faith in Jesus Christ. A crucial part of our spiritual growth is to become faithful stewards of all that God provides us. Becoming an increasingly generous giver is a mark of our faith and maturity. The Bible is saturated with teaching about finances and stewardship, and we strive to live our lives according to these principles. Some of which are:
Our giving is an act of worship for the glory of God
This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of God's people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God. 2 Corinthians 9:12
Our giving is a joyous work that emerges from the heart
Let each one do just as he has purposed in his heart; not grudgingly or under compulsion; for God loves a cheerful giver. 2 Corinthians 9:7
Our giving should be a first priority
Honor the LORD from your wealth, and from the first of all your produce; so your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will overflow with new wine. Proverbs 3:9, 10
Our capacity to give can grow greater, even to the place of sacrifice
But just as you excel in everything--in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in your love for us--see that you also excel in this grace of giving. 2 Corinthians 8:7
Our giving meets needs on earth and lays up true riches in heaven
Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Matthew 6:19-21

Purchase a Reloadable Gift CardPurchase a reloadable gift card for grocery stores that gives a percentage back at the Welcome Center.
Sorry, Calvary does not accept credit cards. Although many people pay off their credit cards each month, credit card debt still plagues others. Calvary feels that it's not appropriate to associate credit card interest and fees to monies given as gifts to the church.
