Your Money Autobiography

Often how we relate to our money and possessions is heavily influenced, positively or negatively, by our early life experiences and how money was handled in the households we grew up in. Taking time to reflect can make us aware of those influences and allow us to take steps to change any negative behaviors they may have fostered.

A Guided Prayer of
Gratitude & Faith

Thank you, God, for everything. I recognize my life is a gift from you.

As I prepare to fill out my pledge card, may this be an expression to you of my love for you, of my faith in you, of my gratitude to you.

I pray, oh God, that you would use it to make ministry possible, that others might know, love, and serve you. Guide me, I pray.

In Jesus' name,


We believe 2022 will be a remarkable year of ministry. Your giving is an expression of your faith and your love for God, and is an investment in Christ's ministry through our church. Every gift makes a difference.
