tithing is THE foundation of giving
The Bible teaches us a baseline standard for giving: the tithe. When we give the first 10% of our income to the church, in doing so we are saying we put God first in our lives. Tithing is an act of worship that expresses our gratitude, faith, and love for God and others. It is a spiritual discipline.

benefits of setting up RECURRING giving
Faithfully Honoring God - When you sign up for recurring give online you are deciding in advance to faithfully give. God always blesses that kind of faith! The Bible teaches that we are to honor God with the “First Fruits” of our labor (Proverbs 3:9). By setting up a recurring contribution that is scheduled to come out of your account on the day you specify, you can ensure that your First Fruits are faithfully given back to God.
Simplicity - You won’t have to remember whether you gave tithes and offerings this month. You won't have to remember mailing your tithe when you're on Summer vacation or a trip. It is streamlined, simple, and safe.
Security – We utilize an encrypted secure website for your online records, the same used by banks. Online giving is even more secure than giving with a check or cash because an electronic gift can’t be misplaced or stolen.
Focus – Instead of having to worry about writing a check and filling out an envelope during the service, you can be fully focused on the worship service, knowing that you have already given your offering.
Helping Amazing Grace – Online giving is more cost effective for our church to process, and it makes our record keeping much, MUCH easier, more accurate, and frankly, increases our tithes and offerings overall.

During Sunday worship services we have what is called a "Response Wall" at the back of the sanctuary. There are three wooden boxes on the Response Wall in which you can place your tithes, offerings, and prayer requests anytime.

Once it is set up, you may update or change your giving at any time by simply contacting The Amazing Grace office.
