Spirit of Giving

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

- Matthew 6:21

Why we give.

God is generous and so he calls us to be as well.  What we do with what God has given us shows the world where our hearts are at and helps proclaim the gospel. We want to glorify God with every area of our lives, and that includes what we do with our finances.

A Tax-Effective Way to Donate Money

Get to know more about what makes us different.

A qualified charitable distribution (QCD) is a distribution from an IRA made directly to an eligible charity, bypassing the owner of the account. Owners of individual retirement accounts who are at least age 70 1/2 can contribute some or all of their IRAs to the church to benefit not only the church, our community and also themselves.

But why would you want to do that after making contributions for years in anticipation of the day when you retire?  Because it can be advantageous from a tax perspective in a few ways.
