We know this question matters to people and want to be forthright in all we do. To boil it down into a few thoughts: the giving is spent to fulfill the vision of the church which includes expenses for outreach, Sunday services, staff, experiences for students and kids, and day-to-day operations you might expect with any small business. The most exciting thing is that we spend only 80% of what we receive – stewardship. We save 10% for unforeseeable opportunities and we give 10% away to our mission partners both locally and abroad. Even the church tithes!
