Financial giving provides a way for each of us to return gratitude freely to God for the many blessings that we receive. In fact, returning a portion of that which we have been given is an act of worship. Furthermore, our financial commitments provide necessary support for the ongoing ministries, missions, and special projects of the church.
Traditionally, tithes and regular offerings provide for the annual operating budget of the church (every day needs), which is our first responsibility. Each fall, the Central family is invited to prayerfully pledge our anticipated support for the year ahead. This practice helps us to plan appropriately in the stewardship of our resources.
