Extravagant Generosity is practiced by our people who are willing to share and give in ways that exceed expectations and extend our ministry in unexpected places. Many give lavishly and share sacrificially, as they give in service to God and neighbors. Our practice of Extravagant Generosity is found in our teaching, preaching, and practice of the discipline of tithing. As a church we always focus on the Christian's need to give because of the giving nature of God whom we worship.
Theme Verse: "You will be enriched in every way for your great generosity." 2 Corinthians 9:11 (NRSV)
