Giving Calculator

Not everyone can give equally, but most can give a percentage of their financial resources. Begin with the question, “How has God blessed me?” instead of “What does the church require?” Then make the decision to return a proportion or percentage to God in obedience and gratitude. (Biblical reference: II Corinthians 8.) The challenge question is: Does God want me to give more? We have many members who give 5%, 10% or more. You can use this giving calculator to help you determine the amount that works for you.
