Amazing Grace as a community of faith has committed to the biblical standard of tithing (10% giving) as a part of our commitment to evangelical discipleship under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. If you are currently not giving at the 10% level, we encourage you to commit yourself to grow toward tithing with a 1% or 2% growth commitment today. Do this in worshipful praise for the grace you receive through Christ Jesus our Lord. Join the adventure and discover tithing as a foundation for Christian abundant living.


Remember to bring small food or personal care items to church for our blessing box ministry! God bless you!

"Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity." Henry Van Dyke

See You at Church!
