In worship, on November 20th, you will receive a commitment card and we will collectively bring our cards forward, offering them to God.

As Christians, we recognize everything we have comes from God, and we are simply sharing these gifts for Kingdom work. Through our tithes and offerings, we demonstrate in a tangible way our love for God and our neighbors. At Resurrection, giving is an expectation of membership. The church does not specify how much an individual should give, but we hope each person will commit a percentage of their income and increase that amount as they are able. Through your sacrificial and faithful giving, you continue being the body of Christ sharing his love and hope with people across the world.
