GIVING IS AN ACT OF WORSHIP
At Sun Valley Church, we see our giving as an integral part of our worship. Our giving is not to be a legalistic thing nor should it be done to win the affections of our God. Rather, our giving is an outworking of the overflow of our heart's worship of God, and our understanding that all things are His. We are encouraged to give generously (1 Tim. 6:18) and with the joy that comes from treasuring the news that Jesus sacrifices everything, and all that we have is His.
Our lives are to reflect a different set of priorities because of who we understand ourselves to be because of the Gospel. No longer do we see ourselves as owners but as stewards of God’s gifts towards us — the time we have on this earth, the talents and abilities that He has given us, and the resources that He has blessed us with to be His people and pursue His purposes…even the gospel itself (1 Corinthians 4:1; 1 Peter 4:10).
3 ways you can GIVE:
Every Sunday morning when we gather together, you can drop off your tithe in one of the baskets as they are passed out after the sermon. This is one of the ways we respond to the word of God in worship.
We have an online option that allows you to give one-time donations, as well as set up regularly scheduled donations to the Church. Note for first time users: you need your name and email to login and it has to match our Church records in order to work. If you are unsure of what that is please call the office at 509-965-6800.
Most banks offer a service that allows you to set up regular, automatic payments. Contact your bank for more information.
If you have any questions about this please do not hesitate to contact the Church office.
“If we do not give away our money in remarkable proportions, we have not grasped (or we are not currently remembering) Christ’s generosity in saving us. Let’s put it more starkly: You will always give effortlessly to that which is your salvation, to those things which give your life meaning. If Jesus is the one who saved you, your money flows easily into his work, his people, his causes. If however, your real religion is your appearance or your social status or personal comfort or pleasure, your money flows most easily into those items and symbols.”
