One gives freely yet grows all the richer; another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want.
Proverbs 11:24

The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.
2 Corinthians 9:6

He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?
Romans 8:32

In response to God’s boundless love for us, our natural response is to pour out our love and gratitude for Him. The Bible states in many instances that we are to be generous with the resources God gifted to us.

Our Ministry

We continue to build a ministry where all are welcome and ignited to become intentional disciples of Jesus Christ!

We want to provide more experiences for our youth and families. We want to extend our evangelizing efforts to our community. We want to help those who need our help. We want to provide the best Mass experience. We want to continue to offer programs to further our faith journey. There are many ways we want to serve — and with your help, we can be the beacon of Christian Life where all are welcome to explore their faith journey.
