We want to be a generous people in an exceptionally generous church. We have a bold vision to impact the world by giving half of the church’s income to people, missions and ministries outside the church walls.

Why Give?

When you give to God, you not only give people the opportunity to trust Jesus for eternal life, but also:

  • Give people food, clean water, clothing and homes
  • Honor God
  • Draw closer to God
  • Bring joy into your life
  • Invite God to bless you
  • Become more like Jesus
  • Show yourself to be faithful
  • Fulfill God’s desire to make you generous

How to Give

The church accepts standard donations to the following funds or ministries:

  • General Fund
  • Building Fund
  • Compassion and Benevolence
  • International Ministries

We offer a variety of ways to give to WoodsEdge:

  1. Online – the surest and simplest way to give consistently is through online giving. You can setup recurring or one-time payments from your bank account or credit card. Consider giving through your bank account to avoid the credit card fees charged to the church.
  2. Cash or Check – Some prefer the physical act of placing their gift in the offering basket during a worship service. You can split a check between the funds and ministries above by making a note on the memo line. Cash can be placed in envelopes available at our information desk. If you miss the offering time during the service, you may place your gift in the drop box located at the Information Desk, mail it or bring it by the office during the week.
  3. Stock and Mutual Funds - Donating stocks and mutual funds - rather than the proceeds from their sale - avoids capital gains taxes.
  4. Trusts and/or Wills - Please consider WoodsEdge in your estate planning. In addition to blessing your heirs, consider how you can a gift would be a blessing to WoodsEdge.

  • Provide people accurate and timely information about their giving
  • Teach and equip people of all ages how to steward, find financial peace, etc
  • Coordinate the giving of the WoodsEdge family to partner with effective ministries outside of WoodsEdge
  • Minimize fundraisers
  • Carry out annual reviews or audits by an independent CPA

Stewardship Declaration

I hereby acknowledge God’s ownership of me and all “my” money and possessions, and everything else I’ve ever imagined belonged to me – including my family and loved ones.  Instead of seeing myself as the ultimate recipient, I will see myself as God’s delivery boy or girl, enjoying what he intends me to keep and distributing what he intends to go elsewhere.   From this point forward I will think of these assets as his to do with as he wishes.  I will do my utmost to ask him and to prayerfully consider how he wishes me to invest his assets to further his kingdom.  In doing so I realize I will surrender certain temporary earthly treasures but gain in exchange eternal treasures, as well as increased perspective and decreased anxiety.
