Yes, the greatest reason for giving is gratitude to God for the gift of his Son. But we shrink the Scriptures if we only talk about our sacrifice in response to Christ’s. According to Paul, we also give to others for their good and ours. We give to glorify God. We give for our growth in righteousness, assurance of faith, and abundant joy. We give to encourage other Christians to give by our example. We give to honor our leaders and not shame ourselves. We even give cheerfully because we know God loves it when we do.
You can utilize the Faithlife giving portal for your regular tithes and offerings as well as additional gifts to the church. As with all offerings, these go into the General Budget of Grace Church Monterey Bay. There is also the option of giving to the Elder's Fund which is available for the elders to use to provide for the physical needs of the members of our church.
Click the link below to go to the Faithlife giving portal. Or you can also use the Faithlife Text-to-Give option by texting the word "Give" followed by the amount of your gift to 831-205-7141.
Any gifts given through the Faithlife Giving Portal or through the Text-to-Give option are automatically recorded and annual year end giving reports will automatically be emailed to individual givers on January 15th of the following year. If you are registered with Faithlife, you can go into your Faithlife and look at your personal giving records at anytime using your account.
If you prefer to send your offing in the old fashion way, you can mail a check to the office at:
