From the very beginning, God has asked us to be a tithing church–where we give away the first 10% of our church’s income before we pay our bills.
As a new Raytown church completing our 1st year, we are committed to joining in with other ministries who are already doing effective ministry in our community. This is a good opportunity for us to learn to be generous with no strings attached.
Thanks to God’s faithfulness through our generous congregation, we were able to give away over $7000 to community partners in the first year that we have been a church.
We have donated in Jesus’ name to these great organizations who are addressing critical physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs in the greater Raytown area :
