Each one must give as he has made up his mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
2 Corinthians 9:7

Ways to give at Celebration
There are multiple ways for you to give at Celebration. Each method allow for God’s work to be done as you are faithful to his calling to give back.
There are several benefits to online giving for both you and our church. Some of them are. . .
FAITHFULLY HONORING GOD
When you sign up to give online you are deciding in advance to faithfully give. God always blesses that kind of faith! The Bible teaches that we are to honor God with the “First Fruits” of our labor (Proverbs 3:9). By setting up a recurring contribution that is scheduled to charge your account on the day you specify, you can ensure that your First Fruits are faithfully given back to God.
You won’t have to remember whether you gave this month or send in an offering by mail when you’re on a trip.
We utilize an encrypted secure website for your online records. Online giving is more secure than giving with a check or cash because an electronic gift can’t be lost or stolen.
Instead of having to worry about writing a check and filling out an envelope during the service, you can be fully focused on the worship service, knowing that you have already given your offering.
Tithes and Offerings
Financial giving at Celebration can generally be divided into two categories: tithes and offerings.
The Bible teaches us that we worship the Lord with our tithe, which is ten percent of our income contributed to the church on a regular basis. You can learn more about tithes here.
When we feel called to give over and above our tithe, we do so as an offering. Examples of offerings are our Impact Building Campaign, Local Missions and International Missions.
The ministry of Celebration is funded by God’s provision through the tithes and offerings of faithful Celebration members and attenders. At Celebration we honor God’s provision by exercising wise and faithful stewardship, ethical business practices, and full accountability so that the financial integrity of Celebration remains beyond reproach.
