Our building is located on the Northeast side of Battle Creek.
Giving financially to the local church is a privilege we as believers get to participate in. We are given the opportunity to invest in all that God is doing through the ministries of this, and other churches around the world.
Followers of Christ are not required to give, because there is nothing we can do to earn God's favor. We don't give to get something from Him, we give because we get to share the gifts He's given us with the larger Body of believers.
Paul reminds us that our gifts should be given with joy, and at whatever amount a person has decided in his heart to give (2 Cor 9:7).
There are three ways you can give.
Checks can be sent to the church at:
1021 Wagner Dr
Battle Creek, MI
You can choose to give your offering in one of the two offering boxes in the foyer on Sunday mornings.
You can give online just as you do in person, and even designate your giving as you choose.
Appreciated Non-Cash Assets:
Examples of non-cash assets include publicly traded securities (stock/mutual funds), real estate, or private business interests, held for more than one year.
These assets provide a unique opportunity to leverage your most valuable investments to achieve maximum impact with your charitable giving.
Donating these assets can unlock additional funds for charity in two ways.
First, you would eliminate the capital gains tax you would incur if you sold the assets yourself and donated the proceeds, which may increase the amount available for charity by up to 20%.
Second, you would claim a fair market value charitable deduction for the tax year in which the gift is made and may choose to pass on that savings in the form of more giving.
Qualified Charitable Distributions
Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCD) allows retirees age 70 ½ and older to donate up to $100,000 tax-free from their IRA each year.
Generally, when you take a distribution from your IRA, that distribution is treated as taxable income.
Under the QCD provision which was made permanent in 2015, those assets are excluded from income of the QCD is made directly to charity.
Thank you for your support of the ministry God is doing through our church.
