Honor God… Live Sent…
When it’s upside down, money can do a lot of damage. But when it’s right side up, money can do a lot of good. God says that we should use our money to worship Him and to live generous lives that excel in doing good and helping others.

Where does your money go?
Just as you strive to be a good steward of the resources entrusted to you, our church strives to be a good steward of the resources entrusted to us. Sent Church’s operational budget, funded by the tithes and offerings of our members and friends, enables our church to carry out its mission to throw a LifeLine to people that leads them to a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. Faith Promise Giving provides financial resources for Sent Church’s LovePrint fund that is leaving God’s LovePrint around the world. All financial processes and records are audited and governed by the Finance Team under the direction of the Local Board of Administration.

Taking steps with my finances.
Start giving regularly: Stay faithful and consistent with an automated recurring schedule. God wants your first fruits not your leftovers. Online giving can be a helpful tool so create an account today.
Be a percentage giver: When God was first teaching His people how to handle their resources, He established the tithe or 10% as his baseline standard. This financial practice became a way to honor God, keep money in its rightful place, and experience the blessing of trusting God. If you’ve never given before, 10% may seem like a giant step of faith for you. Pray about it and take as big a step as you can trust God to take. Whether you start out at 3% or 5%, God can grow your faith until you are able to invest cheerfully in advancing God’s Kingdom on earth.
Make a year end gift: Special one-time, year-end gifts can be a symbolic response of a renewed focus and commitment. This faithful practice can change the giver from the inside out. Split your holiday budget between buying presents and making a special offering.
Get help: If your financial house is not in order and you wish you could give more than you are currently able, we recommend attending a Financial Peace University seminar.
Pray through these probing questions:
- What am I doing to teach my family about the joy of generosity?
- Where in my life am I rich in the things money can’t buy?
- If today were my last day, would I be happy with the legacy my financial choices leave?
- What’s one thing I can do today to live with a generous heart?
- Where have I seen the generosity of others directly affect my life?
- Although I might not be chasing money, are there areas of my life where I hold onto and give it more importance than it deserves?

Yes. You can change or cancel your contribution at any time before the date of your next contribution. Simply log in to the system using your user name and password and make the necessary changes in the system.
Q: Can I review my donation history online?
Yes. The site will allow you to view the complete history of your contributions, given either online or otherwise. Once you’ve created an account, you will able to contribute immediately.

Q: When will contributions be taken from my account?
Contributions will be taken from your specified bank account within 48 business hours of the date you requested. This time frame allows time for the contribution to process through your bank and the church’s bank.

Q. Can I use a debit card?
You can use a debit check card from Visa or MasterCard, but true debit cards are not accepted through the Fellowship One system due to the sensitivity of securely requesting a Personal Identification Number (PIN). ACH bank drafts can be used instead for true debits.
