the importance of giving
Everything we do is only possible because of consistent, sacrificial and generous giving. At Gateway, we want to partner with Jesus and serve our city. Our desire is to be a church marked by generosity, which is why 10 percent of every dollar goes directly to local and global missions. We are one church, united under one vision, funded by one fund.
There is the opportunity to provide a freewill offering during our Sunday morning service, if you consider Gateway to be your home church. If you are visiting, there is absolutely no pressure to let the offering bag pass you by. However, at this time, due to Covid19, a free will offering can be dropped into the church, and put in the safe for banking.
The matter of your giving is between you and God, and He always takes into account our circumstances. He knows when they are beyond our power to direct and control. The important thing is that we see giving as a privilege and not a burden. It should not be out of a sense of duty, but rather out of love for the Lord and a desire to see His kingdom advanced. (Billy Graham Evangelistic Association)

“Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”
- Corinthians 9:6-7
