"THE EARTH IS THE LORD'S, AND EVERYTHING IN IT, THE WORLD, AND ALL WHO LIVE IN IT."
Why we encourage giving
We believe all we have comes from the gracious hand of our God. It is not ours to keep; we are just entrusted by Him to use and enjoy these things as He best sees fit for our lives. So we view the giving of our resources to the Lord as an act of worship. That is why it is a part of our worship services. While regular Hopevale attenders are encouraged to participate, we do not want visitors who are just checking us out to feel obligated.
Details about giving at Hopevale
When someone decides to make Hopevale their church home, we then want to help them learn and grow in this aspect of their Christian life. Some will give regularly through our church's offering envelopes which are available at the Welcome Center. Some will choose our online giving option. Clicking one of the above links will direct you to a secure website called "My Community" where you can make a one-time contribution or give on an on-going basis.
Our commitment to financial integrity
We strive to maintain the highest standards of financial integrity. Hopevale Church is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and undergoes annual financial audits conducted by an outside certified public accountant. Whichever giving option you choose, your giving remains confidential and is known only by our finance department. If you have any questions about giving to the Lord at Hopevale, you can contact our Director of Finance and Operations, Amy Ryan via email by clicking her name or by phone at 989.793.3122.
