A GENEROUS PEOPLE
We desire to be a generous people who reflect the heart of God. Every time we make a decision to be generous, we discover that our God cannot be out-given.
Giving is an act of worship - an expression of humility and gratitude toward God for His generous love towards us in Christ. Giving fuels the mission of the church and allows us to participate in God's work of transformation in our city and beyond (Acts 2:42-47, 2 Cor 5:17-21). The example of New Testament giving is generous, sacrificial, and cheerful giving as an act of worship and love. (2 Cor 8:1-2; 9:6-15).
In addition to supporting the ministries of City Alliance Church, a significant portion of congregational giving is committed directly to meet local needs, plant new churches and support the work God is doing around the globe through the Christian & Missionary Alliance.
We provide an opportunity to give during our Sunday gatherings, as well as through our online site. If you're interested in exploring alternative giving options, our treasurer would be happy to help you.
City Alliance Church is a registered 501(c)3 NPO.
All donations are tax-deductible.

WHERE DOES YOUR GIVING GO?
Nearly all congregational giving goes into our general fund. Our general fund supports all of our church's day to day ministry, including: outreach, community partnerships, children's ministry, gatherings, city groups, staffing and building expenses. Additionally, a significant portion of our general fund giving is set aside for specific mission emphasis, enabling us to generously meet practical needs in our local community, as well as partner with the greater Alliance to plant churches and support international workers.
GREAT COMMISSION FUND (GCF)
As a congregation of the Christian & Missionary Alliance, we are part of a worldwide Gospel movement. Throughout the year, we highlight particular opportunities where we invite each other to go above and beyond to support Alliance missions across the world through the Great Commission Fund. All donations given through the GCF will go towards supporting Alliance workers in international ministry settings, relief work and unique marketplace ministries in the developing world.
If you have any questions regarding contributions made to our church, please contact Michael Kolb, our board treasurer. A year-end statement will be distributed to you as a record of your giving each January.
