A disciple of Jesus does not labor to store up personal wealth or possessions but to steward God's resources well and model Christ-likeness.
We desire to pursue our joy in Christ alone in everything we do, and a significant way we serve God is by cheerfully giving God our “firstfruits” (cf. 2 Corinthians 9:7, Proverbs 3:9). However, as a community of Christians committed to the mission and ministries of the church, we don't give to meet some percentage but gladly give according to how God has blessed us.
At Five Points, we desire our use of money to increasingly reflect the example of the Macedonian churches: "For in a severe test of affliction, their abundance of joy and their extreme poverty have overflowed in a wealth of generosity on their part" (2 Corinthians 8:2).
To give to Five Points financially:
2. Place cash or a check in the offering plate during a service or in one of the wooden boxes near an entrance (unmarked contributions left in the wooden boxes will go towards the Benevolence Fund).
