If you don’t worship through giving, start. Make your first financial gift, whether it’s a lot or a little.
If you’re an irregular giver, commit to giving regularly – perhaps every Sunday or once per paycheck. 10% of your income is a good target, but if the best you can do right now is, say, 6%, then give 6% regularly and work toward 10% down the road.
Once you are regularly giving a portion of your income, consider giving above and beyond to the mission and vision God has entrusted to us. This might be a large one-time gift or smaller, regular above and beyond giving.
Once you’re giving above and beyond, consider becoming a “multiplier” by sharing your testimony of God’s faithfulness in your finances, or consider becoming a financial coach to other Sojourners (link to Financial Coaching page).
Although everything we have belongs to God anyway, God himself is a far more lavish, sacrificial giver to us than we could ever be in return. The death and resurrection of Jesus represent the most generous gift ever given — when the King of Glory gave up everything in order to reconcile us to God. Giving cheerfully, sacrificially, and consistently to this King is a part of our worship.
“…though [Jesus] was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you by his poverty might become rich” (2 Corinthians 8:9).
If you are currently in debt or have had a history of debt problems please do not use your credit card to tithe or give to the church.
Cash or check can be given during any of our weekend services. If you’d like to receive a tax deduction for cash gifts, the gift should be placed in an offering envelope with your name and address on it. Offering envelopes are available at all of our services.
If giving for a campaign, write the name of the campaign on your check.

Automatic Bill Pay is a great way to give regularly and consistently to Sojourn. In addition, it saves Sojourn transaction and credit card processing fees! That means 100% of your donation goes to fund the operation and vision of Sojourn. You’ll find setup instructions for Automatic Bill Pay at the bottom of this page.

We give as an act of worship and thankfulness for the grace God has shown us through Christ. “Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”
—2 Corinthians 9:7
