Because You Gave… Click here to read our year-end statement.

“Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” (2 Cr 9:7 ESV)

We are thankful to people who give back to God a portion of what He has so richly blessed them with. God is not near as concerned about the amount as He is the motive and the heart it is given with. We encourage you to partner with us in making God’s name great by giving generously and sacrificially.

Where does it all go?

Do you ever wonder what the money is used for that is donated/given? One of our goals as a church is to be very upfront and transparent with our finances. We believe that is key in building trust and integrity for Real Life.

We build our budget around our three purposes as a church:

  • Worship God passionately
  • Grow in Christ deeply
  • Engage the world intentionally

As with every organization there are administrative costs. We have to pay for, maintain and support the various ministries, the staff who lead them and the buildings that house them. The chart below shows how the budget is distributed to support the ministries of Real Life.

“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” (Mt 6:21 ESV)
