West Des Moines


Bible-based giving isn’t about guilt or pressure. It’s about discovering the joy of cheerful generosity in response to God’s amazing grace. All we have is a gift from God, and we’re created to give, not just consume. As followers of Jesus, we don’t give to get noticed, or to get something back. Instead, we give freely and generously to God for the mission of his church from what God has first given us. At Hope, we take seriously the responsibility to distribute offerings faithfully. Our financial books are open to church members, and we’re fast approaching our goal to become a 50/50 church – giving half of all offerings to our local and global mission partners.

"You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. 'For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.'"
