Giving at Grace South Bay

At Grace South Bay, we believe that giving is an expression of worship and thankfulness to return to God a portion of what he has asked us to manage. While many of our members choose to participate in this act of worship during our Sunday service we also offer additional giving opportunities for those that are not able or prefer not to give during the service. We also take very seriously the role that God has given us to steward the financial resources of the Church.
