Ways to Give
We offer online giving here at Memorial. If you are visiting with us online or in church, please do not feel an obligation to give. Giving money to the church, or tithing is done by our members and disciples that gather here and is typically done for a few reasons:
We recognize that everything we have been given is from God, and he asks us to spend it well. People often give to God through a church as an act of worship and a way to say thank you to God and give back to him! We often refer to this as giving our "first fruits" back to God.
People often give because they value the work that God is doing through Memorial, and they want to see that work continue.
People will also give because they see tithing as a way to express their faith, trust, and devotion to God. We are free to be generous when we know that God generously provides for us at all times.

You can use the drop-down to select an alternate fund such as the Comfort Dog Ministry or the 75th Anniversary Sanctuary Refurbishment fund, or until 5/30/21, the LWR Personal Care Kits. We also have a fund for gifts and Memorials.

Other Ways to Give
If you are interested in purchasing an arrangement to beautify our worship space on Sunday mornings, please call Joan Johnson. Her phone number can be found in the Breeze directory, or you can contact us for more information.
*Please know that the flower arrangement is yours to keep after the worship service on you're scheduled Sunday if desired.
Christ Clinic Item Donations
We continue to support the Christ Clinic, which began in 2000 as a ministry of our church operating out of the gym on a weekly basis. Each month we publish a different item of focus that we are collecting for the clinic in our newsletter. These items include paper towels, disinfectant spray, disinfectant wipes, and more. Of course, any of these items are welcome as donations any time! We have a small basket in the Welcome Center for you to drop off your donations.
