What We Believe About Giving

We acknowledge that church and money live in a historic tension: Following Jesus means that money is not the driving force in our lives. And for churches to create loving and just communities these days, some money is needed. So we live in that tension at Centennial, and we seek to trust that a generous life is a meaningful one. We also believe that generous giving includes sharing our time, talents, prayers, and presence with one another and with the world.


For new guests: You are always welcome to give, and we hope you never feel pressured to give your money to us; your presence is a gift to us!


For engaged participants at Centennial: We emphasize that giving generously to this faith community is a part of how we try to be faithful followers of Christ.
