Anchored in the heart of the Arts District, living, loving and serving as a downtown church is in our DNA. Courageous Giving is an opportunity to divine and devise ways to uncover who we already are as a people of faith. When we give of our resources, time and talent, we are living out our call to be a bridge for the city, showing all how clear purpose and unified action builds the Kingdom of God. Courageously giving of ourselves changes our world.

When I look back, my experiences (as a youth) would not have been possible if it wasn’t for the giving of adults and different people within the congregation.
Dorian Albert
Minister with Youth and Their Families
Whenever we’ve made a commitment, whether it was financial or using our time, it was always different than we thought it was going to be. It was always surprising. It’s always rewarding, and we’ve never regretted it.
Gwen & Eddie Lee
I committed to myself and my family that we would raise our pledge each year, and we finally reached a point to where we could tithe. And I feel good about that, but it was a journey, and it didn’t start out that way.
Sam Barlow
Sharing faith together in relationship – it strengthens it. To be able to come in and serve and use our time and talents in ways that are meaningful… that’s really what it’s all about.
