In the Treasury Department, we have the honor of receiving the resources that flow into God's church from his faithful children and distributing it to different ministries that help spread God's love and word throughout our area.

These funds and gifts make the growth and development of this family we call the church possible; sending the sustaining resources to programs like Sunset Lake, local evangelism, local education and school programs.

The Government of Heaven is about benevolence, and this is exemplified in the church. Selfless gifts and resources flow from God's children, extending the loving arm of God to more and more places.

Remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, "It is more blessed to give than to receive," Acts 20:35.
