Contributing is our way of showing our investment in our relationship with Jesus and with his Church.

It’s our way of giving back to the loving Father who has given us so much. Many people at Westlake contribute their financial resources, time, energy and abilities by serving weekly to help people find their way back to God. It’s really an act of worship, because it acknowledges Him as the giver of everything we have, it reflects our trust in Him continuing to provide for us, and it allows us to be part of His work here on earth.

Giving online is fast, secure, and easy!

The Bible says to give from the first fruits of our labor, meaning that we give our offerings to God before we spend money on anything else! Setting up a recurring gift online is a great way to make your giving a priority. If you’re not comfortable with online giving we do collect cash and checks, although there is no pressure to give. Cash or checks may be dropped off in the offering boxes at the exits of the worship center.

What am I giving to?

You’re giving to the work of the local church!

Westlake operations and ministries are funded fully by the giving of our people, so when you contribute finances to Westlake you contribute to every way that people see and find God’s love through this church.

There are three specific funds you can give to at Westlake: Tithe, Missions & Building Fund


General/Tithe

The Bible teaches us that our baseline standard for giving is a tithe, which means “tenth”, and God tells us to “Honor God with everything you own: give him the first and the best” (Proverbs 3:9 MSG), so we believe that the first ten percent of our income should be given back to God. Generosity is an outward expression of the condition of our hearts! The tithe is what funds the local church, and our willingness to be generous reflects our trust in God–it’s our acknowledgment that all things come from Him and belong to Him. When God stirs us to give beyond our tithe, it’s referred to as an offering. You can direct offering to the cause that resonates with you.


Missions

Our goal is to make a large impact through key partnerships with ministry organizations. We strive to live out our mission of helping people find their way back to God by reaching outside the walls of our church. We do this by investing in ministry partners locally, nationally and globally.


Building Fund

We are blessed by the many sacrifices that make our gathering place a nice place to worship, gather, and play sports.  Due to the continued sacrifices of many, our debt has been reduced down to $1.3 million.  Our goal would be to eliminate this debt in the next decade.  You can help us!  We ask our members to consider giving and extra 2%, 3%, 5%, or even 10%  of their income toward reducing this debt.  Your generous giving is very much appreciated!
