God wants to give us more than we can ask or imagine.
Before we even decided to believe, He gave up His Son for us. Everything we have comes from God. So we can never give Him more than He has already given us. When we give, we are using our blessings to bless others so they can experience life with Him, too.
How to Give
One of the primary ways that the Bible talks about giving is by tithing. "Tithe" means "tenth" so "tithing" is giving a tenth of everything you earn (before taxes or deductions) to God. But giving is more than just tithing. It's about putting God first. The Bible talks about God being a generous Father. So when we are generous, we're taking after our Dad.
You can make a one-time gift or schedule recurring donations using your bank account, debit or credit card. Please only choose to give using a credit card if you pay off your balance every month. 2-3% of each credit card donation goes toward fees that The Hills Church pays for this service.

We believe in the power of generosity in all its forms. Donating stocks or gifting working vehicles to families in need are just two of the ways that we can give. Ask us how you can use your assets to share with others and bless those in need.

God wants to give us more than a free pass to Heaven. He wants us to be free here on Earth. One way to be free is to trust Him with anything and everything. That means with our money too. Take your first step toward freedom by signing up for a group or financial coaching.
