Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” (2 Corinthians 9:7, NIV)
One of the ways that we worship God is through the regular giving of our tithes and offerings. As we give back to God, we express our faith that God will provide for our needs. It is, for us, an acknowledgement that God owns all that we have, and that we are entrusted to be good stewards of all the material possessions that God has placed within our care.
The Cape Elizabeth Church of the Nazarene depends upon the generous giving of its members and friends. In addition to weekly offerings during our worship celebration, we invite any of our friends to support the ministry. You can mail a check to: Cape Elizabeth Church of the Nazarene, 6 Susan Rd., Cape Elizabeth, ME 04107.
You can also give electronically through EasyTithe at give.capenazarene.org, through the EasyTithe App available for Apple or Android devices, or by texting the amount of your gift to 207-747-3818. Giving is secure and easy, and you can access your electronic giving history at any time. EasyTithe not only allows you to make a one-time gift, but you can make an automated weekly or monthly gift that suits your schedule. For text gifts, a one-time setup/registration screen will appear, and standard text messaging rates apply.
You are welcome to designate your gift in any of the following categories:
- Tithes and Offerings – These gifts help meet the regular operating expenses of the church.
- Faith Promise (Missions) – These gifts are used specifically to fund local and global missions and outreach.
- Capital Campaign – Help us continue to care for and upgrade our 150-year-old building.
