We give because we want to respond to God's great love for us. Everything we have is God's and we are called to be good stewards of what we have received. Through giving of tithes and offerings we are giving back to God and also reminding ourselves that we are not our own. We serve God in all that we say and all that we do.
Online giving is a safe and east way to support the ministries of Gardner Church of the Nazarene. This system enables you to support the church by making a one-time contribution or establishing a recurring contribution.

Benefits of Giving Online
There are several benefits to online giving for both you and the church.
- First Fruits - In Proverbs 3:9 we are taught to honor the Lord with the "First Fruits" of our labor. By setting up a recurring contribution that is scheduled to come out of your account on the day you specify you can ensure that your First Fruits are given back to God.
- Simplicity - You will not need to remember if you gave this month or send in your offering checks when you are out of town.
- Security - Online giving is more secure than giving with a check in that an electronic gift can't be lost or stolen.
- No Distractions - Instead of needing to worry about writing your contribution check during the service, you can be fully engaged with the worship service, knowing that you have already given your offering.
HOW TO START GIVING
Pray // Ask God to guide you in your giving.
Assess your income and giving // Determine your current giving as a percentage of your income.
Set your giving goal // If you are not currently tithing (giving 10 percent of your income), start with a lower percentage and then plan to increase the percentage each year, growing toward the tithe. The important thing is to begin the spiritual discipline of regular, consistent giving.
