Ways to Give
At LIFE, we believe it is our privilege and responsibility to honour God in the bringing of our tithes and offerings to our local Church. This timeless principle is God’s prescribed way to fund the Church’s mission on earth. We’ve streamlined this process with the ways to give below, to help make the opportunity to give quick and accessible.
