Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 2 Corinthians 9:6-7
What Is Stewardship?
A biblical worldview of stewardship starts with the conviction that “God owns it all” and we are simply his stewards (or temporary managers) of all that he has entrusted to us during our lifetime. This includes our time, our talent, our influence, our spiritual gifts, as well as our physical and financial resources. Learn more: Stewardship Resources
When you choose to give online using the link above, you can give to one of these funds to support the mission of our church.
The Annual Fund supports the annual budget needs of the church. This is the necessary and appropriate place for your regular giving.
The CEPC Endowment Fund exists to provide a level of support for the long term financial health of this congregation and its ministries. It is a separate entity with its own governing board of CEPC members. Memorial gifts, honorary gifts and estate gifts often go into the Endowment. These are gifts that “keep on giving”.

In 2006, the Session of CEPC set aside funds to build the Tumaini Orphanage in Soy, Kenya. Learn more: Tumaini Children’s Village.

Did you know you can help support our church financially while shopping online? When you shop at smile.amazon.com, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible Amazon Smile purchases to the charitable organization of your choice. You can simply sign into your Amazon account at smile.amazon.com and search for “Christ Evangelical Presbyterian Church Endowment Foundation” as the charity you want to support.
If you previously had your AmazonSmile account set to donate to the church, you have probably received a notice that AmazonSmile is not able to issue donations to us because we do not meet eligibility requirements. We have been in contact with AmazonSmile and have determined that our ineligibility is due to how our non-profit status is categorized by the IRS. We have discovered that our transition between the EPC to the PCA has not been completed on the IRS records. We are working with the PCA office in Atlanta to resolve this transition. Until then, we recommend you direct your AmazonSmile donations to the “Christ Evangelical Presbyterian Church Endowment Foundation.”
