At Montvale Church we believe giving and generosity is central to what it means to be a follower of Jesus.
Why should I give?
First, we realize that there is no way we could ever out-give God. He is the most generous. After all, He gave His own perfect Son so that we could be reconnected with Him (John 3:16).
We give for several reasons:
1. God asks us to give and be generous with our money. (2 Cor. 9:7; 1 Ch. 29:14; Prov. 3:9)
2. When we give, we fulfill part of our created purpose to reflect God and His image as the ultimate Giver. (Gen. 1:26-27)
3. We give because God uses it to bless others and to advance His kingdom. (Mal. 3:10)
Where does my gift go?
When you give to Montvale Church, you contribute to a variety of needs. Your gift helps our various ministries stay funded so we can continue to serve the people of Montvale and surrounding communities by showing them Jesus. It also helps cover the costs of our building maintenance and unexpected equipment replacements. Beyond that, your gift not only impacts Montvale Church and the local communities, it also impacts over a dozen missionaries we support around the world that are serving selflessly in areas that desperately need Jesus. Each year we are blessed to give over 14% of our annual budget to national and international missionaries that we are teamed up with. That’s over $80,000! And without faithful people like you, we couldn’t do it.

Looking to make a stock gift?
Montvale Church welcomes all stock and mutual fund transfers. Giving stock held more than 12 months offers a two-fold tax savings. First, you avoid paying capital-gains tax on the increase in value of your stock. In addition, you receive a tax deduction for the full fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift. Subtracting the tax savings from what you originally paid for the stock can result in a gift that costs just pennies on the dollar. This is an excellent option for stock that has appreciated substantially in value.*
