The Cove's Philosophy of Giving stems from a believer's obligation to be a wise steward of all the resources with which God has blessed him/her. Financial contributions are not "payments for services" they are acts of stewardship, done in obedience and hope; obedience to God's commands and hope that God will use both what we give and the fact that we give to cause his kingdom to grow in us and around us. At The Cove we understand that giving of our material resources for the kingdom of God is a significant part of our worship. We also believe that we as the church are to be meticulous in how we handle those resources entrusted to us.

The Cove provides a number of ways to give financially. For each of the following methods, please be sure to indicate whether your gift is for general operating budget or a designated fund.

Sunday Giving

Each Sunday at The Cove a specific moment in the service is set aside to worship God through the giving of tithes and offerings. We encourage the use of our pre-printed envelope system and invite you to participate. If you are not currently receiving monthly donation envelope packets and would like to, please contact the Finance Coordinator at
