At New City we profess that our Sovereign God owns everything and He provides according to His steadfast will and plan. We encourage members of New City to live lives that are abundantly generous and sacrificial. Through giving regularly, joyfully, and sacrificially we remind ourselves, and demonstrate to others the truth of the gospel of Christ – that the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ is the most generous gift ever given. When we give as Christ gave, we joyfully become poor for the sake of others, we recognize Christ as supreme in our lives, we place reliance on him to provide our needs, and we can begin to remove the idol of money and consumerism from our hearts.
How can I give to the mission of New City Church?
There are several ways to worship through giving at New City.
Option #1: Sunday Worship Gatherings
Each Sunday, as part of our corporate worship, we can joyfully respond to God’s generosity towards us by placing checks or cash in the Connection Boxes. If you are someone who likes to give cash and would like a tax-receipt at the end of the year from New City, you will have to make sure to put your name on the envelope.
Option #2: Online Bill Pay
This is a good option because there is no fee and it happens automatically. Use your bank’s bill pay feature to set up recurring donations at no charge to New City or you. Your bank’s online banking system should be able to guide you through this process.

How Can I Track My Giving

- Log into your City account HERE
- Click on Giving on the left hand side of the screen
- Click on the “My Giving” tab at the top of the screen
- Choose the appropriate year in the Drop Down window (New City began using the City in 2015)
- You can also choose to view just you, you & your spouse, or your & your household.
Please keep in mind that this process is managed by people so there may be a 30-day lag between the date of your giving and when the information is properly uploaded to our database.
At New City we profess that everything we see and everything we have are owned by our Sovereign God and He provides according to His steadfast will and plan. (1 Chronicles 29.10-19, Psalm 24.1-2, Psalm 50.10-11)
We encourage each follower of Christ to prayerfully consider and evaluate what God the Father, through the Spirit, is calling them to give. Giving generously should be an active and intentional piece of our regular worship and service to our King. Our aim is to be Christlike in our generosity – ‘who although He was rich, yet for our sakes He became poor, so that we by His poverty might become rich’. The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ is the most generous gift ever given – when the King of Glory gave up everything in order to reconcile us to God. When this Gospel takes root in our lives, we gladly become poor, giving sacrificially of our lives to enrich the lives of others. In so doing, we remind ourselves, and demonstrate to others the great generosity of our abundantly good God. (2. Corinthians 8.9-10, 2 Corinthians 9.7)
We see in scripture numerous teaching for each believer in regards to money.
Scripture provides encouragement so that we can:
- Give cheerfully and joyfully – demonstrating an overflowing of love for our God (2 Corinthians 9.7)
- Give our first fruits – meaning we give of our best and also that we give so that we rely on God to provide the remainder of our needs (Deuteronomy 26.2, Proverbs 3.9)
- Give humbly – not looking for praise but seeking eternal rewards. (Matthew 6.2)
- Give regularly – to remind ourselves of His provision to us continually. (1 Corinthians 16.2)
- Give sacrificially – so we reflect the way Christ gave to us. (2 Corinthians 8.9-10)
In addition to encouraging us, Scripture warns us of the many pitfalls of money:
- Money, or riches, can easily become an idol. We can to easily rely on our resources to feel secure or provide an identity for us. The lure of money attracts us in a variety of ways – whether it is the perceived safety net it provides, the power it can bring, or the material things it can buy. (Matthew 6.19-24, Luke 16.10-13, 1 Timothy 6.10, Ecclesiastes 5.10-12)
- How we practically manage, spend, give or save our money can potentially expose these idols and help break their hold over our hearts. (Luke 16.10-13)
We believe that as Christ followers we are called to financially support our local Church. In addition, God calls us to demonstrate mercy & compassion through giving aimed at caring for the widowed, poor, needy and foreigner in our community. (2 Chronicles 31.4, Deuteronomy 26.12, 1 Corinthians 9.8-14, 1 Timothy 5.17-18, Luke 8.1-3, Isaiah 58.6-12, Deuteronomy 26.12, 2 Corinthians 8-9)
