GIVING CHEERFULLY & SACRIFICIALLY OF OUR FINANCES IS PART OF OUR WORSHIP
A Christ-follower works hard not to accumulate personal wealth or possessions, but to steward God’s resources well and model Jesus to those around him or her. We call our people to give, not by meeting some obligatory percentage, but gladly sacrificing for the sake of the gospel (2 Cor. 8:1-15) because Jesus sacrificed for us, and everything we have is His.
If you are outside our area and want to give, we appreciate your support.
If SDBC is your home church then feel free to use any of these options to give to the ministry. As a matter of practice and principle all gifts are allotted to SDBC’s general budget unless a special project has been approved.
We thank those who have helped us meet our ministry needs and pray that you will continue in faithful, consistent, godly giving as Scripture instructs.
1. Give via offering or envelopes
DURING SUNDAY WORSHIP
An offering is taken at each Sunday gathering where cash or cheques are accepted. Filling out your information on the envelope in the pew makes tracking your gifts for tax purposes more efficient. For a set of pre-numbered envelopes contact:

MAIL IT IN
Of course, you can give anytime, via mail.
Make cheques payable to SDBC and mail to:

Note: Tax receipts are issued at the end of February for the preceding calendar year.
Why do we give?
The Bible says the purpose of tithing is to teach you to always put God first in your life (Deuteronomy 14:23 TLB). Tithing is a reminder that God is the provider of everything we have. In Malachi 3:10, God says, "'Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test Me in this,' says the LORD Almighty, 'and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it'" (NLT). This is the only place in Scripture where God tells us to put Him to the test. In other words, He's saying, "Go ahead. I dare you. See if you can out-give Me."
