Stewardship – the giving of financial support and the sharing our talents – is an essential part of the life of faith. Gifts of time, talent and financial support make the work of the American International Church possible.

There are many ways to make financial gifts: Cash, Checks, Direct Debit, Transfers of US Stocks, and Wills or Estate Planning.
Giving is a deeply personal thing, and while we encourage it as a part of life for mature and maturing disciples, we do not make specific demands of members and others who attend our church. If you decide to make a financial pledge in partnership with the mission of the AIC, and are in need of assistance in that process, please contact Pastor Jodi or Pastor Doug at the church office.

“Each one should use the gifts they have received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, that person should do it as one who is speaking the very words of God. If anyone serves, that person should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ.” (1 Peter 4:8-11)
