Offering as an act of Worship

We respond to God’s grace in worship by offering our whole lives back to Him (Romans 12.1-2)- this includes our finances.  We encourage all who consider DH their church home to practice first fruits giving (give first and live on the rest). You can place a check “Downtown Hope” or cash in our offering box today or give online at Your generosity goes to extending God’s grace to our city through the people and work of Downtown Hope. You can find our financial updates on our giving page.

What if I have never given before? A simple way to begin is by committing a small percentage and increasing each year.  The 10% pattern of offering in the Old Testament is a helpful mark to grow towards.
