Faithful giving is always a response to God’s giving. When we see God as the ultimate Giver, we recognize that everything truly belongs to him. When we realize that every good thing comes from God, we can loosen our grip and stop striving as if it were up to us. And when we step into the abundant life he offers to us in Jesus, we increasingly want to invest whatever we can into his work. Giving away money helps us practice and strengthen these beliefs. Making commitments to regularly give money is one of the most critical things we can do to train ourselves – by habit and lifestyle – to trust in God and not ourselves.
Ways to Give
- DURING THE WORSHIP SERVICE:
Place a check or cash in the offering boxes behind the communion tables.
Send your gift to Atlanta Westside Presbyterian Church, 1255 Collier Rd NW, Atlanta, GA 30318.
- BILL-PAY SERVICE FROM YOUR BANK:
Most banks offer online bill pay at no cost to you or to the church. You can use these features to set up either one-time or recurring gifts.

Although the most compelling reasons to give are its rewards as a discipline of grace and a way to partner with one another in the gospel, it’s also true that the church operates on the gifts you give. Whether you’re a member, regular attender or a partner in the gospel from somewhere else, thank you for your contributions to Atlanta Westside! We would not be able to do what we do without these provisions; we thank God and you for them!
