Here at Rockford First, we believe that we are stewards of God’s resources because He is the owner of all we have. Throughout scripture, we are reminded of the importance of giving back a portion of what God has so generously provided. His Word tells us that giving is an act of obedience and worship that should be done with a spirit of thanksgiving.
