options for giving

WAYS TO GIVE...            
give online-We want to make obedient and cheerful giving as simple and secure as possible. Use the online giving option on this link, the website, or the app to give a one time or recurring gift. You can use a bank account, debit card, or credit card.  Using a bank account incurs the lowest processing fee for the church however, feel free to use the method that is best for you.           

give in person-We provide offering boxes and envelopes around the auditorium. We do not normally take up an offering during the worship services so feel free to place your gift in an offering box before or after a service. We consider giving as an act of worship according to Scripture so whether you click the submit button or place a gift in the offering box, the Lord knows our hearts as we obey Him.              
mail a check-You or your bank can write a check and mail your gift to the church office. Many people set up Wiregrass Church as an online bill pay with their bank. The bank mails a check directly to the church office for you.  This option is usually free with your bank and neither you or the church incur processing fees.                 Wiregrass Church           28125 County Line Rd.           Wesley Chapel, FL 33543

Unveiled: A Study of Revelation

Celebrate Recovery every Monday evening
Expand
Are you struggling with hurts, habits, and hang ups in your life? Maybe it is because of hurt someone else has caused you or hurt you have brought on yourself? CR is a ministry based on the Beatitudes in Matthew 5 to bring real healing whatever the struggle may be in your life. We meet every Monday evening beginning at 6:30 PM with food and coffee. The gathering begins at 7 PM. Childcare is provided.

Freedom
Celebrate Recovery is designed to help people find freedom from hurts, habits and hang-ups including addictions, compulsive and dysfunctional behaviors. The purpose of the Celebrate Recovery @ Wiregrass ministry is to fellowship and celebrate God’s healing power in our lives through the “8 Recovery Principles.” This experience allows us to “be changed.”

Growth
We open the door by sharing our experiences, strengths and hopes with one another. In addition, we become willing to accept God’s grace in solving our life problems. By working and applying these Biblical principles, we begin to grow spiritually. We become free from our addictive, compulsive and dysfunctional behaviors. This freedom creates peace, serenity, joy and most importantly, a stronger personal relationship with God and others.

Healing
As we progress through the program we discover our personal, loving and forgiving Higher Power – Jesus Christ, the one and only true Higher Power. No hurt is beyond healing! No habit is beyond help! No hang-up is beyond hope! Jesus changes everything!
