Your Giving Matters...
Your giving matters to God, it matters to Avenue and it matters to the people who benefit from your gifts. When you donate to Avenue, the Kingdom of God and the life-giving message of Jesus is spread throughout the world, starting in the Chicagoland area. When you donate a portion of your income or assets, you receive a spiritual blessing of living out the truth that “It is more blessed to give than to receive" (Acts 20:35). For many years Avenue has had a practice of tithing (giving 10%) of our income away. We give to our Local neighbors and community organizations in need, to Nationally-based Christ-centered organizations and to our Global missionaries around the world.
