Community

Giving

Spiritual Life Center's Community Giving Program Committee, (formerly known as the Tithing Committee), is an outreach program which selects twelve nonprofit Community Partners to give back to. Each month one organization is highlighted and given a financial contribution to further their nonprofit efforts.

Since its inception, Spiritual Life Center has given over $1.2 million to more than 330 organizations. Our Community Giving Program enables us to bless others through the work of God. Together, we are the change we wish to see in the world!
