Dear Identity family
As the calendar year draws to a close, Pastor Alex and me want to take a moment to thank you for your faithfulness in giving to the vision of Identity Church this year.
The Lord did so much in our church body in 2021, God’s grace and your faithfulness, including your financial giving, has contributed to that. We are truly grateful. We have continued to take bold steps towards an even greater future as we have stepped into what we believe that God had prepared for us in 2022.
Our church body has a strong history of generosity that helps us to meet current needs and empowers us to step into new areas of ministry in the coming year. Overall we have had a strong financial year and are thankful to God for His faithfulness in all things.
2021 has been a year filled with great ministry opportunities in the midst of lots of changes all around us and in our nation. We are so thankful that in the midst of all this, Jesus has been the strength and focus in our church family and we have weathered the storms of change together by standing united in His Presence.
Chaos or not, God has been using Identity and all the people who attend in incredible ways. We see evidence that God is at work in and through our church family, by changed lives through our worship times together and God’s Word, spiritual growth through God’s Spirit, new attendees, (in person and online). We have seen DNA groups flourishing, men and women groups seeking to go deeper in their faith, mothers gathering to pray for their children, youth desiring the Word of God and best of all, we are a healthy church family in love with our Lord Jesus.
As the pastoral team we are exited that we’ve have had some really great things happening in our different ministries this year, especially through our love and willingness to minister to one another. Also, we have had the opportunity to pray for the persecuted church and serve those in need, through your giving several times this year.
We cannot express our deep heartfelt appreciation for your faithful prayers and financial support as we press in together to see people come to Christ. You are making the difference in so many lives!
Thank you for prayerfully considering how you can continue to make a huge difference with a special year-end offering to the Lord. May God richly bless you!

Many large and local corporations offer employee charitable giving match programs. Check with your company to see if they offer corporate matching, thus doubling your donation to the church.
Gifts of Non-Cash Assets
You can also donate certain assets of value to the church, which can be a tax benefit to the donor, including:
Real Estate: This is especially beneficial if the property is worth less now then when you purchased it. You can donate the proceeds from the sale to the church and take a capital loss on your tax return.
