6. What is tithing? How do I give?2021-02-08T16:03:35-05:00

The word “tithe” literally means tenth or 10 percent. A tithe is the first 10 percent of your gross income. An offering is anything you give above and beyond the 10 percent.

Why do we tithe? The Bible says the purpose of tithing is to teach us always to put God first in our lives (Deuteronomy 14:23, TLB). Tithing is a reminder that God is the supplier of everything we have. It is also God’s personal invitation to an outpouring of His blessing in our lives—even though as Christians, we do not give in order to get blessings, but to be a blessing.

In Malachi 3:10, God says this: “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this … and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.” This is the only place in Scripture where God tells us to put Him to the test. In other words, He’s saying, “Go ahead. See if you can out-give Me!”

You can give via a Giving Envelope found in the back of the pews or electronically on the church website.  All members are assigned Giving Numbers which should be noted on their Giving Envelopes.
