Tithes - First Giving
We read in Malachi where God instructs His people to give Him the first 10% of all He gives them. He says not for His benefit but for our benefit. Our hearts need to give it to remind us that God gave everything for us.
Offerings - Giving Beyond
God also asks us to stretch ourselves by sacrificing to meet needs. Honestly, most of us have more than we really need. In addition to your regular tithe, you can give to these other approved programs through the church:
- Missionaries - we support missionaries who are around the globe helping many people, doing many good works such as education, church planting, feeding programs and drilling for wells.
*During our services, we have an opportunity to give towards one of these offerings. Another option would be to give on-line. Click on the on-line giving tab.
