Tithes and Offerings

What Is Tithing?
A tithe—which just means “tenth”—is defined as the first 10% of a person’s income. The Bible says we can take the promises of God to the bank. When we bring our first and best back to God, He promises to bless the rest. We can’t out give God. We know tithing is a huge step of obedience, but you’re not in this alone!
Tithing is a way to worship God by showing Him that we trust His promises. It’s also a way to protect our hearts from greed. By bringing back to God what is rightfully His, we remind ourselves that everything we have comes from Him.
What Are Offerings?
Offerings are any gifts we give over and above the tithe. As we understand how generous God is to us, we’ll find ourselves wanting to be more and more generous toward Him.
Schedule Your Giving

Your life is busy these days, isn’t it? Between paying bills, running errands, and remembering birthdays and anniversaries, giving can easily get put on the back burner.
The truth is, it doesn’t have to be this way. You can literally schedule your next gift in two minutes. Go ahead, give your brain a break. It deserves it.
I would urge us all to make this an issue of prayer. If any one of us sets up automatic gifts, we do so as an act of worship.  Giving financially to the work of the ministry is something God wants us to do “not reluctantly, or under compulsion, but with a cheerful heart” (2 Cor 9:7).
Convenience is sometimes the enemy of thoughtfulness. It doesn’t have to be, as long as we walk forward in this area with intentionality and a desire to joyfully share in the work of Jesus, it is an act of worship.
