God’s Word calls us to obediently “tithe” (give 10%) of what He gives us, to do His kingdom work. “Offerings” given to God are gifts above and beyond our tithes. Tithes and offerings are vital to the health of Our Church and provide for all the areas of ministry and outreach. (Malachi 3:10)
An offering is a gift above the tithe that God speaks to your heart to give to. That might mean being lavishly generous or simply sacrificial…like sacrificing a fast food meal or Starbucks. What you give as an offering should be decided between you and God, and He asks that you give in some way from a worshipful heart and prayerful consideration.
2 Corinthians 9:7-8 “Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart what to give, not reluctantly of under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.”
Thank you for the many ways that you partner with us to advance the gospel and the Kingdom of God.
