Giving Ministry

TITHES: God has provided a way for us to strengthen our faith in Him while helping others. His law requires that we give 10 percent of what He has given us, to maintain the local church and to do the work of the church. In tithing we are not given a choice. We must obey God's word in all things. Tithing is the responsibility of the membership of the local church.

—Malachi 3:7-12 and Matthew 28:20

OFFERINGS: The words sacrifice and offering are often used interchangeably. An offering is everything brought before God for use in worship. A sacrifice has two contexts: ancient and modern. The ancient context conveys the message of bringing something before God as a means of covering an offense against God. The modern context suggests doing something above and beyond; an extra. An offering is a sacrifice of worship that reminds us of the high price Jesus paid for our sins.

—Mark 12:41-43

OUTREACH DOLLAR: Each week we ask all who attend service to put $1.00 in the outreach basket. We use this dollar to feed the hungry, clothe the naked and give shelter to the shelterless.

—Matthew 25:35-40
