Giving online has never been easier! Within a few minutes, you can make a one-time gift or set up a recurring gift using a credit card or bank account right from your phone. Best of all, your payment information can be saved securely in your account, making the next time you give that much easier.
WHY WE GIVE
Jesus taught in Matthew 6 that there is a connection between our hearts and our wallets. He knew the biggest competitor for our trust and dependence on Him is money. Giving is an opportunity to tangibly demonstrate that we trust Him above anything else. When we give, we’re saying we believe God can do more with part of our money than we can do with all of it.
WHAT IS TITHING?
Tithing is a way we worship God, because it shows Him that we trust His provision in our lives. “Tithe” means ten percent, which is the portion of our income that we give to God to say thank you for all He has given us. God doesn’t need our money, He wants our trust, and trusting Him with our finances is a great way to demonstrate our dependence on Him.
We want you and your family to thrive financially! We understand how hard it can be to save and plan for the future. We have listed a very simple, yet effective, way to run your finances. We understand that starting off at this point may be rough for some but we believe that this is a great budgeting goal for you and your family.
On every paycheck, take the first 30% and divide it in the manner below. Use the remaining 70% to live on. This budget strategy sets you up for financial success for now and the future.
10% Charity or Tithing
Each month, set aside 10 percent of your income for tithing.
Each month, set aside 10 percent of your income in a savings account for emergencies and special opportunities. This is emergency money. Car breaks down. Washer needs fixed. Roof needs repaired.
Each month, put 10 percent of your income into a life investment of some sort. This can be set up at your bank. Roth IRA fund or something like that. Your bank will have all the info on that.
Life is busy these days, isn’t it? If we aren’t careful, we’ll forget to take care of routine and important things
like paying bills, running errands, taking care of to-do’s, and remembering birthdays and anniversaries. Thankfully, we have technology that helps us automate all of the most important things in life.
Why not automate one of the most important spiritual exercises: tithing? Within a few minutes,
you can schedule your giving and make sure that you never miss returning your tithe to God!
