WHY WE GIVE...
We who are part of this church family voluntarily contribute financially to support the ministry and mission of the church. The giving of offerings and tithes is just another way that we worship God. Our guests should feel no compulsion whatsoever to give financially. The Scriptures encourage believers to give eagerly and generously to the Lord and His work through their tithes and offerings:
Proverbs 3:9-10 - "Honor the LORD with your wealth and with the firstfruits of all your produce; then your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will be bursting with wine."
2 Corinthians 9:6-7 - "The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver."
WAYS TO GIVE...
