Proverbs 3:9:

“Honor the Lord with your substance and with the first fruits of all your produce;”
We give because God asks for our first fruits. The church then invests these in God’s ministry and mission.

  • Wonderings—I give to good causes but not the church. What should I consider giving to the church?

  • Starting Point—Give a Sunday or special offering and experience God’s joy produced in you.

  • Challenge Steps—Make regular contributions, giving in proportion to your income.

  • Going Deeper—Make an annual commitment/pledge. Increase your gift to a tithe (10%) and beyond. Practice joyful giving by contributions to special missions.
