What is expected of me?
Our annual giving commitment represents an
act of worship in which we thank God for our
blessings and acknowledge that everything
we have is a gift from God. The Bible teaches
us to give a tithe or the first ten percent of
what we earn to God and God’s work.
For some, the giving of the tenth is a goal you
are growing toward each year. For others, it is
the starting point, and you will give far in excess
If you are not yet tithing, consider taking a step
toward the tithe this year. Determine your giving in
proportion to your income. What percentage will
you give? Then set a percentage that you can
increase each year until you reach the
We don’t tell you how much you should give,
but our hope is that you are working toward the
biblical tithe of ten percent. If you aren’t there yet,
we hope that you will commit a percentage of your
income for 2012 and then increase the amount as you are able in the future until you reach the tithe.
The process of prayerfully asking God to
guide your decision and then making a
commitment with your financial gifts is an
act of worship, an expression of gratitude
and praise to God. In addition, on a more
practical note, your commitments allow
our church to budget and better plan for
our ministries in the coming year.
