Tithes & Offerings
Tithes and offerings are as old as Abraham and Melchizedek (Genesis 14:17-20). The Bible sets a standard of giving back to the L-rd 10% of your gross income.
Doing so blesses Adonai and the tither, as instructed by the Jewish prophet, Malachi: “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse. Then there will be food in My House. Now test Me in this,” says Adonai Tzva’ot, “see if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out blessings for you, until no one is without enough” (Malachi 3:8-10). It is our privilege to give back to G-d such a small part of what is already His. In the New Testament, many of the believers gave all they had to the work of the L-rd.
Tithing is a condition of membership. We are happy to work with members undergoing periods of financial strain; there are many ways to give, and we will join with you in prayer and planning.
