Why Give Here?

Covenant Christian Church is committed to reaching those who are far from God, unleashing unprecedented levels of compassion into a broken world, and helping each of us become more fully devoted to Jesus Christ. We have the privilege of partnering with God’s work in the world by using our gifts and resources through the local church.

“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” – Matthew 6:21

Tithing

Tithe means 10%. And in the Bible God challenges us to return 10% of all we make back to him through the local church. It’s not because God needs your money. It’s because he knows that when you get an accurate handle on money, money will not handle you. And you will find yourself in a place of blessing and abundance.

“…Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.” – Malachi 3:10

 

Offering Above and Beyond

An offering is any gift above your regular tithe. Whatever the amount of your offering God will use it to advance his kingdom. Money represents so much of who we are and what we do. What we do with our money tells others who we are and what we do. When we give, we acknowledge the fact that God is in control of our lives.

“You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure, for God loves a person who gives cheerfully.”
– 2 Corinthians 9:7
