Why We Give

Jesus taught in Matthew 6, that there is a connection between our hearts and our wallets. He knew that the biggest competitor for our trust and dependence on Him was money. Giving is an opportunity to tangibly demonstrate that we trust Him above anything else. When we give, we’re saying that we believe that God can do more with part of our money than we can do with all of it.

Schedule Your Giving

Life is busy these days isn’t it? If we aren’t careful, we’ll forget to take care of routine and important things like paying bills, running errands, taking care of to-do’s, and remembering birthdays and anniversaries. Thankfully, we have technology that helps us automate all of the most important things in life.

Why not automate one of the most important spiritual exercises – tithing? Within a few minutes, you can schedule your giving and make sure that you never miss returning your tithe to God!
