Tithing enables all of us to succeed in the Lord’s personal and corporate call on our lives. It is one of His tools for escorting us into a generous lifestyle. The word “tithe” means “tenth.” It is a way of honoring God with the first 10% of our income. If you consider Grace Church your home church then you are encouraged to regularly give a tithe to the Lord. And you may wish to sow more into the kingdom by giving an offering in addition to a tithe.
When you get to the page for filling in your giving amount(s) there are categories to place your amount in to. The categories are described as follows:
General Fund –Your tithes and offerings are often the most helpful to the leadership team when given to this fund. You are entrusting them with the decision to apply your giving where it is needed most. The General Fund goes towards the overall operation of the church and church supported events, activities and projects.
Benevolence –These offerings are directed to people with immediate crisis in their lives.
Debt free Offering –We currently owe $363,000 on our property. We are working to be free of this debt to expand kingdom resources in new areas.
Missions Offering –This is a general offering to the mission effort of Grace church. If you desire to designate your offering to a particular missionary please fill in the name in the space provided. Missionaries available for support through Grace church are:
