What Are Tithes And Offerings?

“The earth is the Lord’s, and all it contains, the World, and those who dwell in it.” Psalm 24:1

The word “tithe” means one tenth (1/10). It refers to giving 10% (1/10) of one’s income to the Lord. 1 Samuel 2:30 says, “Those who honor me will I honor, but those who despise me will be disdained.”

How do we honor God? Proverbs 3:9-10 says, “Honor the Lord with your income, with the firstfruits of all your crops, then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine.” If you love and fear God, you cannot afford not to give. If you will write that first check each week/month to the Lord, upon the authority of His Word, He will make sure you have all you need. Maybe not all you want, but all you need.
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TITHES & OFFERINGS: While tithes are the basics of Christian Stewardship, offerings are gifts made above and beyond the scriptural tithe. Throughout the year, you may learn of financial needs beyond regular operations to which you feel led by God to contribute.
DESIGNATED GIVING: Gifts made to specific areas are call “designated” gifts, and when making contributions to those areas, you must specify or designate where you want that money to go. Some of those areas include but are not limited to: Missions, Mission Trips, New Building Fund, Benevolence, Library, Others (Youth, Children, HayStack Youth Choir and More)
