How to Give
“Since you excel in so many ways—in your faith, your gifted speakers, your knowledge, your enthusiasm, and your love from us—I want you to excel also in this gracious act of giving.”
—2 Corinthians 8:7 (NLT)
Tithing—giving our first fruits for God’s work on earth—shows our faith in His providence. Giving online is a safe and convenient way to honor the Lord with our tithes and gifts, proving through our regular contributions that we are faithful stewards of all He has provided.
