What’s this all about?
When you start talking about money things can get tense. It’s no secret that churches have used guilt and pressure to coerce people. We don’t want guilt for you. We believe that God teaches us to invest financially in life change, and blesses obedience to this calling.
Who is it for?
If you are someone who is actively following Jesus and attends Covenant Church, it’s important for you to consistently invest in the work God is doing in and through your church. Above all, all tithes and offerings should be given with pure motives and an attitude of worship to God and service to the body of Christ (2 Corinthians 9:7).
Where does the money go?
We work hard to be transparent in our use of funds at Covenant Church. We are a non-profit organization that is funded solely by the gifts of those who believe in the work of the ministry. Our general fund allows us to make an impact in our city through outreach, missions, and church planting. Your offerings afford us a space to meet and worship, pay staff to focus on Gospel ministry full or part time, and further the mission of Christ here on earth.
How much am I supposed to give?
Scripture talks about the importance and benefits of giving. God is the giver of gifts and we are stewards of those gifts. We are to give joyfully, generously, and purposefully. Sometimes that means giving more than 10 percent of your income; sometimes that may mean giving less. Every Christian should diligently pray and seek God’s wisdom and conviction in the matter of participating in tithing and/or how much to give (James 1:5).
