Tithing Is More Than Giving
The word "tithe" means a tenth or 10%. A tithe is the first 10% of your earnings. An offering is anything you give above and beyond the 10%. When you give your tithe/offering to the church, it goes towards a part of the general budget for the purpose of church operations. Most importantly, God wants our hearts to be cheerful as we give. As we give, it shouldn’t be done under compulsion or reluctantly. God worries more about our hearts than our money.
Beyond Your Tithe
There are different ways you can give beyond your tithe.

Daring Faith monthly giving (Ends January 2020) goes to annual Outreach Events (Home for Christmas, Rocktober, Easter, etc.) developing a church plant in the Tri-Cities, Church Staffing, Technology upgrades, and our developing ministry in Rwanda, Africa.

“Because of our Faith in Him we dare to have boldness, courage, and confidence in coming to God with freedom and without fear.” -Ephesians 3:12
Cares Ministry – Benevolence
Giving to Cares Ministry helps us meet the tangible needs for church family members, and our community.
