For some reason, money seems to be a hot topic in church circles people avoid.
Jesus took a different approach - He spoke it about it more than any other metaphor
to tell people about the Kingdom of God. Here are a handful of reasons why, and
how when you give to the Lord through His Church the ripples are endless.
God doesn't need your money, - He owns everything. Yet the only thing in the Bible He says to test Him on is tithing. Maybe it's because you're tempted to cling to God's blessings instead of God, or perhaps He wants you to see what happens when you trust Him through His Church. Tithing lets the Lord become your security instead of green paper.
If this is your home church, you know we make the most of every dollar that comes in. Your consistent support helps resource ministry, provide space for it to happen, and have a staff to guide things toward Jesus Christ. Thanks for not merely "tipping" when you feel like you had a "good meal," but regularly "tithing" so we can regularly keep "cooking."
Our culture always offers one more thing to buy that promises fulfillment yet ends in discontentment. Setting aside the first portion of the money God's given us to manage helps us step back from the world's broken system and recenter our hearts on the Lord and what He is up to in the world. Giving stretches our heart in His direction.
The Bible teaches us become generous in our giving so we can excel in meeting real needs in and out of the church. When you give to Connection Church, we invest the first portion of that gift into lives locally and globally - from your neighbors to Africa. Likewise, your financial support helps us in making space in-house for even more life change.
