Generosity in July - Try-a-Tithe, Take Two!

Hi fellow Churchlings!

Can you believe we are in our last month of the 2017-2018 Generosity Program already?! But FIRST we are going to finish off this year with a second “Try-a-tithe” Sunday. Just as we did in November, we’re encouraging everyone who can and will to try giving a 10% tithe for our offerings on July 29th. Tithing is a biblical principal that encourages us to give one-tenth of our resources “back to God”. That means we give to our churches in order to continue to advance God’s kingdom and to continue to build church ministries for future generations.


Now, we know that not everyone can simply take 10% off of the top of their income/ financial resources every week, but – for this one Sunday – let’s just see what we can accomplish. So, count the coins in your change jar, try to skip a few Starbucks’ coffees (I know THAT’S hard!), or simply give what you can. Let’s all praise God through giving back to Him and watch what He will do with our gifts.

Peace to each of you,
Ellen Ray,
Stewardship Task Force Leader
