What is tithing?

Tithing comes from the Old English word meaning "tenth" and refers to the traditional idea that we are called to give one-tenth of our firstfruits, or 10% of our wealth.

We usually think of tithing as meaning money, and for most churches they ask members to give financially, which supports the work of the church. Your financial tithe pays for the lights to be on, and pews to be cleaned, and for ministries to take place.

But tithing can also mean a percentage of your time. Give generously as a volunteer, helping in the areas the church needs.

How can you give?

Ways to give

During Service the offering plate is passed, and you are welcome to drop your gift in it. You are also welcome to talk with a minister about delivering your gift in person.
