The Bible says in Matthew 6:24 that the top competitor for our commitment to Jesus is money. Giving allows us to demonstrate that He is more important to us than material things. Not having cash or check on hand doesn’t have to hold you back from giving. You can be obedient today by giving online. There is no organization with more potential to change the world than the local church!
SCHEDULE YOUR GIVING
Life is busy isn't it? Between paying bills, running errands, and remembering birthdays, it's easy for giving to end up out of sight and out of mind. It doesn't have to be this way! In less than two minutes you can schedule your giving and cross one more thing off your mental to-do list. Give your brain a break!
WHAT IS TITHING?
A tithe (which just means "tenth") is defined as the first 10% of a person's income before taxes or anything else comes out. It's a way to worship God by showing that we trust Him. The Bible says we can take the promises of God to the bank. When we bring our first and best back to God, He promises to bless the rest. We can't out give God! It's also a way to protect our hearts against greed. By bringing back to God what is rightfully His, we remind ourselves that everything we have comes from Him. As we understand how generous God is to us, we'll find ourselves wanting to be more and more generous toward Him!
90 DAY TITHE CHALLENGE
“Test me in this and see if I don’t open up heaven itself to you and pour out blessings beyond your wildest dreams.”
God tells us to test His faithfulness by returning the first 10% of our income to Him. This is called the tithe. We experience His irrational provision when we tithe, but the first step can be the hardest one to take. The 90 Day Tithe Challenge is a great way to take your next step toward experiencing God’s faithfulness.
Here is C4’s commitment to you:
If you tithe for 90 days and don’t see God’s provision in your life, the church will refund 100% of your tithe.
Should I take the 90 Day Tithe Challenge?
You should consider taking the 90 Day Tithe Challenge if:
• your household hasn’t been tithing for the last six months
• you haven’t approached tithing as a spiritual discipline
• you’ve struggled in your finances
• you haven’t been able to trust God with your finances and future
At C4 we love to serve, and we have a variety of ministries dedicated to making a difference in the community and the world: missions, youth, food pantry, homeless, schools, inner city, and more! All of these ministries are supported by the Dream Fund. Help us make dreams come true!
