There’s an important relationship between us, our resources and our Lord. That relationship only works "right" when we understand that everything is already His and our response is an act of worship in giving back a portion--the first portion--called a tithe.
Give cheerfully to God (2 Cor 9:7)
"Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver."
Testing God in the tithe (Mal. 3:10–12)
"Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. And thereby put me to the test, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you a blessing until there is no more need..."
An offering is something we give over and above out tithes. Together, these Tithes and Offerings are the fuel to support ministry and mission here at Carson Oaks Community Church. We do not receive support from our denomination or from other sources--just the faithful stewardship of God's people who call this "home".
