Jesus is the most generous person who ever lived. He gave his life so that we might be saved. As Christians, we serve God and others by giving our time, talent, and money joyfully in response to Jesus’ generosity so that we can make him known to the people of our community and beyond. You can be a part of what God is doing here at Courageous Church through your faithful tithes and offerings.
As God leads you, we want to make it convenient for you to give. You are welcome to give at any time during our Sunday worship services with cash, check, or online with your debit, credit, or bank draft through SecureGive. You can make a one-time gift or setup recurring donations to make it even easier.
What is tithing?
A tithe (which means “tenth”) is defined as the first 10% of a person’s income that is to be given back to the local church and is a principle that is taught throughout the entire Bible. When we tithe, we are expressing worship in the one tangible way that we have to put God first in our lives.
Bringing our tithes is an opportunity for us to give God our thanks, show God we trust Him and fight against greed in our hearts… all while allowing us to be a part of the most important work in life that is spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ!
If you would like to read more about what the Bible has to say about tithing, check out these passages: Leviticus 27:30, Proverbs 3:9-10, Malachi 3:6-10, Matthew 6:19-24 and 1 Corinthians 16:1-2.
90 Day Tithe Challenge
Let’s be real. Most of us work way too hard for far too little. So for most, the idea of tithing, bringing the first 10% of our income to the Church, seems overwhelming. The thing is, it doesn’t matter how much or how little we make, God promises to pour out blessings on us when we tithe.
Tithing is about training our heart to trust God at His word. In Malachi 3:10, 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 outgive God.
If you haven’t started tithing yet, we want to extend the 90 Day Tithe Challenge to you. We know generosity is a huge step of obedience, but you’re not in this alone! We want to know you’re taking your next step in generosity by bringing your full tithe to the church with the 90 Day Tithe Challenge.
We would also love to hear your story along the way—how is God blessing you after taking this next step in your walk with Him? Let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We commit to you that if you tithe for three months and God doesn’t hold true to His promises of blessings, we will refund 100% of your tithe. No questions asked.
