Everyone can give and everyone has something to give.  Most giving is done through money, but not all giving is money related.

Here are some simple truths about giving:

  • God has a generous spirit, Psalm 51:12.
  • We are made in God’s image, Genesis 1:27.
  • Everything made by God gives, reproduces and multiplies, Genesis 1:11-31.
  • Giving is a heart issue first, not a money issue. Jesus said, “Where your heart is that where your treasure lies,” Matthew 6:21, 12:42.
  • Giving opens a present door that leads to a future blessing. The Bible states, “Give and it will be given back to you,” Luke 6:38
  • Giving keeps selfishness out of the heart. “A generous heart that refreshes others will be refreshed,” Proverbs 11:24-25.
  • “Give and it will be given back, compressed and multiplied”, Give cheerfully, Luke 6:38, 2 Corinthians 9:5-11.
  • Christ-followers are to excel in the favor of giving, 2 Corinthians 8:7.



  • Seed Offering: A seed offering is giving above the tithe through faith, believing God will meet other specific needs in your life. It’s based on principles shared in Gal 6:7-10, Gen 8:22
  • Compassion offerings: referred to as “alms” in the scripture, Acts 10:2; also known as benevolence offerings. 2 Cor 8:1-8
  • Missions: Helping deliver and spread the good news of Jesus and His grace to others, Phil 4:15-20
  • “Other” offerings: these are received on occasion for special needs, disaster relief, special guests, etc.
