What is a Tithe? What is an Offering?

In the Bible, a tithe is 10% of one’s income. It is honoring the Lord with the “first fruits” of our labor (Proverbs 3:9). An offering is giving above and beyond your tithe, such as another ministry or a specific cause. We encourage you to take the finance class we offer throughout the year and find out more about this subject and other stewardship principles addressed in the Bible.

What does my gift support?

Your gift enables ECWC to fulfill its mission and vision to, “Connect , Grow and Link” our community to Christ. It also supports the operations of the church and its ministries.

Why should I give?

  • Because it reflects your relationship with God. Tithing is about trust and follow thru. Will you trust that God will provide and will make good on His promises and will you act on what God’s word calls you to do?
  • Because it allows us to give back to God a small portion of all He has given us.
    For “The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it.” 1 Corinthians 10:26
