Why We Give
Giving is an act of worship and obedience from a heart surrendered to Christ ... a choice we make to follow God's instruction for us. Pastor Brewton reminds us that God doesn't need anything from us, it's all His anyway. And although God always honors and blesses obedience, we don't give to get. We give out of our need to act on our faith. God uses those resources for His glory and to further His Kingdom.
What's the difference between "tithes" and "offerings"?
God calls each of us to give 10% of our "first fruits" to the "storehouse"...to the church we've been called to serve. Our tithes help to create the quality environment, ministries, and discipleship tools we all enjoy. Macedonia also believes that our church, as one body of believers, is called to tithe.
Occasionally, God calls us to make
sacrificial offerings above our tithe. These offerings are usually designated
to a specific campaign (Building Project), ministry, outreach, or perhaps to
help meet the needs of the community. In addition to those needs being met,
your obedient generosity many times also increases the faith of the recipient!
Most of us don’t carry cash or a checkbook anymore, but online giving is easy and flexible.
