GIVING

WE ENCOURAGE GIVING AS AN ACT OF WORSHIP


WHY GIVING?
WHY DOES GOD WANT US TO EXCEL IN THE GRACE OF GIVING?

It’s because he influences the world through his people. God gives to you so he can give through you. The Bible tells us that everything we have is a gift from God (1 Chronicles 29:14). As you give both faithfully and faith-fully, the world is changed for the glory of God: the gospel is preached, lives are touched, people are fed, bodies are healed, churches are built; and you, in turn, are blessed by God so that you can give again.

WHAT IS TITHE & HOW IS IT DIFFERENT FROM AN OFFERING?

The word, “tithe” literally means tenth or 10%. A tithe is the first 10% of your income. An offering is anything you give above and beyond the 10%.

WHY DO WE TITHE?

The Bible says, The purpose of tithing is to teach you always to put God first in your lives. (Deuteronomy 14:23 TLB) Tithing is a reminder that God is the supplier of everything we have. It is also God’s personal invitation to an outpouring of his blessing in your life.

In Malachi 3:10 (NLT), God says this: “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the LORD Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.” This is the only place in Scripture where God tells us to put him to the test. In other words, he’s saying, “Go ahead. I dare you. See if you can out-give me.”

IS GOD WISE?  DO YOU TRUST HIM?

These are two fundamental questions behind the act of giving. If God is wise, then you should listen to what he says about financial stewardship. If you trust him, then you should trust him with all aspects of your life, including your finances. So go ahead. Accept God’s invitation to put him to the test. Start tithing faithfully and watch what he does in and through your life.

TAKING THE STEP OF FAITH

When you participate in online giving, you decide in advance to faithfully give. God always blesses that kind of faith!

“Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” – 2 Corinthians 9:7

WAYS TO GIVE

WORSHIP SERVICES

During the weekend services (and mid-week services) we have a time of dedicating our tithes and offerings to God in prayer. This is an opportunity to give to God during the service.

 

MAIL

We can also mail our tithes and offerings. Our offering envelopes are available at Guest Services in the church lobby. The envelopes are pre-addressed with the churches mailing address. Please take time to pray, then simply place your check within the envelope, add a postage stamp and drop in the mailbox

 

TEXT & GIVE

It is easy to text and give right on your phone without internet. Simply Text how much you want to give to our designated church text and give number @ 503-272-6442. You will be prompted to set up a one-time account and that’s it. Save our Hope Point Church Text & Give Number in your phone and you can give by simply texting an amount to our church giving. It’s safe!

 

ONLINE

It is now possible and convenient to give online (either one time or automatically) using this website. Once again, consider gathering together as a family to dedicate what you give in prayer, asking God to accomplish spiritual results – especially that many would come to faith in Jesus Christ.
