Poverty level income for a family of four is $19,000
A tithe (10%) on that amount is $158 each month
2200 families at Church x $158 x 12 = $4.171M ($1M more than our current budget – imagine the possibilities!)
2 Corinthians 8 & 9 lists these reasons to give.
» We receive Christ’s grace first.
» We have overflowing joy.
» We offer service to the saints.
» We give first to the Lord.
» We keep with God’s will.
» We receive all we need.
We are each challenged to give 10% of our income (tithe) in response to God’s word in Malachi 3:10 – “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.”
