We do not give because we have to, but because God first gave to us, and we do so with a joyful heart. We are truly grateful for your donation and hope the convenience and simplicity of online giving will be helpful to you. Financial giving can be divided into two categories: tithes and offerings. The Bible teaches us to worship the Lord with our tithe, which is giving 10% of our income. When we give in addition to our tithe, it’s called an offering. Giving an offering is a chance to be extravagantly generous. You can give these additional offerings to our Compassion/Missions fund to help meet the need for our international partners, in addition to needs in Rio Grande Valley.
