Thanks to God’s providence and your faithfulness, last year saw an increase in the number of households pledging toward the needs of St George Church. Without the countless volunteer hours put in by faithful parishioners, the fruit of our labors would be far less plentiful. Yet, hoping to get everyone on board so that our ministry can keep up with the growth and needs of our community, the following verses and definitions are provided:
Pledges, Tithes & Offerings
We obligate ourselves to bring the first fruits of our ground and the first fruits of all fruit of every tree, year by year, to the house of the LORD – (Nehemiah 10:35).
You shall tithe all the yield of your seed, which comes forth from the field year by year – (Deuteronomy 14:22).
If you are offering your gift at the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar and go; first be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift – (Matthew 5:23–24).
Ascribe to the LORD, O families of the peoples, ascribe to the LORD glory and strength! Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name; bring an offering, and come into his courts! – (Psalm 96 [95 LXX]:7-8).
The question we must ask ourselves is: What do we believe God wants us to lovingly give Him, from what He has lovingly given us?
