WHY WE GIVE
One of the primary ways that we acknowledge that God is first is by giving the first 10 percent of our income by Tithing to the church. The first of all things belong to God and we find this principle all through God's Word. Give your tithe to God and see if He does not open the windows of Heaven to bless you in ways you never thought were possible. (Malachi 3:10), (Proverbs 3:9-10)
God's people have always been characterized by giving, but the way they've given has changed over time. For example, people no longer bring goats, sheep, calves and grain to God as they did in the Old Testament. Giving money is simpler, cleaner and theologically sounder since Jesus has made the ultimate sacrifice.
Giving is an important aspect of the Christian life. After all, Luke records that Jesus himself said, "It is more blessed to give than to receive" (Acts 20:35). At the Word of His Grace, we want to encourage all members to pray about giving and give as God leads them. As the way that money is exchanged changes, we at the Word of His Grace are extending members a new way to offer their financial gifts to God.
Anyone who would like to give online is welcome to do so through our church website. At the WOHG, we will continue to take an offering during the service for people who prefer to give by cash or check. For those who prefer an online way to give, the church website now offers one. Feel free to set up an account or contact the church for help with giving through the site.
