Usually after the Lord's Supper is complete a collection is taken. If you are visiting with us, please do not feel any pressure to put anything into the plate that will be passed to you. If you do choose to give, though, it is important to know why you give. It is not to pay the preacher or to support the church or to express grattitude for a job well done.You give because your heart is touched by the love of God.
We do not demand a "tithe" because God does not demand it. God has some simple instructions on giving. It should be done cheerfully. It should be done sacrifically; not from what is left over but a gift that shows trust and love for the Father. It is an expression of love and grattitude, not a duty.
