Bringing the first 10% of our income to God feels overwhelming. But he promises to bless us when we take that step. Tithing is about learning to trust that he will keep that promise. Our commitment to you? If you tithe for 3 months and God does not hold true to his promise we will refund 100% of your tithe after you have met with the Pastor and shown that God did not keep his promise to you.
SBC will also tithe the first 10% of all collections for this 90 day period. This is a church-wide effort that we will lean and depend on the Lord.
Take the Challenge!
“Bring all the tithes into the storehouse so there will be enough food in my Temple If you do,” says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, “I will open the window of heaven for you. I will pour out a blessing so great you won’t have enough room to take it in! Try it! Put me to the test ” Malachi 3:10 (NLT)
Let us know you are taking the 90 Day Tithe Challenge. We are so confident that God will bless you when you put him first. We want to pray for you during your 90 days and trust with you that God will keep his promise of blessings. If you did not find spiritual success in this challenge after 90 days of true tithing, call the church office to set up an appointment with the Pastor to discuss your spiritual walk of faith in tithing. We will refund your tithe if the Pastor is in agreement with your observation.
Malachi 3:10, 2 Corinthians 9:7, Proverbs 2:9-10 and 3 John 2
SBC TITHING PRAYER
“Dear Father, We know that it is Your will to bless SBC. We know that as we are faithful to pay our tithes as a church and personally and give to Your work, You will bless us. You said that as we give it shall be given back to us, good measure, pressed down and shaken together. Your Word says that You love a cheerful giver. Help us to be sensitive to Your Spirit, and help us to be obedient to give as You instruct SBC. Give us wisdom and understanding, that we might be a good steward over all that You have given to our church. Help us to use discretion in our spending habits. Let us be practical, sensible, and intelligent in all of our buying decisions. Give us creative ideas and new insights to create income for the church and our families. Help us to be productive and diligent in our jobs. Give us favor with our employers. We thank You, Lord, that increases and promotions come from You. We thank You that SBC and the families represented in SBC are blessed. Let us be financially successful so that we can be abundant givers to Your work and a blessing to others. In Jesus’s name we pray. Amen.”
