GIVING

We encourage giving as an act of worship.


WHY GIVING?

Why do we tithe?  The Bible says, “The purpose of tithing is to teach you always to put God first in your lives.” Deuteronomy 14:23

Tithing is a reminder that God is the supplier of everything we have.  It is also God’s personal invitation to an outpouring of his blessing in your life.  The word tithe is derived from the Hebrew word ma’ aser and it literally means a tenth.  Ten percent of everything belongs to the Lord.  In Malachi 3:10, God says, “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house.  Test me in this, says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.”

 This is the only place in scripture where God tells us to put him to the test.  In other words, he’s saying, “Go ahead.  I dare you.  See if you can out-give me.”

Is God wise?  Do you trust him?  These are two fundamental questions behind the act of giving.

  1. If God is wise, then you should listen to what he says about financial stewardship.
  2. If you trust him, then you should trust him with all aspects of your life, including your finances.

So go ahead.  Accept God’s invitation to put him to the test.  Start tithing faithfully and watch what he does in and through your life.

If you have any problems or need assistance with online giving, you can contact the office Tuesday or Thursday afternoons 12-4 or email giving@lonestarcc.org.


Give in order to be blessed. It is, in our vision, a part of our worship to God. He wants us to understand the blessings that come to those who give with a cheerful heart.

WAYS TO GIVE

WORSHIP SERVICES

During the weekend services (and mid-week services) we have a time of dedicating our tithes and offerings to God in prayer. This is an opportunity to give to God during the service.

 

MAIL

We can also mail in our tithes and offerings by simply placing a check in an envelope and sending to the church. Offering envelopes are available at both of the feedbox’s at the back of the church and at the Hospitality Center.  Please take time to pray, then simply place your check or cash within the envelope and drop into the feedbox’s.

 

GIFTS IN KIND

If you have real property, assets, or something you want to bequeath as a gift, please contact the Pastor or one of the Segundos.

 

ONLINE

It is now possible and convenient to give online (either one time or automatically) using this website. Once again, consider gathering together as a family to dedicate what you give in prayer, asking God to accomplish spiritual results – especially that many would come to faith in Jesus Christ.
