TITHING is a biblical principal - planning on giving 10% of our income for God's work. We recently heard of someone who, as a family, DOUBLE-TITHE - (that is, they give God 20% of what they earn every year!) - and they are blessed with God's goodness throughout the year, with no shortfall in their own needs.
You may not be ready for that - but giving more than we have given is always a good plan - and you may be surprised how well God thinks of it as you experience it. There was once a preacher who encouraged his people: "Don't give until it hurts - give until it feels good!"
Currently, there are three ways that you can give to Living Faith:
1) Use a weekly Giving Envelope - they will be available at the entrance to the church starting Jan 1, 2017. If you don't currently have a set, please ask our Financial Secretary, Jim Belz, and he will get you set up.
2) Direct your bank through online banking to send a check to Living Faith - either weekly or monthly, or whatever frequency works best for you. Many banks now are now set up for recurring payments that can be sent out on a regular basis that you determine.
3) Enroll in Simply Giving - a program established by Thrivent Financial, and administered by Vanco - they can set up a regular giving program for you and will deduct the amount you designate from your account automatically on the day you specify, and credit Living Faith with that amount. Jim Belz can help set you up for this program.
At some point, we hope to be able to offer online Credit and/or Debit card donations through our website - but that is not yet set up.
