Giving

Tithes and offerings

Giving at Bannockburn is simple and secure. Whether you'd like to give a single gift, or schedule on-going giving.

We give because we believe everything we have comes from God. We give because we believe God has entrusted us to be leaders for hope expanding His church in our community and worldwide. We believe giving is an expression of our faithful response to our faithful Father.

What does "tithe" mean?

The Bible teaches that a guideline for giving is called the tithe (Leviticus 27:30). That is giving of a tenth (10%) of what is received in earnings.

What does "offering" mean?

An offering is a gift given above and beyond our tithe.

What the Bible teaches

Giving acknowledges God as the giver of everything we have (James 1:17).

Giving reflects our trust that God will provide for us (Matthew 6:19-24).

Giving allows us to be active participants in God's kingdom work here on earth (2 Corinthians 9:6-7).
