Tithe  &  Offering

In response to God's generous grace, we are invited to live generously as well - not as owners but as stewards of the resources that have been entrusted to our care.


The ministries of our church are funded through the gifts of those who have chosen to live generously in response to God's generosity.

types of giving

  • TITHE - the regular giving of 10% of one's income. Tithe funds are pooled and distributed world-wide to support pastors, teachers and denominational workers.  Click Here for a more detailed description of how tithe dollars are used here in the Southeastern California Conference.
  • CHURCH BUDGET - (suggested 3% of income) This covers the local church's expenses, including office salaries, utilities, school subsidy, supplies, and some of our local ministries. (Pastors are paid by the conference from Tithe funds).
  • SPECIAL OFFERINGS - gifts to specific church ministries not funded by the budget - including Community Services, Church Member Assistance, our Food Bank and other missions or special projects. To see a list of many of these projects scroll down further.


Tithe and Offerings are received during our worship services, by sending them to the church office, or by paying on line.
