HEART FOR THE HOUSE
For those of you who have participated in our past Heart for the House offerings, you remember that we historically set aside one offering at the end of the year. Pastor Stovall talked about our new pattern of giving when we will bring our over and above offerings three times a year. As we reflect on the whole story of King Jesus, the Bible shows us that this is a special time to come before God with an offering. In fact 3 times a year the Lord says “don’t come before me empty handed.”

BEGIN TO TITHE
Tithing is an act of worship and obedience to God. However, it is also a commandment tied to great promise. Nowhere else in the scripture does God say to “Try it! Put me to the test!” (Malachi 3:10 NLT) When we tithe, God promises to bless us. Those blessings look differently for each of us and though God’s blessing is not our motive for tithing, it does remind us of God’s goodness toward us.
90% of our income with God’s blessing will always go further than 100% without it.
This is your commitment to tithe a full 10% of your income for the next 8 weeks. Trusting God and putting Him first in your finances declares a blessing over your life. God invites us to test Him in this area and see if He will not respond faithfully (Malachi 3:10).
COMMIT TO TITHE the first 10% of all income as an act of faith.
WATCH WHAT GOD WILL DO and Share Your Testimony with us.
WHY SHOULD I GIVE?
Trusting God and putting Him first in your finances declares a blessing over your life. God tells us to test him in bringing the whole tithe and see if He will not “throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it” (Malachi 3:10).
Your giving at Celebration Church will allow us to reach others and increase their awareness of the Good News, the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
