We give because God first gave to us. We give not because we have to, but because we get to. It’s not out of obligation or guilt but rather gratitude of the heart. It is a tangible way to be part of the mission of sharing Jesus with a world in need.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW DO I GIVE? CAN I GIVE ONLINE?
Online giving allows for a specific dollar amount to be deducted automatically from a checking or savings account. You can set up online giving as a one-time donation or a recurring gift. Online giving is not only easy, it’s also safe and secure. This option helps individuals and families remain faithful in their giving even when they are out of town or unable to attend a service. To set up your online giving click here. We use tithe.ly as our online giving partner.
If you desire to give as the offering plates are passed during our Sunday Worship service, we encourage you to use giving envelopes or write a check. Remember, loose cash in the offering plate can’t be recorded for your tax purposes. If you would like envelopes, they are available from the ushers.
You may send your offering to:
Christian Life Assembly of God

WHAT IS TITHING? WHY DO WE TITHE?
The Bible says the purpose of tithing is to teach you always to put God first in your life. 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” literally means a tenth or 10%. A tithe is the first 10% of your income. An offering is anything you give above and beyond the 10%.
In Malachi 3:10 God says:
Bring all the tithes into the storehouse so there will be enough food in my Temple. If you do,” says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, “I will open the windows of heaven for you. I will pour out a blessing so great you won’t have enough room to take it in! This is the only place in Scripture where God tells us to put Him to the test.
In other words, He is saying, “God ahead, I dare you. See if you can out-give Me.”
WILL I RECEIVE A GIVING STATEMENT?
Yes. In late January you will automatically receive a statement for tax purposes sent to the address attached to your giving envelope or check.
WHERE DO MY DONATIONS GO?
Most donations go into Christian Life’s General Fund which makes possible the day-to-day ministries and services of our Church. Opportunities to designate a donation to a specific ministry or event are considered Designated Funds.
