giving

Financial giving at The Well can be divided into two categories: tithes and offerings. 


The Bible teaches us that we worship the Lord with our tithe, which is ten percent of our income contributed to the church on a regular basis. The word "tithe" is derived from the Hebrew word maâaser and it literally means a tenth. Ten percent of everything belongs to the Lord. In Malachi 3:10-11, God says, "Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse that there may be food in my house." The 'storehouse' is the Old Testament picture of the New Testament church. So as New Testament believers, we worship the Lord with the tithe; or the ten percent. 


When we give over and above our tithe it is called an "offering." God's Word tells us in Proverbs 3:9-10 to "honor the Lord with your wealth, with the first fruits of all your crops and then your barns will be filled with overflowing." As we trust God with our finances and honor Him with our first fruits, the blessings of God follow. 2 Corinthians 8:7 - "But just as you excel in everything...see that you also excel in this grace of giving."


You can give in person during our Sunday morning services and online (click below). When giving to missions, be sure to specify which ministry you wish to support. Thank you!
