Why do we give?
Giving is much more than just keeping the lights on.  It is about changing lives here in the Pass area and around the world.

God commanded us to give our tithe.  The word "tithe" literally means 10%.  Tithing or giving ten percent of your income, is not merely giving something to God.  It is giving back what was his to begin with.  All that we have, or hope to have, comes from him.  The Bible says that tithing is a reminder that God is the supplier of everything.  It teaches us to always put God first in our lives.  We need to understand that giving is what God wants FOR us; it is not about what He wants FROM us.  The fact of the matter is God does't need our money.  But He knows that giving will benefit us in so many ways.
