Your gift helps us live out our vision to serve the world.
Giving at New Covenant
We encourage all of those who are part of our Church family to give—not out of obligation but out of a spirit of worship. Your gifts allow God's work to be done in our midst, in our community, and in the world around us.
Why We Give
“Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it. I will prevent pests from devouring your crops, and the vines in your fields will not drop their fruit before it is ripe,” says the Lord Almighty. “Then all the nations will call you blessed, for yours will be a delightful land,” says the Lord Almighty.”
- What is the difference between Tithe and Offering?
The word “Tithe” means tenth. God asks His people to trust Him as provider by giving 10% of our income to Him as an act of worship (Mal. 3:10). Biblically we are prohibited from designating our Tithe to a specific person or parachurch ministry. It is to go to the “Storehouse”. Today, the “Storehouse” is the local church. An Offering is a financial gift that goes above and beyond our Tithe. God asks that His people give Offerings to the poor, widows, orphans, missions and ministers of the Gospel (2 Cor. 9).
- Can I designate my Tithe?
No. The Bible prohibits designating your Tithe to a specific person or ministry (Mal. 3:10). You can designate your Offering which is above your tithe to a person or ministry approved by the Elders at New Covenant. You may designate your Offering to anyone outside New Covenant as God leads you.
- Does all my Offering money go to the fund I’m giving to?
Yes. All funds designated as an Offering that are donated to a specific fund, person or ministry go to them.
- Is Tithing in the New Testament?
Yes. When Jesus rebuked the Pharisees for their hypocrisy of tithing their spices but neglecting justice, mercy and faithfulness He reaffirmed the necessity of tithing while challenging them to do good toward others (Matt. 23:23).
- Why is there an option to add 3%
Adding 3% to your tithe or offering helps us offset the cost of processing your financial gift electronically.
- Do I have to add 3% to my Tithe or Offering?
