Welcome to Online Giving!
Yes, we are talking about money here. We want to talk about money in a biblical way, not a manipulative way. We are not going to ask you to take your wallets out on Sunday morning, pull out the cash, and drop it in the plate to save an endangered whale off the coast of Fiji.
Instead, we’re going to share about why we give and where the money goes.
Why We Give:
The Bible teaches and encourages generous financial giving. The purpose of giving is to teach us always to put God first in our lives and because every time we give, we:
Please God. Hebrews 13:16
Meet needs. Romans 12:13
Break the grip of materialism in our lives. Matthew 6:24
Show our faith in God’s provision. Malachi 3:10
Make our lives more complete. 2 Corinthians 9:6
Store up treasures in heaven. Matthew 6:19-20
The giving at Thrive Christian Church is used to help us accomplish our mission to be a church that is planting churches that help people live the lives God has created us to live. 10% of everything tithed to Thrive we give back to church planting! We are a church committed to planting churches. As our church grows, we look forward to giving more to church planting and mission around the U.S. and the world.
