Giving is one of the greatest opportunities someone has to express their love for Jesus Christ. We give because God gave us the greatest example of giving.
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” John 3:16 (NASB)
Harbor Church affirms the “tithe” in the Old Testament as an excellent giving beginning point for the New Testament giver. A “tithe” is simply ten percent. The New Testament takes giving a step further by not focusing on a regulation or guideline but focused on one’s heart condition or spiritual readiness.
“Now this I say, he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” 2 Corinthians 9:6-7 (NASB)
So give excitedly…with joy! Because God is going to do tremendous things through giving with a happy attitude!
There are several ways you can give at Harbor Church:
1. We offer safe and secure online giving. In addition to tithes, Harbor Church will offer additional opportunities in directed giving online. For example, A building fund is currently set up to support future HC expansion.
2. We offer the old fashioned way (during a worship service) or by regular automatic withdrawal from your bank, forms are available at offering boxes or in office.
3. You can also give stocks, bonds or mutual funds.
We provide you with a record of your giving for tax purposes; online giving is not included in this. If you give online your records can be accessed and printed from your personal online giving account. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or to arrange your gift today.
So give to God first and remember…you will never out give God! Thank you for supporting the work of Jesus Christ through Harbor Church!
