For those who attend a particular church regularly, tithes and consistent stewardship at that church is very important. It is one of the simplest ways that we can make an offering of ourselves directly to God through His Church and make enough room within ourselves to receive His blessing in return (Mal. 3:10–12).
How should I give?
We give to God of our first-fruits (before anything else) and with a cheerful disposition (2 Cor. 9:7), understanding that everything we have is a gift from God.
How much should I give?
100%! As Christians we commend “ourselves, each other, and all our lives to God”; this is possible as can be seen in the lives of the saints. However, the most common practice today is still the Old Testament standard of giving 10% of our income before bills or taxes (Lev. 27:30–34).
In addition to our tithe, almsgiving is an important part of the Christian life. Especially during fasting seasons, almsgiving coupled with prayer and fasting is at the heart of our spiritual practice. At St Mark we take offerings for the following:
