Why Should I Give?
Living Hope believes that every believer should regularly and faithfully give (tithe) to God who has given us so abundantly. Regular giving is a discipline of faith and an act of worship.
Now this I say, he who sows sparingly shall also reap sparingly; and he who sows bountifully shall also reap bountifully. Let each one 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
John MacArthur teaches “money is a good barometer on spirituality, because the way you handle your money is an indication of your Christian stewardship of life” and that “the stewardship of money is a critical area of life.”
We must strive to be good stewards of our finances and be very honest in how we manage what we have been entrusted with by God. Each Sunday from our pre-schoolers through to our adult worshipers, we are given the opportunity to exercise this discipline and we encourage all our church family to be faithful in our giving.

* Living Hope Community Church prefers ACH or debit card giving over credit card giving as: (a) We do not believe people of faith should give out of a credit card debt but instead give out of what you have and (b) There is a higher transaction fee (+2%) for each credit card transaction and it would be fiscally irresponsible for our regular giving to incur unnecessary fees. Please consider carefully and faithfully when selecting your payment type.
