Tithes and Offerings
The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it” (Psalm 24:1).
Tithing is the giving of our first fruits in response to all the gracious things God does for us. Tithing demonstrates trust in the Lord who has a vast storehouse from which to meet our needs.
The tithes and offerings of the members and worshiping family at St. James make up the primary source of revenue for the church. We believe that God asks us, as members of a fellowship, to set aside a portion of our resources to support the church and its ministries. Giving is both an act of obedience and of devotion, and is an essential component of faith formation as we learn to trust God in all the areas of our lives.
