WHAT GIVING MEANS
Thank you for your interest in giving to South Whidbey Assembly. It is gifts from people like you that enable us to effectively minister and reach out to those in our local community and around the world.
Philosophy of Giving
Those who call SWAG their home church regularly give their tithes to the Lord. Tithing is the practice of giving 10% of a person’s income to the Lord as taught in the Bible (Malachi 3:10; Hebrews 7:5). People often give other offerings beyond their tithe amount for world missions, the Caring Fund, and other local ministries and organizations that the church supports. When a person honors God with their tithes and offerings, they are blessed by God in various ways (Proverbs 3:9-10), the church is made financially sound, and people across the world receive support and help. Jesus referred to a connection that exists between giving and a person’s heart and spiritual life. For where your treasure is, there your heart will also be (Matthew 6:21).
Many followers of Jesus have no plan for regular, consistent support of their church or the work of the Gospel around the world. Do you have a plan for regularly and consistently supporting SWAG and the mission of the Gospel?
Often people forget that the mission of the church and the expenses connected to the fulfillment of the mission continue even when they are unable to join the church family for a worship gathering. Please plan to give even when it is not possible for you to worship with the church family regularly.
