By tithing, you place your financial trust in God's hands, adhering to the biblical principle of giving the first 10% of your income back to Him. We've witnessed abundant provision in our church, confident that He will abundantly provide for you and your family when prioritizing Him in your finances.

This act stands out in the Bible as the one where God encourages testing Him: "Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it." Malachi 3:10

Why Give To Harvest Community Church?

Harvest Community Church relies on the financial support of God through the faithful giving of church family members and guests, the community, and through partner churches and organizations. All of our giving and spending is managed through our Finance Team, which consists of our elected church Treasurer and two other members elected by our church membership. The church membership votes annually on a budget which governs the day to day spending. Harvest Community Church uses the funds you donate to provide salaries, cover building and operating costs, provide ministry education and outreach within our church and community, and gives fractionally to other mission, relief, and networking organizations.

F.A.Q About Giving To Our Church

Integrity is a vital aspect of our church, and it’s no different when it comes to finances. We will always faithfully steward your financial gifts and never take for granted your giving. We are humbly grateful for your willing investment in Harvest Community Church.

Malachi 3:10 explains that tithe literally means "tenth", which is denoting what percentage of your income, or anything you produce, you should prayerfully consider giving back to God as your spiritual act of worship. God calls his church to be the collector and manger of these funds according to His plans and purposes. People who are new to tithing may find it difficult, at first, to give 10% of their income. If this is you, please go to God in prayer and make it a priority to give something on a regular basis. You will find that God is faithful to continue to bless what you give cheerfully so you may continue to be obedient moving forward.

In Malachi 3:10, God tells us to bring the tithe, which is 10% of our income, to Him. Later, Jesus affirms this in the New Testament. We understand that tithing may be new to you and it may seem hard, at first, to give 10%. We ask that you prayerful commit to giving something and work your way up from there.

A tithe literally means "tenth" and is to come from the first of your income before your expenses. Offering is any gift above and beyond your tithe. We will often ask for love benevolence offerings to help people in our church or community or love offerings to give to a guest speaker or musician. There is no specific instructions on how much to give for an offering, but God loves a cheerful giver based on 2 Corinthians 9:7.

The easiest way to give is online through the computer or mobile app. You can make a one time gift or set your giving to be automatically deducted from your checking account at the interval most convenient to you.

Harvest Community Church is committed to financial transparency. Our church membership pre-approves of any money to be spent through our annual budget adoption. We have a treasure who actively maintains our cashflow records and quarterly reports our income and expenses to the church membership. Our Finance Team works diligently to develop and present the proposed budget to the church membership each year and reviews expenditures that exceed the church budget while communicating these additional financial needs to the church. We have a third party bookkeeper who is not a member of our church who helps with tax filings and checks and balances. We also undergo a voluntary audit regularly to make sure our practices are meeting or exceeding the local, state, and federal requirements while at the same time looks for any discrepancies.

HarvesAll spending is authorized once a year through the adoption of an annual budget as voted on by the members of the church. A Finance Team is elected by the church to help oversee the budget process and present additional expenditures to the church for periodic approval. The church has an elected treasurer who records and manages the income and expenses of the church in addition to presenting financial reports to the church on a quarterly basis. The Harvest Community Church utilizes a non associated bookkeeper to help maintain local, state, and federal in addition to proving a form of checks and balances for our finances. As an additional measure of fidelity and transparency, our church voluntarily requests and annual audit of our income, expenses, and financial processes to insure high levels of integrity and best practices.
