We believe God owns everything. His Word shows us both the responsibilities and the blessings of giving.
The act of giving is our acknowledgement that all that we have is a gift to us, entrusted for our stewardship and intended for good. We are taught that our giving should be in proportion to what we have received through God’s goodness, and that it should come from a cheerful heart.
Our giving is an act of worship, a reflection of God’s kindness and provision. The proper use of those gifts is the solemn responsibility of those God places in the roles of leadership in His church. At Westtown Church, that responsibility is carried out by our Elders and our Deacons.
Scripture teaches that the tithe is a tenth of all that God has given us. The tithe is the gift of highest priority. It is 10% of our money, but it is also a tenth of the time we are allotted and a tenth of the “talents” or skills we have been given. Your financial tithe to our church, along with “unrestricted and undesignated” gifts, are used to support the general operations of the church.
