Church 90 Day Tithe Challenge
We want to challenge
you to start tithing, and see God begin blessing your life as
you commit to healthy financial stewardship.
We're asking you to commit to take 10% of your total income for
the next 90 days and give it to God through the church.
Tithing is God's plan for every follower of Christ. However, the
90 Day Challenge is for individuals or families that have not
been tithing in at least the last six months. Tithing is 10% of
your income not just regular or spontaneous giving in the church
The 90 Day Challenge will begin September 8, 2013 and will end
December 8, 2013. You will then faithfully tithe 10% of your income,
and at the end of 90 days you have another 30 days to request
a full refund.
The only thing in the Bible that God says to test Him on is tithing.
We at CANVAS Church believe in it so strongly that we want to
give you the opportunity to take God at His Word. God promises
to take care of your financial needs when you trust Him by giving
Him the first ten percent.
what? We understand that giving away 10% of your income
can be a big - and often frightening - commitment! That's why
we created the 90 Day Tithing Challenge: a money-back guarantee
of sorts. Essentially, it's a contract based on the promises of
God in Malachi 3:10-11. We commit to you that if you tithe for
three months and God doesn't hold true to His promises of blessings,
we will refund 100% of your tithe. No questions asked.
participating in the 90 Day Challenge please make sure you've
got the rules covered:

short list of questions you might have about the 90 Day Challenge

tithing? [ TOP ]
"tithe" is derived from the Hebrew word ma'aser and
it literally means a tenth. Ten percent of everything belongs
to the Lord. In Malachi 3:10-11, God says,
"Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse that there may
be food in my house." The 'storehouse' is the Old Testament
picture of the New Testament church. So as New Testament believers,
we worship the Lord with the tithe; or the ten percent.
the difference between a tithe and an offering? [
The tithe is 10%
of your income. God says that He has given us all that we own,
and that the first 10% is dedicated to Him, and we are to be faithful
in "bringing the tithe." Offerings are any generous
giving that you do over and above your tithe. And while your tithe
is designated for the local church, an offering is for you to
be generous wherever you see a need.
of Christ confuse giving regularly with tithing,
and while giving regularly is highly commendable, and it is a
big step in and of itself, tithing is taking a full 10%
of your paycheck, and giving it to the local church in order to
be an important part of building God’s Kingdom.

you keep track of my tithe? [ TOP
LIFE” Church carefully and confidentially tracts each gift
in order to provide each giver with an end of the year report
on their contributions. However, when you sign up for the
90 Day Challenge all money that you tithe in the 3 month
period will be stored separately from the main church funds, and
will remain there for 30 days following the end of the 3 month
period. Please feel free to call (770-792-3535) or email the church
for more information on your tithe.
the benefits of tithing? [ TOP
carries multiple facets that will benefit your life. First, God
commands it and any time we take God
at His word we are using faith, and faith can move mountains.
God promises to "open up the windows of heaven and pour
out a blessing on you". In the book of Matthew, Jesus
tells us that if we look after God's Kingdom first, that He will
provide for our physical needs.
Also, in this country,
when you give to a not-for-profit organization (like “THE
LIFE” Church), you receive a tax benefit. At the end of
the year “THE LIFE” Church will provide you with records
of the total amount you have given over the year, and when you
file your taxes your charitable donations are tax deductible.
but not least, when you decide to become a percentage
giver you create margin in your life.
By choosing to live on a lesser percentage of your income, when
difficult situations and circumstances arise that margin will
carry you through.
my money go? [ TOP ]
LIFE” Church is 100% supported through
your tithes and offerings. The money you give goes toward paying
mortgage, outreach programs, ministry budgets, salaries, equipment
purchases, etc. As we approach each new year and carefully and
prayerfully develop our budget, we are looking through the eyes
of faith into what we feel God wants us, as a church, to accomplish
for Him. So, with new opportunities for ministry, we have new
opportunities to touch lives and to build His Kingdom.
LIFE” Church pays a tithe of all of its income
by giving to M.C.H.C.A - Mount Calvary Holy Church of America,
Inc., which assists local, national and international missions
and outreaches, as well as planting other churches all across
the country. YOUR tithes and offerings have already
gone to help plant and support other churches through our faithful
giving to the Mount Calvary Holy Church of America, Inc. (www.mchca.org)!
give while I'm trying to get out of debt? [ TOP
may sound irrational, because getting out of debt should be one
of the highest priorities in your financial planning, but by obeying
God first in your finances, we believe that God will supernaturally
revolutionize your financial situation. And, since getting out
of debt is all about discipline, just think of the benefits of
developing a financial plan that includes God’s prescribed
discipline of faithful percentage giving!
