Why we give
Thank you for your support of Sweetwater Church of Christ. By the grace of God, your gifts and prayers help us transform lives and communities as we continue the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and grace, hope, forgiveness and love
God says: In Malachi 3:10 (NLT), "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."
Jesus says: Luke 6:38 (NLT) Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full-pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap." Your giving supports the advancement of the Kingdom of God in countless ways.
The Bible teaches us a baseline standard for giving. When we give the first fruit to the church, we put God first in our lives. Generosity is an act of worship that expresses our gratitude, faith, and love for others.
