When you tithe, you’re trusting God with your finances. We honor your gifts with faithful stewardship, ethical business practices, and full accountability so that the financial integrity of Trace Ridge remains beyond reproach. Your gift supports our whole community in providing for the sustainment of our ministries.
A tithe — which just means “tenth”— is defined as 10% of a person’s income. The Bible says we can take the promises of God to the bank. When we bring our first and best back to God, He promises to bless the rest. We can’t out-give God. We know tithing is a huge step of obedience, but you’re not in this alone! Your generosity enables us to help more and more people experience a life-changing relationship with Him.
What happens when I give to Trace Ridge Church?
Take a look at some of the highlights from this year to see how your giving changes lives. Despite the challenges we have faced, God has yet again proved faithful. Our mission of making disciples who love God and love people cannot cease or slow because we know that whoever finds God, finds life.
It’s impossible to out-give God, but you’ll never regret trying.
God gives us good things we don’t deserve and could never earn, like grace and forgiveness. He gave the ultimate gift, His son, for our sins. When you hear us talk about irrational generosity, that’s what we mean. God created you with a generous spirit. We want to help you embrace it by giving beyond your tithe with an offering to one of these causes.
