Are you confused what you should give to the church through tithes and offerings? You are not alone. Most churches want 10% of your income. I have even seen yearly membership due too. So I decided to conduct some research on this topic.
Here’s what I came up with. When you are at a worship service, you’ll always hear the same spill from the clergy. [You can give online, by text, mail by check, or in-person when you exit the doors. Give any amount that you can. We appreciate your giving’s.]
Churches are not really free. To keep a church running members must be donating money to keep the staff employed, the building maintenance, future expansion, and sending missionary funds, supplies, and equipment that they need. The church runs like a business too. Some people forget that.
I had the Pastor if he tracks the amount of money people and donating to the church and he said no. Another church member told me that they do track the amount of money you give them because they send you a letter at the end of the year of the total amount that you gave them. You can use the letter as a donation to take off of your taxes.
Finally, if you are not paying for your fair share then look at the clergy to give less one-on-one time, church services, and much more. I can tell you from my experience. I have found little interaction with the church pastors. I think they are keeping tabs on who gives and who doesn’t. That should not be the case on what people can afford. Do the right thing and give what you can. No one is expecting you to drain your bank account to give to the church. God bless you and your family.
