Invest in the Kingdom of God

Contributing financially to the church in the form of "tithes and offerings" is not exactly the same thing as donating to your favorite charity, though people are certainly free to give that way if it is how they understand and appreciate the church. But an offering to the church is most commonly an act of worship, which is offered in thanks and dedication to God. This is why the church receives tithes and offerings during the "Thanksgiving" movement of the worship service each Sunday. It is also the case, according to the Old Testament prophets, that our offerings would be quite empty were they not used to bring about the just kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven, particularly for those who are oppressed. In this sense our giving to the church is not so much a donation or charity, but an investment in the Kingdom of God! Learn about how to invest through Bethany Presbyterian Church below. Thank you for your generosity!
