The Importance of Tithing

Giving is a vital part of spiritual formation and maturity. It requires two things of us: Faith and Faithfulness. Faith Giving is an active expression of our faith. It recognizes God as our True Provider. It also affirms our confidence in His ability to supply all we need. It is an act of gratitude and dependence. And, it allows us to partner with God and His work through our church locally, regionally, and globally. Faithfulness Giving requires the highest standard of personal integrity and discipline. It is not a casual or occasional thing. In 2 Corinthians 8-9, the bible teaches we are to give willingly, generously, and cheerfully. Our pattern should reflect a regular and systematic plan. In Malachi 3:10, we learn God’s standard of the tithe or first tenth being set apart in all of our earnings as a gift to God. Through our tithes and offerings, we prove faithful in the stewardship of all God has provided for us.

The Differences Between Tithes & Offerings

While tithes are the basics of Christian Stewardship, offerings are gifts made above and beyond the scriptural tithe. Throughout the year, you may learn of financial needs beyond regular operations to which you feel led by God to contribute. Gifts made to such specific areas are called "designated" gifts, and when making contributions to those areas, you must specify or designate where you want that money to go. some of those areas include but are not limited to:

  • Budget
  • Building Fund
  • General Missions
  • Special Designations
Ways to Give

At All Saints Catholic Church there are many ways to give monetary gifts..

  • Walk-In - You may bring your contribution to the pastoral center office during the week Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. (cash or check).
  • Weekend Masses - Simply place your envelope in the offering basket as it is passed during the offertory.
  • Give Online - We have many members who enjoy the ease of online giving in the privacy of their homes. You may use Visa, Mastercard, Discover and ACH.
  • Text to Give - Donors can send a text message with the dollar amount (e.g. "$10") to a reserved phone number. If this is the first time giving this way, you will have to fill out a short form with your billing info. After the initial setup, giving is as easy as sending a text message.
  • Stocks and Bonds - Gifts of appreciated stock offer additional tax savings. Through this method, you avoid capital gains taxes and receive a tax deduction for the full value of the stock on the date of transfer.
  • Endowment Giving - Many of our members make certain they will be able to continue to give to the work of their local church forever. This can be done by remembering All Saints Catholic Church as you do your estate planning or by making a special gift now.
