Giving at Church
We encourage all of those who are part of our Church family to give—not out of obligation; but, out of a spirit of worship. Your gifts allow God's work to be done in our midst, in our community, and in the world around us.

Why We Give
"In every way I’ve shown you that by laboring like this, it is necessary to help the weak and to keep in mind the words of the Lord Jesus, for He said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ ” Acts 20:35
Giving is a vital part of spiritual formation and maturity. It requires two things of us: Faith and Faithfulness.
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.
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.
Tithing Honors The Lord
"Since you excel in so many ways - you have so much faith, such enthusiasm, and such love for us - now I want you to excel also in this gracious ministry of giving." - 2 Corinthians 8:7
With these two principles in mind, a new opportunity for giving is being provided at Hilltop Lakes Chapel. It is “Online Giving”. It is an easy way to simplify and prioritize your personal plan for giving.
As Christians, we are in a constant process of spiritual growth. As we grow to yield to the lordship of Jesus Christ in our daily lives and obey His commands. Like the spiritual disciplines of prayer, worship and Bible reading, tithing is a simple act of obedience to be used in that growth process. It is in obeying God that we as Christians find abundant life.
The word "tithe" means one tenth (1/10). It refers to giving 10% (1/10) of one's income to the Lord. 1 Samuel 2:30 says, "Those who honor me will I honor, but those who despise me will be disdained."
