Frequently Asked Questions
What is a tithe? What is an offering?
In the Bible, a tithe is 10% of one’s income. An offering is when you give above and beyond your tithe, such as supporting other ministries and causes. We encourage you to take a Financial Stewardship Class to find out more about this subject and other stewardship principles addressed in the Bible.
HOW IS MY CONTRIBUTION SPENT?
Your money goes to more than keeping the lights on. Every day, this church is dedicated to improving the lives of people in our local community and beyond. We participate in projects throughout the region, including a partnership with Cross of Christ Church in downtown Rochester. Your funds also go to build hospitals, schools, churches, and provide clean food, water, and more to communities around the world. Your contribution makes it possible to do the work we were created for.
WHAT DOES MY GIFT SUPPORT?
Your gift enables Calvary to fulfill its mission and vision to: “Encourage hearts, be united in love, to know Christ”. It also supports the operations of the church and its ministries.
