We give because the Bible declares in Deuteronomy 16:17, “Each of you must bring a gift in proportion to the way the Lord your God has blessed you.”
You should give as an act of thanksgiving and gratitude for God’s blessings to you.
The tithes, offerings and gifts we receive are used for the work of ministry and the spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. Calvary provides spiritual and physical assistance to those in need.
Locally, we support: the church’s 42 ministries; members in need; scholarships; several local missions projects including Family Promise, Interfaith Food Pantry, Market Street Mission, Table of Hope and clothing donations; the Community Development Corporation of Northern New Jersey and Angel Tree. Globally, Calvary supports foreign missions projects in: Haiti at the Light & Peace Mission and Orphanage in Cabaret; Jamaica at Alpine Mennonite Church in Red Hills and Dias Church of God in Lucy; and in India at Faith Gospel Church and Orphanage in multiple locations. Therefore, when you give, you are a blessing to someone else!
God even promises to bless those who trust him with their tithes! The best known tithing text, Malachi 3:10 states, “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this, says the Lord Almighty, and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.”
“Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” 2 Corinthians 9: 6-7 NIV **NOTE: You do not need to have a PayPal account in order to donate using PayPal.
