Why do we tithe?
The tithe is the action that outwardly acknowledges our trust in God concerning our finances. The tithe is the first 10 percent of all of our increase.
“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.”
– Malachi 3:10
This is just a snapshot of what your giving did last year in 2016.
Our congregation has been able to support the work of Jesus Christ locally, regionally, and around the world. Your financial partnership has enabled us to touch thousands of people with the Gospel. 2016 was an exciting year in the life of River City Church! Many things were accomplished to help push the kingdom of God forward.
These are just a few of the things you helped accomplish in 2016:
- Over 1,300 adults received Jesus as their Lord and Savior in our services.
- 48 people were baptized in our services.
- You helped ensure children had food to eat, blessed the community with our River City Church Serve Day event, and helped teenagers hear about the good news of Jesus in our local school systems.
- You helped to rescue and house children that had been victims of the sex slave trade in Thailand, helped share the good news of Jesus to the nation of Israel and into the Palestinian Authority through a local TV broadcast, and helped train and minister to persecuted pastors throughout Asia.
- Our generous congregation gave $210,787.15 to our Grace Grace building campaign this year and Phase 1 of our new building front was completed!
