Why do we give to the local church?
"The earth is the LORD's, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it..." - Psalm 24:1
As Christ Followers, we believe that we are stewards of God's resources because He is the owner of all that we have. Throughout scripture, we are reminded of the importance of giving back a portion of what God has so generously provided. His Word tells us that giving is an act of worship that should be done with a spirit of thanksgiving.
How do we give?
At Colwood we have several ways that you can give to God's work through your tithes and offerings. You can give by check on Sundays, you can mail a check to our offices, or you can give online. We do strongly suggest that no one use a credit card unless it is paid off every month. The Bible speaks in Proverbs 22:7 about “…the borrower [being] servant to the lender.” We do not wish our congregation to go into debt by tithing on a credit card.
