What are LC Church’s views about money?
God owns everything! Psalm 24:1, “The Earth is the Lord’s and everything in it, the world and all who live in it.
Where does LC Church get its income?
God provides for us through tithes and offerings of members and attendees. We do not receive income from outside denominational entities. The income we receive comes in electronically and by cash and check.
What is the difference between a tithe and an offering?
A tithe is giving the first 10% of your gross income as defined by Malachi 3:10 and affirmed by Jesus in Matthew 22:21. An offering is anything given above and beyond the tithe.
