We believe that personal giving is a strong reflection of our trust in God, and our maturity as followers of Jesus. The New Testament teaches that our giving is to be regular, sacrificial, proportional, and joyful.
What about tithing?
At CFC you may be surprised to discover that we do not teach tithing (the giving of 10% of our income to the Lord). We teach grace giving instead of tithing because it is the joyful privilege of managing God’s resources according to God’s priorities taught in the letters to the New Testament churches while tithing is often treated as a “God tax” to begrudgingly pay.
Is it anonymous?
Except for our Executive Pastor, not one of the Pastoral staff or the Elder team is privy to what individuals give. We do this because we believe your giving is between you and the Lord and we want to protect ourselves from any temptation of favoritism toward large donors.
Special Giving Opportunity!
Readiosity is a word we have made up to champion the quality of being ready to be generous.
Readioisty is important because sometimes people experience needs that are unexpected. We desire to be ready to help meet the physical needs of our community (the CFC community and the Jacksonville community)
