REJOICE IN THANKSGIVING!
We give because God first gave to us. We received grace long before we were asked to respond in praise and thanksgiving. But our offering is our response to grace. We at Amazing Grace are committed to tithing or 10% giving as the biblical norm for thankful stewardship. We encourage you to place first things first in your life and make your offering a priority. Christ gave all. Let us commit ourselves to growing in our giving.
