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
There are boxes in the foyer and sanctuary for all giving. You can also give by texting CENTRALCC to 77977 and by mailing your check to Central Church, PO Box 232, Carroll, IA 51401.
I understand that this form must be completed and received by the Central Church prior to myself/family beginning our personal Tithe/ Giving Challenge Period.
I understand that my household qualifies for participation because we have not been tithing or giving in accordance to what the Scriptures say in 2 Corinthians 9:6-7: Remember this—a farmer who plants only a few seeds will get a small crop. But the one who plants generously will get a generous crop. You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. “For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.”[ And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others.
I understand that if I choose to begin giving to Central Church that my tithe or offering must be paid by; check, completed giving envelope when using cash, or by giving online. This is to ensure that your tithe or offering can be properly credited.
I understand that I cannot seek a refund prior to the end of my 90 Day commitment, and that I cannot seek a refund for any contributions made prior to the beginning of my Tithing/Giving Challenge Period.
I understand that any request for refund must be received by Central Church within 30 days of the end of my Tithing/Giving Challenge Period.
I agree that for the period of time that I state below, my household will contribute to God, through Central Church, a tithe equal to 10% of our income, will increase our giving, or will begin to work toward the 10%. At the end of that period, if I am not convinced of God’s faithfulness to bless my life as a result of my obedience to His Word, then I will be entitled to request a refund of the full amount of contributions made during my Tithe/Giving Challenge period.
- I make a covenant before God today to “test” His promise by tithing 10% of my income from this day forward for the next 90 days.
- I am already tithing my income, but I would like to participate in the challenge by increasing my giving by ___________ (% or amount) over the next 90 days.
- I understand that the tithe talked about in the Bible, particularly in Malachi 3, is 10%. However, I’m just not there yet. I would like for Central to begin praying with me and my family that we can and will eventually get to that point. I make a covenant before God today and commit in my heart to begin giving __________
(% or amount) of my income to Him for the advancement of His Kingdom. My prayer and hope is that I will see His faithfulness and that our faith in giving will grow as we do this over the next 90 days
I would like to test God's faithfulness by accepting the Tithing Challenge.
