How giving helps Waycross First UMC and our ministries
The ministry of Waycross First UMC is funded by God’s provision through the tithes and offerings of faithful members and attendees.
Because of your generous and consistent giving, we are able to do all that we do at Waycross First UMC, including:
Building a solid Biblical foundation for children in our Children's, Youth, and Preschool Ministries
Partnering with local community ministries such as Good Neighbors, LAMBS, the food pantry, and Every Day with Love to meet the physical and spiritual needs of the poor in our city
Providing weekly worship services to share the hope of Christ with our city, and help you deepen your relationship with God
Sharing Christ with our community through outreach projects and special events such as Blessing of the Animals and First Responder Appreciation Day.
And much more!
At Waycross First UMC, we honor God’s provision through your giving by exercising wise and faithful stewardship, ethical business practices, and full accountability so that the financial integrity of Waycross First UMC remains beyond reproach.
Tithing and Stewardship
The Bible teaches, “The purpose of tithing is to teach you always to put God first in your lives.”
(Deuteronomy 14:23 TLB).
Tithing is a reminder that God is the supplier of everything we have. It is also God’s personal invitation to an outpouring of his blessing in your life.
The baseline standard for giving in scripture is “the tithe”, which is derived from the Hebrew word ma’aser and it literally means “a tenth”. Ten percent of everything belongs to the Lord.
When we give the first 10% of our income to the church, we put God first in our lives. Tithing is an act of worship that expresses our gratitude, faith, and love for others.
