At Silver Creek, we believe that the best gifts come out of a sense of joy, not duty. We want you to prayerfully consider what you can give in terms of time, talents, and money that will bring about a sense of joy in your life. When we contribute to something that we are passionate about it should make us happy, not regretful. Our prayer is that through giving, your life will be enriched!
Martin Luther once said that the last thing to be converted in a person's life is the purse. Scripture teaches us that as followers of Jesus we offer to God our first fruits. Tithing, the return to God of 10% of what He has given to us, is a practice as old as the Bible and as current as new believers in the Lord. Bill Hybels, pastor of a large midwestern church, said he gave more than ten percent of his income back to God just in case he forgot something. I want to invite you to regular, faithful, and sacrificial practices of Christian Stewardship as is reflected in tithing. You will be blessed in every way for great generosity and I welcome you to this step of faith.
- Dr. Vaughn Baker, Senior Pastor
