is an act of obedience, an act of worship, and even an act of love. The word tithe appears in Old and New Testaments and it simply means "tenth." A tithe is 10% of our gross income or "firstfruits." For believers, it is an act of obedience to bring our tithes into the house of God. Giving freewill (discretionary) offerings is an act of worship. "Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver" (2 Corinthians 9:7 NIV). Cheerful giving reflects an attitude of worship to God and He loves it! Offerings, above and beyond tithes, are where giving actually begins. Giving is also an act of love. Benevolence giving is applied toward needs that arise from disasters or unexpected hardships, so we can help hurting people of our community and our world.

Giving to missions...
is a powerful investment in the lives of people like us around the world. Missionaries leave their homes, families, and friends in order to live among people groups who have not heard the good news of Jesus Christ, or have no way of being discipled (learning how to walk with God) .Your missions contributions go directly to the ministries of the missionaries we support, and whether you are a regular here at RCC, a casual acquaintance, or a web surfer that just wants to help, your contributions will empower those missionaries to accomplish their noble efforts and missions work!

Nathan and Meredith Jones (along with their children Elijah, Josiah, and Violet) serve as missionary associates to London, England with the Assemblies of God. They’ve been assisting with a church plant in Watford for the past 2 years. Their primary responsibilities are leading the Wellspring Worship Team and stewarding a coffee shop ministry out of the church.
