We therefore encourage everyone to use a debit card as the first option.
When you’re at a Covenant Church campus, you can give using “the envelope" for your cash (if you’d like a record of your gift) or by check, payable to Covenant Church.
Let's be honest, the idea of tithing, bringing the first 10% of our income to the Church, seems overwhelming. Here's the thing. It doesn't matter how much or how little we make, God promises to pour out blessings on us when we tithe.
Tithing is about training our heart to trust God at His word. In Malachi 3:10, the Bible says we can take the promises of God to the bank. When we bring our first and best back to God, He promises to bless the rest. We can't outgive God.
We commit to you that if you tithe for 90 days and do not experience God's faithfulness, we will return 100% of your tithe. No questions asked. Take your next step of faith and register below.

As you prepare your tithes and offerings, consider these convenient options available [if you are giving towards a specific cause or purpose (e.g., debt reduction, holiday meals, etc), please be sure to include that info in the memo line]:
Simply drop off or mail your contribution to the main office at 4005 Corey Rd, Winterville NC 28590. You may also use our giving envelope to mail in your contribution. Be sure to include name and address on check or envelope to ensure that your gift is included in your annual giving statement.
If you use online banking, you can easily set up a BillPay account to give to Covenant Church. If your BillPay requires an account number, simply enter your name. Once set up, you can set one-time or even recurring contributions through your checking/savings account, and your financial institution will send Covenant your contribution as a check.
You will receive a tax deduction for the fair market value of your securities at the time of donation, and you will pay no capital gains tax on the difference between your cost and the fair market value. For questions about this, please contact Diane Joyner by email or at 252.355.0123
Stewardship is the careful and responsible management of something entrusted to one's care. Biblical stewardship includes talents, gifts, bodies, minds, families, etc. – and, of course, finances.
Absolutely! There are approximately 2350 verses in scripture that speak to money and possessions. Many areas other than giving are part of God's plan for managing this stuff called money. To see some of the verses and other topics, download this PDF.
The tithe was not instituted for God's benefit because He already has the money He needs. He does not need our money. Tithing was created for our benefit (see "Why is giving so important?" below).
Covenant believes that we are mere stewards of what God has given us. Therefore, we see tithing as giving back what is God's to God (and He lets us steward the other 90% to use appropriately). Any amount above 10% is considered an offering to God. This type of giving is over and above and should also be done with cheerfulness.
Yes. Simply ask. Covenant's fiscal budget year is July through June.
