giving questions

What is stewardship?

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.

Is financial stewardship more than just giving?

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.

What a tithe is NOT?

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).

What is an offering?

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.

Can members get access to church budget information?

Yes. Simply ask. Covenant's fiscal budget year is July through June.



How often will I get a contribution statement?

Contribution statements are mailed quarterly.

What are Covenant's financial accountability standards?

Covenant's finance department is held accountable by a firm set of internal controls and is reviewed annually by an independent panel selected by Covenant's Finance Team.

Where can I go to learn more about managing money God's way?
