STEWARDSHIP OF TREASURE
Tithe in a Spirit of Joy
The Four "P's" For Financial Generosity
Make a PLANNED gift - God expects more than your loose change. He wants you to PLAN to give to your parish on a regular basis.
Make your gift a PRIORITY - God asks for our "first fruits." Place God before all other scheduled payments in your budget.
Give a PERCENTAGE of your income - In the Old Testament, God required a tithe, a tenth (10%) of gross income. Jesus warns us to "take care, to guard against all greed." - Luke 12:15
Make a PROGRESSIVE increase - Jesus calls us to give up everything and follow him. "If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor." - Matthew 19:21

O God, give me a generous heart. Help me to put You first in my finances.

Have you ever created a family budget? At the top of most people's list of expenses are big items, like the mortgage, car payments, and tuition. Other expenses are food, gas, and entertainment. But how about the Church? Does Christ Our King have a place in your family budget? Stewardship causes us to rethink our priorities. We are called to place God first in all things, including our giving.
A Tithing Community
Christ Our King is a sacrificial giving community. One key element of this practice is that we give 10 percent of parishioners' financial support to recognized charities locally, across the country and around the world.
