Giving

"Bring the full tithe into the storehouse." 

(Malachi 3:10)

In biblical times, the full tithe is the 10% of one's income given for the work of the church.  Living Word follows this principle by giving 10% of what the church receives to charities with missions consistent with our faith.   The remainder is used to fund the ongoing expenses associated with maintaining a vibrant ministry.

Ways to Give

Giving Strategies

  • You may be able to increase giving by lowering your taxable income by using a qualified charitable distribution (QCD).   Givers over the age of 70 and 1/2 who receive a required minimum contribution are urged to consult with a tax professional about this option.
  • Setting up a regular gift to the church through your bank can help you stay on track with your intended giving.
  • If you bought a life insurance policy years ago to protect loved ones who no longer rely on you, consider making the church the beneficiary.
