Offerings are acts of worship, beyond tithe, that we choose to give. Offerings are given as a free-will heartfelt response to the blessings of God. (Deuteronomy 16:17)
Many church ministries depend on faithful offerings.
- In most cases, an additional 4-7% offering would fully support the local church budget.
- Oregon Conference Youth Support provides resources for senior academies, Big Lake Youth Camp, and young adult ministries.
- World Budget supports disaster and famine relief, higher education, media ministries, and other mission outreach.
