2 Corinthians 8:7-9
But as you excel in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in all earnestness, and in our love for you see that you excel in this act of grace also. say this not as a command, but to prove by the earnestness of others that your love also is genuine.  For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you by his poverty might become rich.”
 
Why We Give and How Our Giving is Used:
 
God wants to be first in every aspect of our lives—including our finances. Tithing isn’t about our money, it’s about our relationship with God. By bringing him our first 10%, we’re demonstrating that we trust that he will provide for us. Malachi 3:10 tells us that when we tithe and bring back to God what is already his, he will bless us. So, we encourage people who attend regularly and who are members to give faithfully and generously out of a deep love and gratitude to God for His generosity towards us.
 
Your financial support and generosity allow us to create the quality ministries and events that you and your family enjoy on a weekly basis. When you give to EFCB, it goes towards creating opportunities for people of all ages to gather together, learn about the God and the Bible, and serve our communities. It’s in these different ministries, and in our worship service that people regularly experience life change. And when you give, you need to know that your contribution is being wisely stewarded by our leadership community and Trustees in a way that honors and glorifies God.
