Everything is a gift from God, and giving is an opportunity to express gratitude and recognize what He has done for you. When you give, you’re simply offering Him a portion of your blessings. In the Old Testament, God instructed His people to give a tithe, or a tenth, to represent their portion of goods. Tithing provides a model for New Testament giving today. We encourage you to take the step and start giving faithfully, joyfully, generously, and sacrificially of your earnings while working towards the ability to tithe. The New Testament simply states for each to give according to their income. When you faithfully invest in your church, you’re not only making an impact for others, but also for yourself.

When you put God first in your finances, you’re trusting Him to take care of you, and making it possibles for The Ridge to be an inviting church that leads people into a growing relationship with God and others. God will use your financial giving to change lives in our church, community, state, and world! Your generosity makes a difference.
