We Truly Believe You Can't Outgive God
The Bible says in Matthew 6:24 that the top competitor for our commitment to Jesus is money. Giving allows us to demonstrate that He is more important to us than material things. Not having cash or check on hand doesn’t have to hold you back from giving. You can be obedient today by giving online. There is no organization with more potential to change the world than the local church!
schedule your giving
Your life is busy these days, isn’t it? Between paying bills, running errands, and remembering birthdays and anniversaries, giving can easily get put on the back burner.
The truth is, it doesn’t have to be this way. You can literally schedule your next gift in two minutes. Go ahead, give your brain a break. It deserves it.
what is tithing?
A tithe—which just means “tenth”—is defined as the first 10% of a person’s income before taxes or anything else comes out. The Bible says we can take the promises of God to the bank. When we bring our first and best back to God, He promises to bless the rest. We can’t outgive God. We know tithing is a huge step of obedience, but you’re not in this alone!

make an impact
Are you looking to make an even bigger impact than just giving your tithe? Here are some other ways that you can get involved in changing lives through giving.
1. General Fund
For many, the idea of bringing the first 10% of our income to the Church seems overwhelming. The thing is, it doesn't matter how much or how little we make, God promises to pour out blessings on us when we tithe.
2. Campus Expansion
Several of our campuses lack permanent buildings. Contributions to our campus expansion fund will pay for new buildings, improvements, or expansions at existing campuses across Maryland and into Delaware. Our desire is for every campus to have a secure home and room to grow so people can connect to Jesus and each other.
Supporting missions and individual missionaries is vital to God’s plan in this world to establish new churches and bring new believers to Christ. When we think of missionaries and mission movements we often think of foreign works; however, at Restore Church we are on a mission to reach people locally as well as to send teams overseas to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.
4. Celebrate Recovery
Celebrate Recovery is a ministry designed to help hurting people. It is made up of regular folks like you and me, who are on a journey toward wholeness; seeking recovery from and celebrating God's healing of life's hurts, habits and hang-ups. Trained leaders provide safe, confidential, Christ-centered groups where people can grow. They offer their stories as fellow travelers on the journey to healing.
At Celebrate Recovery we believe that change is possible by the power of Jesus through this Biblical program.
