What We Believe About Giving

We embrace irrational generosity. Tithing is our foundation of giving. The Bible teaches us a baseline standard for giving: the tithe. When we give the first 10% of our income to the church, we put God first in our lives. Tithing is an act of worship that expresses our gratitude, faith, and love for others.

“Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”  – 2 Corinthians 9:7

At Sunnybrook, we believe the giving of our firstfruits is an act of worship, a way that honors God (Prov 3:9) while also living mindfully that ALL we own, not just what we give is the Lord’s (Psalm 24:1). God is a giver of eternal gifts (John 3:16, 1 Cor 2:12) and temporal (Dt 8:17-18, James 1:17) and when a follower of Christ freely and joyfully gives away their increase, whether it be money, possessions, time, or talents, they are imitating God. We are excited about your desire to give, not only because of how your gift will allow us to continue to be about our mission of being and making disciples, but also because of what your gift prayerfully communicates to the world about your heart and relationship with God (2 Cor 9:12-15) and how investing wisely benefits you (Acts 20:35, Luke 12:33).
