God's people have always been characterized by giving, but the way they've given has changed over time. For example, people no longer bring goats, sheep, calves and grain to God as they did in the Old Testament.
Tithing is an important aspect of the Christian life. Jesus himself said, "It is more blessed to give than to receive" (Acts 20:35). We want to encourage all members to pray about giving and give as God leads them.
Malachi 3:10-11 says, "Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this," says the Lord Almighty, "and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it. I will prevent pests from devouring your crops, and the vines in your fields will not drop their fruit before it is ripe," says the Lord Almighty.
At Highland Park, we will continue to take an offering during the service for people who prefer to give by cash or check. For members who'd rather transfer money electronically, giving through the church website is an option.
The system makes it easy to quickly transfer money from a bank account or debit card to the church safely and securely. One-time gifts and recurring withdrawals can both be set up, and gifts can be given either to the church's general fund or a specific church project.
Feel free to set up an account and make an offering, or contact the church office for help with giving through this site.
