ThornCreek Church
It's Not All About Me :: Why I Give
Beginning in October, ThornCreek Church will start a new Message Series titled, "It's (not) all about me." We will spend eight (8) weeks looking at what it means to be great in the eyes of God! It's a new attitude that's distinctly different from this world! God wants His love to be in you! THEN...We will climatically finish the series by partnering with Food For Hope and feed 5,000+ people! We will feed needy families in 15 public schools, 4 apartment complexes owned by the Colorado Coalition of the Homeless, and love on the homeless in Downtown Denver.

TC Kids (Birth - 5th Grade)
Expand
ThornCreek Kids Ministry strives to walk alongside and equip parents to be spiritual leaders in their children’s lives. Our hope and prayer is that with a strong faith foundation, kids will make the decision to continue growing as Christians, and become Christ-like disciples.

Our age-level classes allow us to reach children at their developmental level, so that by God’s grace they will be able to comprehend to the best of their ability, the topics we are covering in church!

All Ministry Partners (over the age of 18) have passed background checks, and all Bridge Team members (6th-12th graders) are supervised by adults.

“If a person gets his attitude toward money straight, it will help straighten out almost every other area in his life.” - Billy Graham
TWO REASONS:
1. No conviction to give.
2. Fear of not having enough.
“The tithe is the first 10% of your income that should be given to your local church. It’s strictly measured in money, so you can’t replace it with giving your time or your talents.” - Dave Ramsey
“First thing I will do is pay my tithe like I have since I was in college, getting $700 on a scholarship check. That won’t change. I’ll do that.” - Derek Carr, Raiders Quarterback
John D. Rockefeller was worth twice net worth of Jeff Bezos, Founder of Amazon.

“I never would have been able to tithe the first million dollars I ever made if I had not tithed my first salary, which was $1.50 per week.” - John D. Rockefeller
Tithe or Offering
A tithe is an amount (a percentage of your income) and an offering is anything given beyond that, but not in place of the tithe.
It’s holy. It belongs to God.
“If you can’t live off 90% of your income, then you’re probably struggling to live off 100% anyway, and that means you have bigger financial problems you need to address. It shouldn’t require a miracle for you to get through the month with 10% less in your wallet.” - Dave Ramsey
Tithing is part of your worship to God. It shows God that you are aware He is the Provider of your life, and you depend on Him.
“Tithing isn't the ceiling of giving; it's the floor. It's not the finish line of giving; it's just the starting blocks. Tithes can be the training wheels to launch us into the mind-set, skills, and habits of grace giving.” - Randy Alcorn
“What percentage should you give? I tell people to start with 10 percent because the Bible writers have a lot to say about the tithe, which means, "tenth." For some people, that's extremely uncomfortable. But so is a colonoscopy, and those save countless lives.” - Andy Stanley
"Most people fail to realize that money is both a test and trust from God." - Rick Warren
