We collect an offering every Sunday at HLBC. You can also send your tithe to 3400 summerfield drive, louisville KY, 40220. If you prefer, you can pick up a form at our welcome center to set up an automatic withdrawal for your monthly giving.
For the believer, we should hold on to our possessions loosely, knowing that all things belong to the LORD. The practice of Tithing (giving a tenth of your earnings) has been around since Genesis chapter 14 and it became a part of God's law in Leviticus chapter 27. 2 Corinthians 9:7 also says "Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver."
Most likely, if you are a christian, you will find yourself in one of these three places in life in regards to giving.
First Time Giver - You're a Christian, but you've never given before. Now is the time to start, whether it's a little or a lot.
Giving Regularly - You give, but it's sporadic and inconsistent. Through the help of God, start a healthy discipline of giving the same amount regularly. Whether you start right at 10%, or work your way up.
Above and Beyond - You faithfully give 10% of every paycheck you get, but you want to do more. Maybe it's time you pray about giving above and beyond. That could be a one time, extra financial gift. It could mean bumping up to 15% of your check. Or maybe there's a specific item that you feel called to donate (a car, clothes, food, a house).
