Tithes & Offering

Tithing is one way to worship God—to honor Him as your provider and remind yourself that all of your resources belong to Him and are provided through His grace. As you worship God with that ‘first fruits’ of your labor, you set your course to honor God in the way you handle the rest of your finances.

Building Fund

In 2008, at the launch of Vision 2015 and the Building Fund, we raised $3M through the faithful giving of attendees of the Church towards a total of $6.2M. The remainder $3.2M cost was funded through a loan from the Churches of Christ Property Corporation. The funding was derived entirely from committed attendees of Clayton Church through God’s enablement. No government grants or public organisation sources were sought.

As at May 2017, we have not quite finished paying off our loan from the Churches of Christ, and we also have financial obligations to repay our members the remaining Interest Free Loans.

There are 2 ways you can currently contribute to the Building Fund.. Please prayerfully consider what God would have you give above your tithe by giving:

  • Sacrificially. Ask the Lord in prayer to point out to you specific savings you can make, the ‘wants’ and luxuries you might forego, and/or a lifestyle change which you can delay or alter in order to free up finance. These are sacrifices of personal gains made for a greater purpose; the purposes of God for the church.
  • By Faith. This is an exciting avenue of God’s provision. Believe that God will use you to provide financially through ‘unexpected’ sources. Pray for God to reveal a sum to you (and your family). Act in faith by placing that amount as a pledge to the project, and then wait in trusting anticipation.

 

Key Questions

1: How do I revise my prior commitment?

If you are having difficulty fulfilling your pledged amount, you can revise your commitment at any time. Please contact the Church Office. If you are facing any difficulty in life, no matter what the issue might be, you must know that you can share your burden with your church family, therefore, talk to your life group leader or pastor.

2: Is there any Tax Deductible Giving?

33% of your giving towards Building Fund is tax deductible under current legislation. You will receive a tax receipt at the end of each financial year of your giving. Please tick the box on the pledge card if you wish to receive a tax deductible receipt.

3: Confidentiality

Your financial pledge is a matter between you and God. Only the church Finance Committee will know of your pledge and will handle the records in strictest confidence.
