You have the option to make a quick one-time gift or a recurring gift through your checking or credit card account by clicking the link above. You can easily login to see how much you have given throughout the year, as well as edit your payment or contact information. There are several benefits to giving online:
Faithfully Honoring God
When you sign up to give online you are deciding in advance to faithfully give. The Bible teaches that we are to honor God with the "first fruits" of our labor (Proverbs 3:9). By setting up a recurring contribution that is scheduled to come out of your account on the day you specify, you can ensure that your first fruits are faithfully given back to God.
You won’t have to remember whether you gave this month or send in an offering by mail when you’re on a trip.
We utilize an encrypted secure website for our giving portal to ensure protection of your sensitive personal information and giving history.
You have the ability to quickly see your online giving history directly through our giving portal instead of having to contact the church office for a personalized report.
Purpose of Tithing
The purpose of tithing is to remind us that God is the supplier of everything and it teaches us to always put God first in our lives. The word "tithe" mean tenth or ten percent. Tithing, or giving ten percent of your income isn't merely giving something to God, it's giving back what was His to begin with. All that we have, or hope to have, comes from Him.
May you be blessed abundantly as you give generously and cheerfully with all your heart!
Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.
2 Corinthians 9:6-8
Stewardship of Finances
The ministry of South Bay Community Church is funded by God's provision through the tithes and offerings of faithful SBCC members and attenders. The Elder Board and Leadership Team work very hard to ensure we are doing everything possible to properly manage the financial resources that God has entrusted to us. We honor God's provision by pursuing wise and faithful stewardship, ethical business practices, and full accountability so that the financial integrity of our church remains beyond reproach.
