• Giving

  • At The Well, we do not believe in passing an offering plate. We believe financial giving is to be a personal act of worship unto the Lord as He leads. It should be done privately and with a cheerfully generous heart. We also do not beg for money at The Well. God has always met our needs through the faithful generosity of His people. A detailed description of why, how and what we are to give as well as an explanation of tithing is outlined below.

  • Thank you for your support!

    God has been faithfully growing The Well for the past ten years. Our vision is truly to Love God, Love People and Serve both. Please know your financial gifts to The Well are greatly needed and appreciated as we pray and work toward this vision. We don’t desire a big building or expensive programs. We simply desire to grow according to God’s plan and to be able to meet the needs of those in our fellowship as well as those in our community. We promise to prayerfully seek to exercise wise stewardship over that which God has given us through your generosity.


  • As God’s people, we recognize that all good things come from and belong to God. We are simply caretakers of His creation and co-laborers in His plans for His Kingdom. We are also God’s children and so we are called to be givers, generous sharers of His grace and abundance. When we give, we obediently follow God’s directive. Indeed, giving is a very important part of Loving God, Loving People and Serving Both.

  • Understanding The "Tithe"

    The definition of a tithe is simply a tenth of one’s income. The giving of this monetary percentage is called “tithing”. The form of tithing most often addressed in Scripture is “tithing as covenant”. This practice of giving was specific to Israel as the covenant people of God. It was part of Mosaic Law (Leviticus 27:30-33, Numbers 18:21-32, Deuteronomy 14:2-29). Under the covenant, God promised to materially bless Israel for obedience and conversely judge them for disobedience (Deuteronomy 28 and Malachi 3:8-12)
