We believe in living generously and investing in the next here at Bethany as part of living vibrant life of loving God, loving others, and loving life.
The Old Testament instructs us to give back to God what belongs to Him, called a tithe which is the first 10% of our gross income. Malachi 3:10 promises if we bring the whole tithe into the storehouse (the Church), God will open up the windows of heaven and pour out a blessing – more than we can contain! The New Testament introduces giving above the tithe: generously giving over and above the tithe. We give our tithe as an act of worship and obedience and we give cheerfully (2 Corinthians 9:7) and out of a generous heart towards ministry (missions works, benevolence, special offerings, etc.)
Kingdom builders is a fund designated for local, national, and global projects that further the message of hope through Jesus in practical ways whether it’s supporting national or global missionaries, distributing food throughout Lenawee county, supporting local non-profits, or contributing to national organizations outside our county, we believe giving above and beyond our tithe can impact the world today and for eternity.

It takes Courage to Give
The word "tithe" is derived from the Hebrew word ma'aser and it literally means a tenth. In Malachi 3:10-11, God says "Bring the whole tithe to the storehouse that there may be food in My house." The 'storehouse' is the Old Testament picture of the New Testament church. So as New Testament believers, we worship the Lord with the tithe; or the ten percent.
The Church is told in Proverbs 3:9-10 to "honor the Lord with your wealth, with the first-fruits of all your crops and then your barns will be filled to overflowing." As you give the blessings of God follow.
