GIVING | Why do we give?
Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 2 Corinthians 9:7
Every tenth of the land’s produce, grain from the soil or fruit from the trees, belongs to the LORD; it is holy to the LORD. Leviticus 27:30
At Canaan we practice tithing for the support of Christ’s Body, the church, as God commands. We recognize that giving at least 10% of our income is the Bible’s standard of giving.
Contributions are accepted through tithing, giving to our Elevate building fund, or contributing to the Great Commission Offering. To give online, please click or touch the GIVE icon above.
