Your tithes and offerings allow us the opportunity to serve our body, community, and the world in Jesus's name.
Your financial gifts, big or small, are put to work in many important and functional ways, including our buildings, ministry materials, and staff. You may also know that we have a thriving youth group that ministers to teens within our church but also reaches into the lives of kids in the community, some of whom are unchurched and without family support. Our SALT program pours into the men of our church, encouraging spiritual and physical growth that in turn helps them to step into leadership roles within the church, community, and family. Our women's ministry is dedicated to creating opportunities for our ladies to grow both spiritually and relationally.
Your giving is integral to the ministry happening within Calvary, and we're so thankful for the support of what happens within our body. However, did you know that Calvary also prioritizes tithing 10% of our funds back into mission work? Some of last year's highlights are:
Community partnerships that support the work of Juneau Pregnancy Resource Center, Echo Ranch, and Love Inc.
Local missionary support that includes both short-term mission trips and the continued support of full-time Echo Ranch missionaries (including the Alderfers, Kilmers, and Schroeders)
Global missionary support includes:
Helping to fund the Cordero’s work in Nicaragua; sending a mission team to work alongside them; holding a pastors' training in order to support the local church in their efforts to more effectively reach their community
Together we raised $10,000 and helped Bethany Bibb to reach her goal of being fully supported for her upcoming long-term mission to France with Young Life.
"Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure—pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return."

A WORD ON GIVING
So what’s the deal with tithing? The word tithe simply means “one-tenth part.” Under the Law of Moses in the Old Testament, the Israelites were required to give three different 'tithes', totaling a little over 23 percent of their income. The first tithe was 10 percent of all of their possessions (Lev. 27:30–33; Num. 18:20–21), which was given to the Levites for Temple Ministry. A second tithe was taken from whatever produce was left after the first tithe was given. (Deut. 12:17–18; Lev. 27:30; Num. 18:21). Finally, a tithe was given once every three years to support the poor (Deut. 14:28–29). On top of these tithes were the voluntary freewill offerings given out of their own will and desire above and beyond their normal tithes (Ex. 35:29; Lev. 22:23; Ezra 3:5).
When it comes to the New Testament teaching on giving, we must realize that the Mosaic Law no longer binds us. This leads us to the question, “Should we still give according to the Old Testament system, or are we able to give less or even more?”
Concerning this, Paul wrote, “He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work” (2 Cor. 9:6–8).
As Christians who are no longer under the Law, we give because of the grace that God has given us. Paul describes the qualities of this benevolence as being generous (2 Cor. 8:2), willful (2 Cor. 8:3), directed by God (2 Cor. 8:5), shared (2 Cor. 8:6), active (2 Cor. 8:7), and motivated by love (2 Cor. 8:8). This kind of giving should not be done out of a “legalistic” mentality, but as the Lord leads you to give (2 Cor. 8:8).
Because of these reasons, we do not pass an offering plate around during service. We do not want anyone to feel like they are being harassed, or are obligated to pay for some service rendered, but rather as God would lead you to give. We do have a box for giving on the back table every Saturday, or you can mail your offering. You can also give online with either a on- time donation, or set up an automatic payment for your convenience.
