“The point is this: the one who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and the one who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each of you must give as your have made up your mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”

-II Corinthians 9:6-7

At Santa Cruz Valley, living a life filled with  generosity is a gift to both the give and those who receive. Tithing is the spiritual discipline of giving 10% of our income to others. This is the Biblical standard as generosity is recorded in scripture.  When practiced this spiritual discipline guarantees a generous heart and a life free from greed. It teaches us that the practice of gratitude is a genuine gift to the giver.

We do not ask people to practice tithing because the church needs it. We practice tithing because we need it. It allows us to grow in freedom and grace in a way we cannot without it.

We ask that all of those who call Santa Cruz Valley their home to join us in the practice of giving generously, which leads to tithing, or the intentional practice of giving 10% of your income to your church. We are confident that you will be blessed by this practice in ways you have not yet imagined. We give joyfully through pledging to the general budget and through giving our tithes and offerings.  If you’d like to pledge at any point throughout the year,  please print a copy of the pledge card below and return it to the office.

If you are not associated with our community of faith and are just perusing the website we want to encourage you to find a place where your tithe can make a positive difference. We promise you, it will make a huge impact for good in your life!
