What We Believe about Giving

Our Philosophy

At Wooddale Church, we are committed to giving regularly to what God is doing here and around the world. It’s biblical and it’s a way that we can partner with God in his work. We believe individual giving should be proportionate to God’s individual blessings with tithing as a norm.

Biblically, we like to follow this approach:

But just as you excel in everything – in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in your love for us – see that you also excel in this grace of giving… Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. (2 Corinthians 8:7 and 9:7)

Be a Part of Something Big

God is doing incredible things through Wooddale and we love that you’re a part of it. It’s not about fancy buildings or getting bigger. And it is much more than simply keeping the lights on. It’s about Jesus—and his transforming power over broken lives. It’s about families being healed, marriages restored and relationships mended. It’s about making an impact in our communities and across the world. That’s why we do what we do. And that’s what your giving supports.
