“Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” (Paul, the Apostle, 2 Corinthians 9:6)

The Saint Matthew Stewardship team encourages the members of the community to grow as stewards of God’s resources, with a special concern for deepening our financial support, time commitments, and use of our God-given talents in the service of the community.

In today’s world, many of us are not comfortable talking about money or our time commitments, especially in the context of church.

Saint Matthew is “a new expression of the Catholic Faith in our time.” We want to share that new expression of Catholicism not only with the community today, but with future generations seeking an authentic Catholic faith experience. That takes time and money.

The only income our church has is what each of us provides from our own abundance. When we give to the church it is an opportunity to make a difference today, as well as for generations to come. It’s not about us; it’s about those we feel compelled to reach.

Offering our gifts to God is not a casual process. In fact, it is an act of worship; and so our commitment is a type of sacrificial sacrament. When we make a financial or time commitment to the church, it is a type of sacrifice—a giving of ourselves, in a sense.

Regular sacrificial giving is an important spiritual discipline. While our giving is a sacrificial act of worship it is also private, between you and God.

People are often curious about a very simple question: How much should I give?

In consideration of all God has given to us and the sacrifice that Christ made on the Cross for us we want to give sacrificially so that it has meaning in our daily lives. Ultimately, the answer is between you and God, but we at Saint Matthew use the Biblical guideline of a 10% tithe as a standard to strive for.

Granted, 10% of our income seems like a high standard, but many of our people—not rich folks, but regular people like you and me—have come to a tithing relationship with God. They did it in the same way that all large goals are accomplished in life, in small steps.

Here is an example:

  1. By using the chart below, we identify our current percentage of giving.
  2. Let’s say we make $50,000 per year and we give $20 per week.
  3. We can see from the chart that is about 2% of our income.
  4. If we were to increase from $20 per week to $30 per week (the difference being about the cost of a couple lattes and scones) we could make a jump from 2% to 3%
  5. Well done good and faithful servant!

The point is that over time a tithing relationship with God can be done…or at least we can get ourselves moving in that direction.

So there you have it. To summarize, at Saint Matthew we believe that what each person gives (not only money, but time as well) is between the person and God.* We believe that sacrificial giving is important. And we believe the Biblical standard of a 10% tithe on income is the giving goal to strive. And we know regular folks can grow into that. It doesn’t mean you have to it. It’s just our approach.

*In full disclosure, please know that the church Finance administrator(s) may be aware just because they handle checks, etc.
