Excel in Giving is a program sponsored by the Michigan District Church Extension Fund and is an option to have your offering to the Lord automatically deducted from your checking or savings account. While this might initially sound a bit unorthodox, there are actually sound theological benefits to this.
- From a “first fruits” perspective, you can set your tithe aside at the beginning of the year and know that the first portion of your income will always be given to God.
- Even when you can’t make it to church because you are on vacation, sick, or at work, you can still be confident that your tithe is getting there.
- You don’t have to remember to bring your checkbook to church! This isn’t exactly theological, but it is nice.
