At City United, we believe giving is
an essential form of Worship.
Why we give
God is generous and so he calls us to be as well. What we do with what God has given us shows the world where our hearts are at and helps proclaim the gospel. We want to glorify God with every area of our lives, and that includes what we do with our finances.
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Matthew 6:21
Tithing (giving 10% of your income) is a reminder that God is the supplier of everything we have. It is also God’s personal invitation to an outpouring of His blessing in our life. Ten percent of everything we have belongs to the Lord.
"Bring all the tithes into the storehouse so there will be enough food in my Temple. If you do," says the Lord of Heaven's Armies, "I will open the windows of heaven for you. I will pour out a blessing so great you won't have enough room to take it in! Try it! Put me to the test!"
This is the only place in Scripture where God tells us to put Him to the test. In other words, He’s saying, “Go ahead. I dare you. See if you can out-give me.”

WAYS TO GIVE
Give In Person
Some people prefer to give in person. When you're on campus, we have secure giving boxes where you can tithe using cash or check. Just place your donation in the box using the giving envelope.
Mail It In
If snail mail is your preferred method, then we gladly provide you with a postage-paid envelope. Just use the giving envelope provided in your program each week. No giving envelope handy? No problem. You can mail the check to 194 Electric Avenue, Lunenburg, MA 01462.
You pay your bills with a push of a few buttons so we've made it easy for you to tithe in the same way. Watch these quick videos below to learn how.
