A tithe of everything from the land, whether grain from the soil or fruit from the trees, belongs to the LORD; it is holy to the LORD. — Leviticus 27:30

The Bible teaches us that we worship the Lord with our tithe. When we give the first 10% of our income to the church, we put God first in our lives.  Tithing is an act of worship that expresses our gratitude, faith, and love for others.  When we are called to give over and above our tithe, we do so as offering.
In order for FBCSO to continue to serve our church family and the wider community, please remain faithful to God with the tithe, and if you have been blessed by our ministry, please consider giving above and beyond. As always, FBCSO will be a good steward of the tithe and all giving, reporting our church finances at our quarterly church business meetings.
