Giving by e-transfer means there are no processing fees and 100% of your donation is received by the church.
Donating stock after it has appreciated in value for a year allows you to deduct the full market value from your taxes and protects your realized gains from being subjected to long-term capital gains tax.
A “tithe” literally means “a tenth” or 10%. The practice of tithing is a biblical principle (Mal 3:10; Pro 3:9-10; Lev 27:30) in which we return our “first fruits” to God. Tithing is both an acknowledgement that all things come from and ultimately belong to God, and, confirmation of his lordship in every area of our lives – including our finances. Consistently tithing helps the local church expand the Kingdom of God and serves as an antidote to our tendency toward greed and materialism. As Jesus said, “where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
An “offering” is anything that we give over and above the tithe.
The Legacy Team is an outlet for those who have been called and equipped by God to give (over and above the tithe) to advance the cause of Christ and accelerate the vision of Connect Church.

“We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.” --Romans 12:6-8
