Through our offerings and tithes, we demonstrate in a tangible way our love for God and our neighbors. Each year, we ask our members to commit a percentage of their income (traditionally called a tithe) in support of our church’s ministry and mission. We do this for three reasons:
- All we have is a gift from God, so we believe that giving to God’s work is an act of worship.
- At FUMC| Downtown Bentonville, giving is an expectation of membership. The church does not specify how much an individual should give, but we hope each person will commit a percentage of their income and increase that amount as they are able.

Annual giving makes possible: a place for worship, programs for children, youth and adults. Bible studies, small groups, pastoral care and support, mission trips and community projects.
