Malachi 3:10 (NIV)
“Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.”
The word of God calls for each one of us to “go and make disciples of all nations”, otherwise known as the Great Commission. This is the primary mission of the Church. The most effective and visible way to accomplish this mission is through the presence of the church itself.
The reality is that the cost to operate a building like the church is significant. Salaries, utility bills, maintenance expenses and more must all be paid to stay in operation. In addition, some money must also be used in support of the Great Commission. Did you know that Church In the Acres is a tithing church? 10 percent of all tithes and offerings received from the church congregation are used in support of local, national, and world charities and mission efforts.

Here Are Some Ways To Support Your Church
Making your donation through Facebook is easy, but you will need to have a Facebook account to use this option. Once you are logged in and on the Church In the Acres Facebook page, look for the button near the top of the main page. Unlike PayPal, the church receives 100% of your donation, although, it can take a month or two before the funds are made available to the church. To access the church Facebook page, click on the Facebook icon below.
PayPal is one of the easiest ways to give your donation to the church. They accept all major credit cards. The donation will be available immediately to the church, however, PayPal will deduct a small administrative fee from the donation. You have the option in the donation to add additional funds to compensate for this fee. When using a credit card, you are NOT required to have a PayPal account to use this option. To donate via PayPal, click the button below.
Food Gift Cards
If you already shop at one of the Big Y grocery stores, this is a great way to help the church, and the best part is, there is NO cost to you! You pay for a $100 gift card and you get a $100 gift card. For every $100 purchased through the church, Big Y will donate $5. Gift cards are available in $25, $50, and $100 amounts, however larger amounts can be special ordered. The gift cards must be picked up and paid for at the church. They are available for purchase after both Sunday services or can be purchased at the church office during normal business hours.
Periodically throughout the year, the church will conduct events to help raise funds for the church. It might be a Tag Sale, Working for one of the Big E vendors, or the Friday night BINGO game. Whatever the event, show support for your church by participating and helping to make all the events a success. Remember that you ARE the church united in the body of Christ.
