The goal for Chrisitan giving is 10% of one's income. At East Lake, we recognize that we must grow in the spirit of giving just as we do in other areas of discipleship. We do hold up the Biblical standard of the tithe and encourage people to move toward it prayerfully and intentionally. At the same time, we praise God for all the gifts that are received into our ministry, both large and small, and we believe giving is a very personal matter of faith and commitment.
