We follow the Biblical teaching to give tithes (Malachi 3:10; Deuteronomy 14:22–26) and offerings (Deuteronomy 12:5–6; Luke 21:1–4) to the Lord for the harvest of souls.
The Harvest Tithe is something we give every week. When we give our Harvest Tithe we send laborers to reach the nearest harvest field. When we give the Harvest Tithe we are sending and going to our neighbors in Chesterfield, Powhatan, Richmond, and Amelia. Parkway also tithes ten percent from our Harvest Tithe to the SBC Cooperative Program to support church planting and missionary sending all over the world. We know we are not alone in the harvest.
The Harvest Offereings are the support for the special needs, ministry, and mission of Parkway Baptist Church. The Acts 1:8 Global Missions Offering, Church Planting Seed Offering, Next Space Offering, and Debt Reduction Initiative are all part of the Harvest Offering. When we give to these special offerings and initiatives we are giving to the Harvest. We highlight these offerings at various times through out the year, and we give to these offerings in addition to our Harvest Tithe. These offerings are not in competition with one another, but are all part of the Harvest. The Acts 1:8 Global Missions Offering and Church Planting Seed Offering supports Harvest going, the Next Space Offering supports Harvest equipping and Harvest sending, and Debt Reduction Initiative supports Harvest sending.
