Tithes and offerings
Have you ever wondered where your tithes and offerings go?
Tithes is sent to the local conference to be distributed to the Seventh-day Adventist Church. You can decide where your offerings go if you place it in a tithe envelope and designate on the envelope its location. Loose offerings, any money placed in the offering plate, will go to the special offering for that specific Sabbath.
At the Tempe SDA Church, two Sabbaths a month the loose offering goes to the Local Church Budget, money used to keep the local Tempe church running.
