The following are some of our most often asked questions. If you have a question that is not answered here, please send your question to firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is a tithe?
The word "tithe" actually means "one tenth." To "tithe" is to give one tenth or 10 percent of your income. The Bible teaches that 100 percent of all that we have comes from God and is completely His. He asks us to bring 10 percent of what He as entrusted to our management to the church, the place we receive our spiritual guidance and covering. In His generosity, He provides for us to keep 90 percent. A tithe is 10 percent. Giving more than the 10 percent standard would be considered an "offering." (Malachi 3:8-10; 1 Chronicles 29:11; Matthew 6:21).
Will I receive a record of my contributions?
Yes. Stonecreek periodically mails its contributors statements as well as an annual Record of Contributions for charitable giving tax purposes. Records of Contribution will be mailed to your home address.
Does Stonecreek Church have an annual audit?
Yes. Stonecreek engages the services of an independent audit firm on an annual basis. The purpose of the audit is to safeguard the financial integrity of Stonecreek's ministry and leadership and strengthen the practices and procedures of Stonecreek's business office in accordance with biblical stewardship and accepted accounting principles. Financial statements are reviewed and approved regularly by Stonecreek's Elder Ministry Team as well as Stonecreek's banking relationships.
What are Stonecreek's privacy and refund policies?
