Many small churches suffer with poor finances and never know if they are going to be able to pay their bills. At Drakes, God has truely blessed us. And to show that we tithe 10% of the weekly tithe and offerings and donate it to various organizations and ministries each month. We see God multiplying these other ministries and has truely blessed us by letting us part take in some of these great ministries. Here is the tithing calendar for 2014.
