Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.

Malachi 3:10 (NIV)

Tithing Is More Than Giving

The word "tithe" literally means tenth or 10%. Tithing, or giving ten percent of your income, isn't merely giving something to God. It's an act of obedience and it’s giving back what was His to begin with. The Bible says tithing is a reminder that God is the supplier of everything. It teaches us to always put God first in our lives.

Offering Beyond the Tithe

An "offering" is anything you give beyond 10%. We support many missions and projects that help teach the Word of God and to reach the lost. If you would like to make an “offering”, you can give additionally to the general budget, or you can make a designated gift to a specific project like these listed below:

AWANA 

The mission of AWANA is to help "reach kids, equip leaders and change the world for God." Our hope is that all club members will develop faith in Jesus Christ as their personal Savior, and then build on that foundation to become obedient servants of God.

Beyond Our Walls

This is a wonderful ministry that feeds and clothes the children that are in need within our Vernon Parish schools.   Schools are given uniforms and bags with food to provide for these children.

CIA

Compassion In Action is another great mission at East.  Some support financially, others write cards, bake cookies, crochet/make baby blankets, drive others to the doctor, sing for nursing home residents, make visits, arrange flowers, help someone at their home, call, or most importantly, pray for others.  

Children’s Ministry

If you’d like to sponsor a child to go to camp or a special project please donate here.

Elevate

Elevate is our new and exciting modern worship service.  They need financial assistance so they can purchase needed sound and lighting equipment.

OWOM

The ELBC people have always been passionate about having a gospel impact locally, regionally, nationally, and globally – for that I am so thankful. East has long been a faith family that exudes a willingness to give, serve, and go!

Together As One

This is our building fund to help pay off our student building loan.

VBS

VBS takes many resources, both financially and through volunteers, to be successful each year.  For some children VBS is the only opportunity they will have to hear about Jesus’ love so we really go all out each year to make our VBS amazing!

Youth Ministry

If you’d like to sponsor a youth to go to D-Now, Mission Fuge or other special events, please donate here.
