That there will be a reward following the giving we are also assured by Jesus in a direct promise "Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, shall they give unto your bosom. For with what measure ye mete it shall be measured to you again. Luke 6:38"
Every month UCPC tithes 10% of our total income. The tithe funds are divided equally between Unity Worldwide Ministries, Silent Unity, Southeast Unity Ministries, and a local charitable organization. During the school year July through April) that local organization is our Adopt-A-School program with Willow Oaks Elementary School. This summer the Board selected Rachel's Kids as the beneficiary of our May and June funds.
