Offertory Sentences

Rather than say, “Let’s take up the offering,” it is best to introduce the offering very simply with a Scripture verse related to the giving of our tithes and offerings.

Here are some suggested verses.

Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal. Matthew. 6: 19, 20

Let every person do according as is disposed in his heart, not grudgingly, or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver. II Corinthians 9:6, 7.

To do good, and to distribute, forget not; for with such sacrifices God is well pleased. Hebrews 13:16.
