If you give money to the church-

do you want that money to go towards feeding the hungry or towards keeping up the church? I received some envelopes this month and noticed there was an extra for utilities and up keep and the other envelopes are used towards charity. I did not know that. I like the majority of the money goes to help other.

  • I would want to know how much the pastor was raking in before they starting asking for more money for utilities and upkeep.

  • I don't go to church, but my dad is the treasurer at his church and he says his church barely gets by with all the bills and upkeep and paying the pastor, who isn't raking in a ton. If I went to church I would probably ask that a portion go to each.

  • We just give what we can and let the Church decide. Usually there is a second collection I think every 2nd week of each month for utilities, so the majority is going to help others in some way shape or form.

  • Don't most pastors get all the money then pay the lights and heat and stuff on the church building? I know churches are tax-exempt......

  • If it is a good church I wouldn't care they need help too in the bills God knows what our intentions are so where ever the money goes is good enough for me.
