Through the Phases

Do you ever feel like you’re just winging it as a parent? We have too (and still do sometimes)!
 
Our Parenting Through the Phases class is designed to help get you out of a place of overwhelm when it comes to parenting your kids, and into a place of understanding and power!  Sometimes the only things you need to thrive are the right tools and this class will give you just that!  We will cover birth through high school and will unpack what phase your kids are in and how to connect with them and help them grow!
 
 Pastor Shane will cover the Birth through Elementary phase and Pastor Jimmy will be covering the Jr. High and High School Phase. Our hope is that you will leave feeling prepared and confident to meet your child’s needs and navigate through the sometimes complicated stages of parenting. 
 
The class will be held at TWC South in Youth Hall Thursday, September 26th from 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm and the cost is $10 per family. We will provide childcare as well. It’s just a Phase, so don’t miss it!

About John E. Thomas

John and Dawna Thomas were radically saved out of the drug culture in 1996. Personally mentored by John Paul Jackson, they’ve been on staff with or have worked alongside Streams Ministries since 2004. John pastored The Bridge Metrowest (planted by John Paul) for five years before he and Dawna stepped out into full-time itinerant ministry. After John Paul passed away, John began to work more closely with the Streams leadership team and in 2016 was asked to become the president of Streams Ministries.

With his background as a pastor and a minister in various settings around the world, John has a unique perspective on prophetic ministry and the global Body of Christ. He desires to see the Church rise up in her authority and in the full power of the Holy Spirit, and his passion for God’s heart undergirds everything he does. He wants to help the Bride of Christ respond with fervent devotion to the One who called her. John co-authored The Art of Praying the Scriptures: A Fresh Look at Lectio Divina with John Paul Jackson and has also written courses on prophetic ministry, dream interpretation, and the Kingdom of God. As president of Streams Ministries, he ministers internationally to help restore the awe of God to a world that has lost its wonder. He and Dawna live outside of Dallas, Texas.

Tithing FAQs

FAQ’s about Tithing

What is Tithing and Tithe?

It is a tenth of your income.
Leviticus 27:30, TLB. “A tenth of the produce of the land, whether grain or fruit, is the Lord’s, and is holy.”

What is tithe used for? In the Old Testament, the tithe was used to support the priests. 

Numbers 18:20-21, NKJV. “Then the LORD said to Aaron: “You shall have no inheritance in their land, nor shall you have any portion among them; I am your portion and your inheritance among the children of Israel. “Behold, I have given the children of Levi all the tithes in Israel as an inheritance in return for the work which they perform, the work of the tabernacle of meeting.

Does God need our tithe? No. 

Psalm 50:10-12, NKJV. “For every beast of the forest is Mine, and the cattle on a thousand hills. I know all the birds of the mountains, and the wild beasts of the field are Mine. If I were hungry, I would not tell you; for the world is Mine, and all its fullness.”

Why should I tithe? Tithing is a way of teaching us that God must be our first priority. 

Deuteronomy 14:22-23, TLB. “You must tithe all of your crops every year. Bring this tithe to eat before the Lord your God at the place he shall choose as his sanctuary; this applies to your tithes of grain, new wine, olive oil, and the firstborn of your flocks and herds. The purpose of tithing is to teach you always to put God first in your lives.”  Your money tells you where your heart is.

When should I tithe? We are to return the tithe to God first—before we start spending money on other things. 

Proverbs 3:9, TLB. “Honor the Lord by giving him the first part of all your income.”

Christ endorsed tithing. 

Matthew 23:23, NKJV. “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faith. These you ought to have done, without leaving the others undone.”

Tithing in the Bible

How does Paul say the gospel ministry is to be supported? 

1 Corinthians 9:13-14, TLB. “Don’t you realize that God told those working in his temple to take for their own needs some of the food brought there as gifts to him? And those who work at the altar of God get a share of the food that is brought by those offering it to the Lord. In the same way the Lord has given orders that those who preach the Gospel should be supported by those who accept it.”

Returning the tithe to God helps us remember that He is the owner of everything. 

Psalm 24:1, NKJV. “The earth is the LORD’s, and all its fullness, the world and those who dwell therein.”

God is the source of all our wealth. 

Deuteronomy 8:18, NKJV. “And you shall remember the LORD your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.

God says we rob Him if we don’t give tithe and offerings. 

Malachi 3:8, NKJV. Will a man rob God? Yet you have robbed Me! But you say, ‘ In what way have we robbed You?’ In tithes and offerings.  When we refuse to tithe, we remove God’s hand from our finances.

Do I tithe when in debt? We should pay what we owe to God first, and God will help us take care of our debts.

Psalm 50:14-15, NKJV. “Offer to God thanksgiving, and pay your vows to the Most High. Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me.”

What if I can’t afford to pay tithe? You will never be able to afford to tithe… until you tithe.

Malachi 3:10, NKJV. Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and try Me now in this,” says the LORD of hosts, “ If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it.

God owns all the money in the world. 

Haggai 2:8, NKJV. “‘The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine,’ says the LORD of hosts.”

God asks us to give voluntary offerings for His work—in addition to the tithe. 

, Psalm 96:8, NKJV. “Give to the LORD the glory due His name; bring an offering, and come into His courts.

We should give to God’s work willingly.  

2 Corinthians 9:7, NKJV. “So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver..”
What if I think the church is corrupted, am I still required to tithe and give offerings? The temple practices were corrupt in Christ’s day, but Jesus still recognized the offerings as for God.  
Luke 21:3-4, NKJV. “ So He said, “Truly I say to you that this poor widow has put in more than all; for all these out of their abundance have put in offerings for God, but she out of her poverty put in all the livelihood that she had.”

YOU CAN’T OUT GIVE GOD!

Luke 6:38, NKJV. “Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.”

We should give in proportion to the blessing God has given us.

Deuteronomy 16:17, NKJV. “Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the LORD your God which He has given you.
