Tithes & Offerings
At Blue Sky we believe that the Bible calls Christians to give a tithe, or a tenth of our income back to God to support the local church we are a part of, and therefore we do not ask visitors to give money to the church. Giving should be done as worship, with recognition of God's provision for us, understanding that we live in total dependence on Him for all that we have. Offerings are given above and beyond the tithe and are brought as worship to God to further support His mission through the church.
2 Corinthians 9:7
Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
How to Give
1) PAY WITH A CHECK
The best method is simply to write a check and mail it to Blue Sky. This way you can physically offer your tithe to God as worship each month as an intentional act of worship and obedience to him.
2) ONLINE BILL-PAY
If you find that you are regularly forgetting to write your tithe check each month, it can be a good option to use your banks online bill-pay system.
Bill-pay allows your bank to mail a check directly to Blue Sky each month. To set up bill-pay you should select the “pay an individual” option or set up a new payee. Here is the information your bank might require to set up bill-pay to Blue Sky:
- Name (Payee Name): Blue Sky Church
- Address (Payee Address): 1720 130th Ave NE, Bellevue, WA 98005-2272
- Phone Number: (425)556-9399
If there is a space to enter a note or a message, you can simply put whether it’s a tithe or offering.
Below are some common bill-pay links. If you need more help, contact your bank to get set up.

3) ONLINE WITH TITHE.LY
The last option is giving through Tithe.ly on your mobile phone. This is a convenient way to give your tithe, but there is a small fee associated with the transaction. So that all of the tithe goes to God through the local church it is being given, Tithe.ly has added a small check-box which allows the giver to cover the convenience fee.
