Church gives 10 percent of proceeds
from Omaha World-Herald
Flatland Church is practicing what it preaches. The Omaha, Neb., church announced Sunday that it will share a portion of a $1 million gift with other nonprofit groups. Co-pastors Bart Wilkins and Jeff Baker told their congregation at Easter services that $100,000 soon will be spread among 30 organizations. That's in keeping with the church's suggestion that members of the congregation give 10 percent of their income to support the church. "We knew we wanted to do something consistent with our core convictions," Baker said. "Sharing our good fortune by tithing 10 percent (to other groups) does that."
