Church kicks out 92-year-old woman for failure to tithe
BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) – A 92-year-old woman is no longer allowed to worship at the church where she was a member for more than 50 years because she was not tithing.
said that was the reason she was kicked out of Bainbridge’s
First African Baptist Church
Her family members said they hope the situation will bring change to churches across the nation.
“Josephine King is no longer considered a member of the First African Baptist Church of Bainbridge, Georgia,” read Gerald Simmons, as he skimmed over the letter addressed to his aunt.
The letter, signed by Senior
Pastor Derrick Mike
, stated that Ms. King “has shown non-support” towards the church in the areas of “constant and consistent financial and physical participation.”
“She was stunned. She was disappointed. She was shocked,” said Simmons.
Simmons also noted that his aunt isn’t the first person to receive a letter of removal for not tithing, and hopes her story will shed some light on the policy.
“You have to have money to make these churches run, but it’s not about money,” Simmons said. “It’s about God. You have to put God first.”
