Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. (2 Corinthians 9:7)
Giving can transform your heart and transform other lives. Giving brings joy; but the greatest joy of giving comes as you experience the alignment of your heart with God's will for your life.
To give online, first you need to set up an account within Christ Church's inFellowship system. Please review the following to help you get started.
You will not pay fees when giving online and 100% of your contribution is tax-deductible. Christ Church does pay fees associated with each transaction, so if you wish to maximize your donation, please consider the processing fees noted below:
Our membership system (Fellowship One) provides the functionality to make online donations and view contribution data. The system utilizes the most current encryption technology and ensures user authenticity by verifying each account request via a confirmation email. Access is granted to view your giving history only after your email and name have been matched to existing data in our system. If the name and email you enter do not match our records, we will contact you to confirm your information prior to granting you view access.
Please help us keep your information safe by protecting your login information. Christ Church will never call you to ask for your login information.
Your information is secure, will remain private and will never be provided to third parties, other than our vendor who processes scheduled contributions.
You can schedule new contributions at any time and can modify or cancel those contributions at any time prior to the date they are scheduled. Once the contribution has been processed, however, it cannot be canceled.
In the fall of each year our members are given the opportunity to make a financial commitment for the next year. These pledges are important to our planning since they are used to establish our ministry budgets.
Your pledge commitment helps us to develop our general operating budget. You can make your commitment online or by completing a pledge commitment card located at the Welcome Center or in a pew in the Sanctuary.
An endowment fund is a permanent fund that exists to provide long term support to the ministries and mission of the church. This is a permanent "nest egg" to perpetuate the Church's values and long term goals. Our endowment fund is a permanent fund and only the earnings are spent. When funds are available they will support projects above and beyond normal budgeted items.
The elected Christ Church United Methodist Permanent Endowment Fund Committee oversees the investments and determines how the funds are distributed and used.
Memorial gifts are cash donations made to the church in memory of a loved one or one held in high regard who has died.
Memorial gifts can be made to the Christ Church Endowment Fund, as a gift to the General Operating Fund of the church or as a restricted gift for a specified item in the church. Persons wishing to make a memorial donation are asked to speak with a pastor of the church or the church senior accountant. The church communications will recognize the gift with acknowledgement being sent to the donor family for tax filing documentation.
Gifts "In Honor" are cash donation made to the church in honor of a loved one or one held in high regard. It differs from a Memorial in that it is a gift for one still living. These gifts can be made to the Christ Church Endowment Fund, to the General Operating Fund of the church or as a restricted gift for a specified item in the church. Persons wishing to make an "In Honor" donation are asked to speak with a pastor of the church or the church senior accountant. The church communications will recognize the gift with the acknowledgement being sent to the donor family for tax filing documentation.
