At CrossRidge Church we believe giving is a vital part of one's spiritual formation and maturity. It is part of our everday worship to Him and it requires two things of us:
Faith - Giving is an active expression of my faith. It recognizes God as my True Provider. It affirms my confidence in His ability to supply all I need. It is an act of gratitude and dependence and allows me to partner with God and His work through my church and in the world.
Faithfulness - Giving requires the highest standard of personal integrity and discipline. It is not a casual or occasional thing. In 2 Corinthians 8-9, the Bible teaches us to give willingly, generously and cheerfully. Our giving pattern should reflect a regular and systematic plan. In Malachi 3:10, we learn God's standard of the tithe—the first tenth being set apart in all of my earnings as a gift to God. Through our tithes and offerings, we prove faithful in the stewardship of all God has provided for us.
We welcome you to give whatever God has called you to, however God has called you to. CrossRidge Church provides different ways to give financially.
During a regular Sunday service, we take up an offering at the end of the service. You can place your tithes and offerings in any of the plates which are passed down each row. If you have filled out a Communication Card or Prayer Card you can place that in the plate as well.
You may drop off your tithes and offerings to the church office during regular business hours or you can mail it our mailing address below.

CrossRidge Church has online giving available to those who desire to use it. CrossRidge strongly teaches that living "debt free" is a worthy goal for all Christians. We offer online giving only as a convenience and not as a way to circumvent sound biblical money management principles or in any way to incur debt. Users of online giving are responsible for setting up and controlling their online giving options themselves. They can designate where their giving goes and the frequency in which they give. They will be able to constantly track their online giving by logging in and viewing their history. Note online records will not reflect any manual giving. Online giving is secure and tax deductible. Online giving allows you to set-up your giving using an automatic bank draft to your account. Credit cards are not permitted.
Yes, you can specify whether you want your contribution made one time, weekly, twice per month, monthly, quarterly, or yearly. You can set up as many schedules as you would like, so it is possible to give a monthly gift as well as a weekly one.
Yes, we will mail your year-end giving statement directly to your home address.
You can edit or delete a scheduled contribution at anytime, including your bank information, date, frequency and amount.
We've taken steps to ensure that the giving process is safe and secure from beginning to end. All of your giving data is secured by SSL encryption. SSL is an acronym for "Secure Socket Layer", a security protocol that provides communications privacy over the Internet. It is the same technology used by banks and e-commerce companies such as Amazon.com to keep your information safe and secure during transactions.
