Giving At Christ Church

Giving is one of the fundamental ways in which we demonstrate our love and gratitude to God.  When you give, you support the mission of Christ Church to connect people to Jesus Christ down the hall, around the corner and around the world.

Ways To Give



You can manage your giving at Christ Church through your REALM account. Set up recurring donations, one-time gifts, and view your giving history.

recurring giving


Recurring Giving is the best way to fund the mission and ministries of Christ Church.  Recurring Giving can be set up on a schedule that works for you, with the flexibility to track and manage your giving history.  


You can give directly with your smartphone through text. You can set up a one time gift or schedule a recurring gift.

Text CCGIFT and the amount of your donation to 73256.
(ex – CCGIFT $50)

You will receive a text in response with a link to complete your donation.

When you click the link, it will open a page with dropdown boxes where you can select how you would like to designate your gift (General Fund, Network of Caring, Sanctuary Renovations, etc). You can even select multiple funds if you would like to divide your gift between multiple funds.

When you have finished entering the donation information for the first time, you will be directed to enter your payment and billing information. This should not be something you need to do every time unless you choose to not allow the information to be saved.

When complete, you will receive a receipt number and confirmation via text and email. 


We take an offering at each worship service. Just place your cash or check in an offering bag during the offering time.

FAQs About Giving at Christ Church

What is the difference between a tithe and an offering?

A tithe is the first tenth of your income that you return to God, which enables him to move on our behalf in the area of blessings. An offering is any gift above and beyond the amount of the tithe. 

Will I receive a contribution statement?

Yes, as long as you do not give anonymously, statements will be available online.  For a hard copy please contact our Financial Administrator.
