We encourage all of those who are part of our Church family to give—not out of obligation but out of a spirit of worship. Your gifts allow God's work to be done in our midst, in our community, and in the world around us.
Your information is held securely by an SSL encrypted connection. This information will remain private and will never be given away to third parties, other than to process your scheduled contributions.
There are many easy ways for you to give, including one-time gifts, text-to-give, online recurring giving and, of course, during our worship services.
Your gift helps us live out our vision to serve the world.
Jesus lifted up the value of giving for us: "keep in mind the words of the Lord Jesus, for He said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ " Acts 20:35
As Christians we understand that all good things we have come from God. And God counts on us to share these gifts for good work near and far. Through our offerings and tithes we show our love of God and neighbor. Each year we ask our partners to commit a portion of their income in support of God’s work through Cross Winds. Why do we do this?
Absolutely. Any personal or financial information you enter is encrypted using SSL security – the same state-of-the-art security measures used by online retailers, banks, and other financial institutions.
We accept donations from credit/debit cards as well as your Bank Account (our recommendation). While we’re happy to accept your donation by any means, Bank Account donations cost significantly less, allowing more of your gift to go towards ministry.
In addition to the Online Bank Account option, you also have the option to set up Bank Account donations by completing the form at this link and returning it to the church office. The form option has no convenience fee.
No. That said, we do recommend creating one so that you can view your online giving history. Also, you will be asked to create an account if you’d like to setup recurring donations.
Yes. You will be emailed a donation receipt each time you give. Again, we recommend creating an account so you can view all your online giving history.
No. That said, for very large gifts, we recommend you contact us to ensure your gift is processed in a timely fashion. (Our internal giving security can flag large donations for security reasons).
