This giving is not giving according to greed, guilt, or compulsion, but according to grace. It is, in fact, a great privilege and responsibility for believers to invest their money in God's eternal kingdom work. At Richland Creek, we believe that giving should first be exercised through the local church.
Why Give Online?Giving is worship, but that worship does not have to be confined to a Sunday morning or any particular form of offering. New tools in electronic communication have made online giving an effective and meaningful way for people to give regularly and abundantly. Richland Creek wants to extend those tools to our members and guests.
Our Concerns About DebtYou will notice as you advance through our online giving process that Richland Creek does not accept credit card payments for tithes or offerings. We do not believe that people should incur debt in order to give to God's kingdom through the Creek, and we want to avoid putting a stumbling block in front of those who already struggle with credit card debt.
We do accept debit cards, check cards, e-checks, and ACH withdrawals through our online giving system.
Is This Method Secure?Absolutely. We have partnered with recognized industry leader Ardent Giving Solutions to provide the most up-to-date online giving portal. This means that each transaction exceeds industry standards for encryption and the safety of personal data.
"For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 8:38-39
