Giving at Community
We appreciate your taking a few minutes to familiarize yourself with how Community Church approaches giving.
Community Church believes giving is a matter of the heart and therefore will never use guilt, shame, or manipulation to get people to give. Every person’s giving is kept confidential by our bookkeeper.
Community Church does not tell people how much to give. We encourage everyone to trust fully in God and obey His teachings in the Bible and His promptings about giving.

Others of you may simply want to know what various methods of giving are available to you here at Community. Here is a brief summary:
1. Electronic Giving with Tithe.ly
You can now give simply and easily using Tithe.ly for your tithes, offerings, and special gifts!
2. Giving envelopes
Community Church will provide giving envelopes in which to place your cash or check. Upon request, you will be given an envelope number and envelopes will be mailed to you in three month increments. An itemized giving statement will be available at the end of the year for tax purposes. Additional giving envelopes are available at the Welcome Center.
Cash is welcomed. However, when giving cash please realize that there is no way to put a name to your giving. Thus we will not be able to give you an itemized giving statement at the end of the year, unless you use our giving envelopes.
4. Loose Check
If you choose this option, your contribution is recorded under your name and an itemized giving statement will be available at the end of the year for tax purposes.
5. Bill-Pay Check from your bank or credit union
A bill paying feature is available at most financial institutions. Using this option generates a check electronically from your account to Community Church at a frequency and amount directed by you. This option gives you the opportunity to maintain a consistency in giving, even when you are unable to attend on a particular weekend. Please be aware that there may be potential fees generated by this type of transaction.
