Christ Lutheran Church
Wednesday, March 29, 2017
Christ Lutheran Church relies on the generous financial contributions of our members and visitors to do the work outlined in our mission statement – to be Gathering, Gifting and Sending Followers of Jesus Christ. We encourage annual pledging to the church, no matter the amount. Click here to go to the stewardship page explaining pledging.
One-Time GiftYou can give a one-time gift through a secure page that will pop up by clicking here. Simply fill in the information for the card you would like to use and click submit. You can also login to your CCB account and click the "Give" tab at the top of the page, which will give you the option to use either a card or a bank account. Click here if you need help.
Repeating GiftYou can also setup repeating gifts through your Church Community Builder account by clicking here. If you do not yet have a CCB account, click here. Once logged in you can click either of the buttons in the "Repeating Gift" box and fill out the form from there. Click here if you need help.
Other Ways to Give to the Church:
1. Envelopes will be provided upon request, designated with member names and giving numbers. Envelopes may be provided for weekly or monthly contributions.
2. Simply Giving is a program administered through Thrivent, whereby contributions are automatically debited from a designated bank account, or charged to a credit card. These contributions may be made weekly on Mondays or Fridays, or on the 1st and/or 15th of the month. Simply Giving is a wonderful program for the church as it helps in our budgeting process to know that contributions will be received on certain dates every month. Click here to print out the Simply Giving form and turn it in to the church office.
3. Online Bill Pay through members’ financial institutions is another program utilized by many CLC members. Checks come directly to the church office. Additionally, Christ Lutheran Church has a number of “Restricted” giving accounts,where members and visitors may designate funds to a specific program. For example,funds may be designated to ELCA World Hunger and other Benevolent programs, Youth programs such as our Senior High Mission Trip, and Outreach programs such as Harrington Elementary School. We ask that specific program donations be clearly designated on checks or giving envelopes, so proper credit may be made on the giving statement.
4. Thrivent Choice. Eligible members of Thrivent Financial for Lutherans are designated Choice Dollars, based on insurance premiums, contract values and Thrivent Financial volunteer leadership. Choice Dollars can be directed to thousands of nonprofit organizations nationwide, including your local congregation. There has been a change in the program by which Thrivent members direct their Choice Dollars: To direct Choice Dollars in the future, you have two easy options: 1) Log in to Thrivent.com/thriventchoice and select "Get Started." 2) Contact a representative from the Member Connection Center at 800-847-4836 and, when prompted, say "Thrivent Choice." When next prompted, say, "Choice Dollars." We urge all Thrivent members to continue to direct their Choice Dollars to Christ Lutheran Church. These funds have been extremely helpful to many ministries at CLC. Thank you!
