At Risen, we desire to lead lives of radical generosity because we’ve been given more than we deserve in Christ. The things we have been given are a display of God’s grace toward us. That means we are not owners, rather, stewards. We desire to be a church that responds to this grace by being generous stewards of our time, talent and treasure. Generosity strengthens our devotion to Christ and frees us to live open handedly with the gifts God gives us.
There are several benefits to online giving for both you and Risen Church:
Faithfully Honoring God
When you sign up to give online you are deciding in advance to faithfully give. The Bible teaches that we are to honor God with the “first fruits” of our labor (Proverbs 3:9). By setting up a recurring contribution that is scheduled to come out of your account on the day you specify, you can ensure that your first fruits are faithfully given back to God. (1 Corinthians 16:1-2)
You won’t have to remember whether you gave this month or send in an offering by mail when you’re on a trip.
We utilize an encrypted secure website for our giving portal to ensure protection of your sensitive personal information and giving history.
You have the ability to quickly see your online giving history directly through our giving portal instead of having to contact our Finance Department for a personalized report.
