We have been truly blessed by the spirit of generosity in our church. The dedication and joy our members have helping others inspires us on a daily basis. We believe that generosity means sacrificing for the sake of God and others. Not only is generosity measured in terms of monetary donations, but also our members’ willingness to donate their time and talent. We find that when we give to others so that they may flourish, our hearts bloom as well.

Ways to Give
There are many easy ways for you to give, including one-time gifts, text-to-give, online recurring giving and, of course, during our weekend worship services.
Your gift helps us live out our mission of
connecting every life to Jesus.
Why We Give
"Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this," says the LORD Almighty, "and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it." Malachi 3:10
Because of your generosity, we are able to have a meaningful impact not only within our own church, but throughout our larger community and world. Our responsible management of funds results in tangible, life changing events for people near and far. When there is a need, we are able to respond.
WRCC understands that people have a legitimate concern about what happens to money that is donated to churches. It is imperative to us that members are assured that their donations are used in a responsible and effective way.
The Annual Operating Budget is presented to the congregation in January. Each week a review of giving and resource needs occurs. Ministry leaders submit budget resource needs in writing and receive a "green light" to go or "red light" to HOLD, based on available funds.
A monthly review of our bank statements is performed by an external party in addition to an annual review of our financial statements by an independent CPA firm.
Ways to Give
Loose cash may be dropped in the offering tray. This anonymous donation will not appear on a Giving Statement. Cash placed in an offering envelope with the donor's first and last name, address and phone number will be recorded on a Giving Statement.
Checks can be made out to White River Christian Church. Please include the donor’s name and address.
Sign up through your bank to take advantage of this option. A check will be mailed directly from your bank to WRCC.
Online Giving through CCB (Church Community Builder)
A one-time gift or a recurring donation is available through CCB. White River accepts cash (ACH transaction from the donor’s bank to our bank) or debit card.
You can quickly and securely access your personal giving records and print your own IRS compatible giving statement. Donations are possible thru ACH (checking account) and bank debit card via recurring or one-time gifts. It is quick and convenient to establish recurring gifts and consistency helps White River's finances remain stable and predictable. All transactions are managed by our Financial Team, which administrates seamless reporting and entry into our accounting system.
- Where do I go to schedule a recurring gift?
Login to Church Community Builder and click the Give Button on the upper right. Select an option and set up your gifts on the appropriate schedule for your budget. You can choose to schedule a gift to be paid weekly, every two weeks, monthly, quarterly (once every three months) or annually. You can also give a one-time gift by setting the number of occurrences to '1.'
- Why is using my checking account for donations better for my church?
When you allow your gift to be withdrawn directly from your checking account, the church is charged a transaction fee of 50 cents. When you use your credit/bank card, there is an additional fee of 3-5% of the amount given charged to the church. For every $1,000 given, this is an extra $30-$50 (vendor fees) that the church never receives. These could be used for Kingdom work!
