As a church, we trust God to supply our needs through the generosity of his people. Our Finance Committee and Treasurer are committed to stewarding our finances well, and accountability is provided through a congregationally-approved budget and a yearly audit. Gifts to Christ Chapel are tax deductible.

Text an amount to 84321 to begin a text donation. The first time you do this, you will be prompted to connect your payment method.

Giving Online

Notes on Online Giving:

  • Planning Center Giving uses Stripe, a popular payment processor.

  • You can use either a Credit/Debit Card (CC) or Automated Clearing House (ACH), which is a form of electronic check.

  • The ACH method is a lower cost for Christ Chapel, but requires you know your bank and account routing numbers (contact your financial institution if you are unsure about these).

  • You may give once, or setup recurring giving at a variety of intervals.

  • Selecting to cover the card processing fees will increase your gift by the amount Stripe charges for this service, so your original gift amount will reach the church.

  • If you want to use the online giving service but need technical assistance, feel free to contact the Christ Chapel treasurer.
