Thank you for supporting the Roxbury Congregational Church. Your gifts make a tremendous difference in the lives of our Church and community, and help ensure that the Church will continue to offer a main-line protestant ministry in Roxbury.

 

Our supporters give out of their desire to strengthen the Church, their wish to give something back to the community, and their commitment to ensuring that future congregation members and their children will benefit from the same opportunities past generations enjoyed.

 

How do you relate to money? Jesus spoke more about money than most everything else in the gospels.(Most was about the Kingdom of God) He talked about it so much because he knew how money can compete for our primary allegiance to God.

A Money Autobiography may be helpful to look at how we view money.

 

How to Support Our Ministries

1. Electronic Funds Transfer program for your pledge

Our church is embracing technology and has adopted a giving option that may be more convenient for many of our parishioners – the Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) Program.  It will work in the same manner as the programs offered by local gas and electric and many insurance and mortgage companies.

 You choose a donation frequency: weekly, semimonthly, or monthly.  Indicate the amount of the contribution you wish to make. Then complete the remainder of the Authorization Form, mail it to the church office or drop it in the offering and we will arrange for your credit card, savings or checking account to be debited as you select. All done confidentially.
