GIVE


 We Count On Generous & Supportive People!

We need YOU!
 

Please remember while we can't pass the plate for offering on Sundays, your offering to God of your resources - money and labor are still needed, particularly these days.

For financial offerings, please mail your check into the church or sign up for electronic giving - 
email Rev. Peters to set that up.

A Church Making a Difference in People's Lives and Beyond...

Using Unexpected Money for Unexpected Generosity!

Sharing some can help with extra expenses here, supplement mission giving that has been down this year (i.e. One Great Hour of Sharing) Just send your donation into the church noting where you would like it to go. You can also go to roxburychurch.org/give and give safely by credit card there.

 



How to Support Our Ministries and Good Works

9 Ways to Give!

 

 

2. 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 congregation members and friends – 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.

Important Benefits of Electronic Funds Transfer

The Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) program yields very significant benefits for our church and makes life easier for you:

It is great for youGive to God first.

Give while you are away.

Keeps you on track.

Convenient and secure.

Snowbirds, travelers, retirees, students, busy people - all love it.

 

It is great for your church:

Steadies cash flow.

Reduces the use of reserves.

Fewer checks to process, less work.

         Secure, efficient, and affordable.



3. Traditional  - Church Envelope or Offering Plate donation

This option is still available. You can request weekly ordering envelopes from the Church Office or you can place your donations in the offering plate on Sundays during worship. If you would like a yearly receipt for your donations, please be sure your name is noted on your check or envelope.

4. Paypal

We welcome one-time donations through PayPal. PayPal.Me/RoxburyChurch

5. Cash For Causes and Scrip! 

Since beginning the "Cash For Causes" program, participants have contributed thousands of dollars to the mission and work of our church. 

You can purchase cash cards online for groceries purchased at Stop and Shop, Big Y, or Shop Rite. We get a nice percentage here at the church and you receive a cash card at the full face value for the money spent. It is a win-win!!

The program does include more of your everyday items at places like Walmart, Staples, HomeGoods, Shell, Panera Bread, and Kohls. Store listing link. If you haven't participated in the Cash For Causes program before, this is a great time to try. Simply place your order, prepay the card(s), and shop. It's that simple. 


A complete listing of participating retailers is posted in Fellowship Hall, and can be found here or at raiseright.com

2021 Financial Pledge Form 

Completed pledge forms can be emailed to stewardship@roxburychurch.org

2021 Stewardship Letter

A Testimony: Vail Barrett, "Why I love this church and support it!"

 

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.

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