Online giving is available for a one-time gift or scheduled recurring gifts. In Proverbs 3:9 we are taught to honor the Lord with the “First Fruits” of our labor. 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 given back to God.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. If we want to help people get out of debt, why does Crossroads accept credit card donations?
A. Used within the parameters, debit and credit cards can be an efficient tool for payments and purchases. Many people utilize them in place of checks or cash throughout the month, and then pay off the balance in full. For these people, we offer the option of using a debit or credit card to give. We strongly discourage those who have ongoing credit card debt from exercising this option.
Q. Are there Non-Cash Giving options to give the church?
A. Yes, Crossroads also accepts non-cash gifts. Some examples of non-cash gifts are stocks, bonds, etc.
