GIVING

Generosity in Action

At TCC, we believe in giving generously because we serve a generous God! He has generously given us abundant spiritual and material gifts and blessings. As we follow our generous God and grow into spiritual maturity, generous giving is a natural outcropping of that process.

Why do we give?

Because Giving Honors God

When you give to God, you honor His place in your life as the giver of all good things. God is worthy of honor, and your generosity honors Him! (Proverbs 3:9)

Because Giving Blesses Others

When you give, you participate in God’s plan for funding both local and global ministry efforts. Giving generously allows TCC to minister to those who are part of the church, part of the community, and beyond! (2 Corinthians 9:12)

Because Giving Is Rewarded

God generously rewards your generosity! God’s Word is very clear that He gives blessings in this life and eternal rewards to those who give generously of what they have. While those blessings may not necessarily be monetary in nature, they are something you don’t want to miss receiving! (Malachi 3:10)

Common Questions

How does giving work in worship services?

As part of each of our Sunday morning worship gatherings (8:00, 9:25, 10:45), we actively participate in worship through giving of our tithes and offerings. At a designated point in the gathering, our ushers will come forward and pass the offering trays down each row. Feel free to place cash or checks in the plate as it passes by, and pass it to the person next to you until it reaches the end of the row.

To whom do I make out my check?

Please make checks payable to Tonganoxie Christian Church or TCC. Unless otherwise designated in the memo line of the check, all funds will go to the General Fund for normal church operations and ministry efforts.

Can I give using a card?

TCC can accept payments with your debit or credit card via our online giving system.  However, TCC does NOT encourage the use of credit cards for giving purposes. If you choose to do so, please understand how this impacts your monthly indebtedness to your lender. (Proverbs 22:7)

You can give a one time gift, or you can set up a recurring payment from your checking account, debit card, or credit card.

Is my giving tax deductible?

Your gifts are tax deductible since TCC is an approved non-profit religious 501(c)3 organization.

Gifts that can be associated with an individual will be tracked by our church treasurer for tax deduction purposes.  An end-of-year statement will be given that documents your tracked gifts.

Loose cash cannot be tracked for tax deduction purposes, so if you plan on giving cash and want it documented, please place it in an envelope with your contact information written on it, or request giving envelopes from the church office.
