How to Give
We have begun the process of moving our giving platform from Churchteams to Planning Center for a more streamlined user experience. Here’s what to do next.
If you have given previously through Churchteams you can log in to Churchteams and please CANCEL your gifts, as we are hoping to stop our subscription with them as soon as February 2019. We ask that you would take a moment and move your giving to Planning Center. Do this by Clicking the “Give Online” button, which will then take you to a form that will allow you to select the designation, frequency, and amount of your giving and for your email. This will then send you a link through your email to complete your profile and add your payment method. Then you will be all set! For any questions or concerns please email [email protected].
PLEASE NOTE: You will receive 2 giving statements (one from ChurchTeams and one from Planning Center Online) for the 2018 year for your tax purposes. Both statements, when added together, will account for your total contributions.
We believe the church should lead the way in unleashing extravagant generosity to a hurting and broken world because we have an extravagantly generous God.
As a community, we take joy in the ways our faith grows and gets stronger through giving together. In answering the call to live generously, we invite God to shape us into a people who live by faith, are known by love, and strive to be a voice of hope to those around us.
Your generosity in giving to Awakening Church provides an opportunity for us to partner together in our mission to awaken this generation to new life in Christ, which includes sharing the love of God in tangible ways in our city and bringing measurable change to places in need, both locally and globally.
First Things First: What is Tithing?
The Scriptures teach us this very important principle: the first of everything belongs to God. Tithing, which means we give God the first ten percent of our income, is the primary way we acknowledge that God is first in our lives. The word “tithe” literally means “tenth” or 10%. Tithing isn’t merely giving something to God. It’s giving back what was His to begin with. All that we have, or hope to have, comes from Him. The Scriptures teach us that tithing is a reminder that God is the supplier of everything. The Bible challenges us to put God first in our lives everyday. (See Proverbs 3:9, 10; Matthew 6:33).
