Thank you for your prayerful consideration of supporting River Rock Church through giving tithes and offerings. We are committed to being good stewards of the resources that God has graciously provided us so that we may accomplish His will.
Our church ministry is solely supported by the faithful tithes and offerings of our church people. Giving faithfully is an act of worship and an indicator of your love for God. The Bible says God loves a cheerful giver and that we should give Him back a portion of our income – like seed planted for a future crop – and He will bless our faithful generosity.
While we always enable people to give in traditional ways, in today’s digital world many people also appreciate online options which can help them be more consistent in the grace of giving. In the past cash and checks were the primary way people gave, but today many people have stopped using checks and carrying cash and instead are using debit and credit cards. Many people are paying bills, transferring funds and giving online.
You can give cash and checks on Sunday mornings or mail your offering to:
River Rock Church PO Box 184, Belle Plaine, MN 56011.
You can also setup your bank bill pay or EZ Pay service to send your offering to the same address.
Scheduled online giving makes it easy to put God first with your finances and give back to God from your “first fruits” when you are out of town some Sundays and if you no longer carry checks. Vanco Services e.giving service is the trusted source for secure online giving for thousands of churches and they are based in Minnesota.
You can use your computer or mobile device to setup weekly, monthly or yearly giving from checking, savings, debit or credit card and you can easily cancel or change the amounts without contacting anyone from our church.
There is an option to give one time, weekly or monthly. You can also setup multiple transactions like one recurring gift on the 1st and then another recurring gift on the 15th. You can also split your transactions between church giving accounts (Ministry, Missions, Building Fund, Benevolance, etc)
Immediately after submitting your giving contribution and when each auto-scheduled contribution takes place you will receive an e-mail verifying your gift.
Every Christ-follower should give back to God a portion of their income by supporting their local church. This is both an act of worship and an eternal investment into the Kingdom of God. Put God first with your finances and trust Him to provide all you need
(Test God in that! See Malachi 3:10 and Matthew 6:33).
All Christ-followers should give to their church – Scripture makes it clear that every believer in every church should give (see 1 Corinthians 16:1-2). In this same passage, the Bible tells us that we should give regularly and consistently in proportion to what we earn. We also need to keep in mind that the Lord loves a cheerful giver (see 2 Corinthians 9:7).
River Rock’s online giving is easy & secure.
Over the last few years automatically scheduled online giving has become the preferred method for many people who worship God with their finances by supporting their local church. We have a new online giving system through our ACS Realm service that allows you great flexibility to specify how and when you want to give. You can schedule contribution a certain number of times, months or for an entire year. You can setup a regular giving schedule and then easily edit or delete it. Your account numbers are masked in the system after you enter them the first time and the financial transactions are processed by Vanco Services, a nationwide industry leader in secure church online giving located up the road from us in Minnetonka, MN.
You don’t have to have a River Rock Realm account to make a one time gift. If we have your email address in our system it will recognize you when you enter your email on the our giving page.
