Generosity changes lives.
Giving is an expression of our gratitude, faith and love for God and others. It all begins with our tithe, the first tenth of our income, to the church.
At Crossroads, we don't pass an offering plate during services. We believe giving is a very personal decision which flows out of a desire to give back to God and to be obedient and we don't believe it's necessary to pressure anyone by the passing of a the plate. Instead, throughout the building, there are offering boxes placed by the entrances and in the worship center on Sunday or during the week. Giving online is always available and a great convenient option.

Please contact your bank’s customer service department to set-up online bill pay.
