Worship, Grow, Reach Out

If the eagerness is there, the gift is acceptable according to what one has - not according to what one does not have. ~ 2 Corinthians 8:12

Giving is a worshipful response to God.  All life is in response to how God has already given and moved in our lives.  Christ has freed us to truly live.  We give not because we have to, but because we get to.  This God who frees us is also the Creator and true owner of everything.  We are simply His stewards, and are called to be intentionally mindful with how we steward His resources.  We at Christ Lutheran believe there are endless ways to give and therefore bless others.  This giving includes your time, talents and treasures. We are grateful for your continued support.

Give to CLC Online Today

We are pleased that you are considering a gift to Christ Lutheran Church (CLC).  As you can tell from the other pages of this website, we have many different ministries that need your support on an ongoing basis.  Financially, like most churches we are 100% self-sustaining.  This means that we must gather enough financial resources each year to continue our local church ministries.

The Online Giving program has some new and exciting features available to Christ Lutheran Church members and friends!  You can now update your information, see your payment history, and change the amount or date that you wish to give by creating your own profile.  If you have used this program in the past, and would like to create a profile to manage your account, go to the donation page and click the “Create Profile” button.  Make sure to enter the same email address that you used to make previous contributions.  A temporary password will be sent to you.

Electronic Fund Transfer

Electronic transfer of funds is a fast, secure and convenient way to give your donations directly to Christ Lutheran Church.   With your authorization, your bank will automatically withdraw your contributions from either your checking or savings account.  Whether you wish to give automatically at regular intervals or as a one-time gift, you can decide how much and how often to give.  There are two ways to initiate electronic transfers.


To begin electronic funds transfer, you can pick up an authorization form at the church or print the Simply Giving Form below, fill it out and turn it in to the church office.
