Give To Parkside CHristian Church

God gave first, and gave best. When we grasp that truth, we cannot help but be changed. Our outlook on life changes. Every mile we walk with Jesus, we become more cheerful and generous like Him.  This change in us leads to change in others. 


Our family, friends, neighbors, and coworkers experience God’s power and love. Orphans and widows, both here and abroad, have their physical needs met. The homeless, both here and abroad, get food and clothing. The hopeless, both here and abroad, hear the Good News of Jesus Christ. 


We make the leap of faith to tithe and trust God to provide. You can make a great difference in our community and in our world through your faithful and generous giving.

"Remember this—a farmer who plants only a few seeds will get a small crop. But the one who plants generously will get a generous crop. You must each decide in your heart how much to give. 

And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure, for God loves a cheerful giver."

2 Corinthians 9:6–7

Why give?

God is the giver of good gifts. He pours out blessings on us every day. Sure, He may not cause money to fall from the sky, but He provides the very gift of life and everything we need to live abundantly through His Son, Jesus. God gave first, and gave best.


When we grasp that truth, we cannot help but be changed. Our outlook on life changes. 

Every mile we walk with Jesus, we learn to LIVE GENEROUSLY, just like Him.


When you financially support Parkside you make an impact in our community, and in our world.

Our family, friends, neighbors, and coworkers experience God’s power and love. 

Orphans and widows, both here and abroad, have their physical needs met. 

The homeless, both here and abroad, get food and clothing. 

The hopeless, both here and abroad, hear the Good News of Jesus Christ.

PERSONAL CHECK or CASH


Many prefer writing a check or withdrawing cash at the bank, making it a physical act of worship. We make that convenient for you as well. Simply drop your gift in the “green dot” donation boxes located around the perimeter of the Worship Center. Envelopes are not needed for checks but we recommend you put cash in an envelope along with your name and address for tax deduction purposes. Checks can also be mailed to our address below (we do not recommend mailing cash). 


EARNING YOUR TRUST


Your tithes and offerings are the life blood of Parkside’s ministry. Those donations are gifts of worship back to God. That is not something to be taken lightly.


Parkside does several things to respect, honor, and safeguard those gifts of worship. First, we have a group of financial and business professionals from the congregation who serve on our Finance Team. This team monitors our financial health, steers our financial processes/policies, and manages the resources entrusted to us.


Every spring, the Finance Team coordinates with staff, ministry leaders, and the Director of Operations to develop an operating budget for the upcoming fiscal year (July 1 to June 30). This budget is reviewed and approved by the Finance Team, the Elders, and ultimately the congregation. Throughout the year the Chairman of the Finance Team and Director of Operations regularly update the Elders on how we are performing to budget, potential risks, and available resources for new ministry opportunities.


After the fiscal year is completed Parkside engages a Certified Public Accountant to produce official financial statements for the year just completed. At the end of each calendar year we also produce Annual Giving Statements for each donor and mail them out no later than January 20 of the new year so you can begin to do your taxes.


We do all this because your gifts matter to God, they matter to you, and they matter to us. Thank you for your faithful financial support of the Parkside ministry and missions.
