The Bible says that Jesus—who was rich—became poor for our sake in order that we who are poor might become rich in Christ (2 Corinthians 8:9). We who were spiritually bankrupt became rich in Christ through the costly sacrifice that he provided for us. Because of this, we should consider ourselves incredibly blessed regardless of present circumstances (Romans 4:6-8). At Refuge Church, we believe in Gospel-motivated giving. If you choose to give to Refuge, please do so out of a worshipful response to what Jesus has done for you, not out of compulsion or begrudgingly (2 Corinthians 9:7). When you give like this, you are doing multiple things:
Q: Why give online?
A: When you give online, you can make giving a priority in your budget. You have the option of setting up a scheduled contribution to Refuge Church, which guards against simple forgetfulness. In 2 Corinthians 9:6-15, Paul urges to believer to give regularly, sacrificially, and cheerfully, and online giving helps to that end.
Q: Is online giving secure?
A: Security is a top priority, so we’ve partnered with a top-tier firm to make sure your financial information is kept secure. Our online provider encrypts your data with next-generation security protocols during the transmission and storage of all your financial and personal information.
Q: Can I change or cancel my online giving setup?
A: Yes. You can manage your online giving frequency and amount 24/7 by logging into your account and making the necessary changes.
Q: Do you track online giving for tax purposes?
A: Yes. All online giving to Refuge Church is tracked, and we supply giving statements upon request and during tax season.
Q: If I’m not a member of Refuge Church, can I still give?
A: Yes, you’re welcome to give to support the work of the Gospel in our body. However, if you don’t know Jesus, we don’t want your money. We want you to know Jesus.
