We believe that God is the giver of all things and that all that we have ultimately belongs to him. At Christ Community, we embrace the biblical view of tithing which encourages us to give back to God the first fruits of our gifts and talents. We invite you to learn more about monetary and physical gifts below.
ONLINE GIVING: We offer online giving through REALM, our new church management platform. Through this private, secure network, you can use your credit/debit card or an automated transfer of funds from your checking or savings account. Simply click on the link above to go to our secure online giving form, select the General Fund or a specific fund or ministry area to which you wish to contribute, and enter the amount that you wish to contribute. Complete the fields on the form to process your gift.
TEXT GIVING: Text giving is available as well. Simply text c3franklintn to 73256 to set up this option.
CASH GIFTS: You can give cash during any Sunday morning worship service or drop it off at the Christ Community business office during normal business hours (Monday through Friday, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm). If you wish to receive credit for tax purposes, please be sure to use an envelope with your name and address on it.
CHECKS and MONEY ORDERS: Checks and money orders can be given during any Sunday morning worship service, dropped off at the Christ Community business office during normal business hours, or mailed to Christ Community Church: 1215 Hillsboro Road, Franklin, TN 37069, Attn: Business Office.
RECURRING GIFTS: Users of REALM at Christ Community may give online or set up recurring gifts through their REALM accounts, using the online giving link above. If you are not a REALM user, you may still use the online giving option above for individual gifts or use automated transfer of funds for your regular, tax-deductible giving to Christ Community. You may choose monthly or twice-monthly transfers from your bank account directly to the church account. Simply fill out the “Debit Authorization Form” available in the church office or click here to download, print, and complete the form. Please submit the form to the attention of the Business Administrator by dropping it off during normal business hours or mailing the form to Christ Community Church: 1215 Hillsboro Road, Franklin, TN 37069, Attn: Business Office. Once we receive your form, we will contact you to confirm the information. You may discontinue the debits at any time.
DONOR ADVISED FUNDS: Donor Advised Funds are a particularly tax friendly means of directing your giving. Please use this link to visit the website of the Presbyterian Church of America Foundation (PCAF) to learn more and explore this option.
GIFTS OF STOCK and GIFTS IN-KIND: For gifts of stock or gifts in kind, please contact Don Davis in the business office (by phone at 615-468-2226 or by e-mail) for details on these options.
**For online and text giving options, the church encourages the use of checking accounts versus credit cards or electronic transfers for the purpose of fee avoidance. However, both options remain available to you.
TAX DEDUCTIBLE GIVING
You may make your gifts in a variety of forms and will receive a receipt of your tax-deductible gifts in accordance with IRS requirements. For gifts made online or by text using credit/debit card or electronic bank transfer, you will receive an e-mail receipt of each individual gift. Each year in January, you will be mailed a hard copy statement of ALL giving for tax purposes.
