“Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” 2 Corinthians 9:6-7

DIFFERENT GIVING FUNDS
As you give to God’s work at Black Rock Church, you are able to give to different funds. If you don’t select a fund, it will automatically be put to the General Fund. As you give online and in service through our giving envelopes, you can designate your tithes and offerings to these different funds.
Here is an explanation of each fund:
- GENERAL FUND: Supports all of our ministries from kids and students, to young adults and adults. This fund also supports church services, operations, and staffing.
- MISSIONS FUND: Supports our Global Partners throughout the world and locally as we share the Good News of Jesus through our Missions Commitment pledge each year.
- DEACONS FUND: Supports those in need within our church and community.
- BUILDING FUND: Supports our previous building projects and our goal of being debt-free in the next year.
help save the church money
Here are two ways to save the church money in processing fees:
1. In Realm, you can cover the processing fee each time you give. Just click that option in your giving through Realm and that will save the church some money.
2. If you can’t cover the processing fee, then can you consider using ACH (your bank account number) instead of a credit card. You will save the church 2% of your giving by not using a credit card as your payment option.
