Opportunities for charity are everywhere, and there are plenty of credible places to give. In fact, you might think RHO is just another one of them. To us, though, it’s quite different.
Our giving isn’t about charity. It’s about worship. And it’s about sacrifice.
God instructs us, through the Bible, to give regularly, generously and sacrificially out of all that He gives us—all as part of our worship of Him. What an appropriate response to who He is and all He has done…an expression of gratitude, obedience, and reverence: worship.
But, why give money to the church? Because it’s “the right thing to do”? It’s good tax write-off? God needs it? The church expects it?
To put it simply, we give as a response to the God who has given us everything. And we give because He’s asked us to.
We recognize that God doesn’t need what we have. It is us who needs to give it. What we do with what we have directs our hearts. Giving to God reminds us that He has given us everything and He can be counted on to meet every need we will ever have. Beyond that, the Church is His plan, through Jesus, to reconcile the world to Himself. To bring healing through relationships, to support one another and encourage one another. So we also give to advance the Gospel through His ministry.
How To Give To RH
If you are part of the ROCKHARBOR church family, there are four ways that you can give.
- Weekend Services: Each week, there is an opportunity, in the midst of our worship and Celebration Services, to give. You can participate in that corporate offering time, or you can place your offering in one of the offering boxes around the room.
- Online: Online giving is a great way to set up a reoccurring or one-time gift to the church. You can set up an account in just 3 simple steps! Click here to give online.
- Text: Our newest way to give is by mobile phone. Text any dollar amount to 714-880-8805 and follow the link to set up your credit or debit card to complete the transaction. Once you complete the initial set-up, your phone number will be associated with your account allowing you to give through your phone any time. Be sure to save the number in your phone to make it easy to find.
- Mail: We still do things the old fashion way if you’d like to mail a check to the church’s office at 3095 Red Hill, Costa Mesa 92626.
If you are interested in making a non-cash donation to ROCKHARBOR (i.e. stock, land, vehicle, equipment), please contact our Business Director, Bryan Wilkins.
