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.
Ways to Give
If you like the ease and convenience of online shopping, you’ll love Parkside’s secure online giving. It’s flexible! You can set up recurring donations based on your tithing schedule or make a one-time gift. Plus, you have the flexibility to pay by credit, debit, or e-check (ACH) withdrawal. Simply click on the link below to get started:
You can also give on your smart phone by using Give-by-Text. Like online giving, you can set up recurring donations or give a one-time gift. Simply text your desired dollar amount to 513-285-6583 and follow the instructions. Done!
You can also use the QR Reader on your smart phone to go directly to the Parkside Secure Giving mobile site. With just a few clicks you’ll have your donation completed. Like Online and Text giving, you can use the QR function to make recurring or one-time donations.
Online banking is a great way to set up scheduled giving. Many people use this method to pay bills on time. It’s also an easy way to schedule giving our “first fruits” back to God. When using online banking be sure to note any designations in the memo section and mail to:
Parkside Christian Church
6986 Salem Road
Cincinnati, OH 45230
For many, taking the time to personally write a check to Parkside is a powerful worship moment. We sincerely appreciate your faithfulness. For those who prefer this method, simply drop your check in the offering plate or mail it to the address above. Note any designations in the memo section of the check. An offering envelope is not necessary—for added privacy simply fold it in half.
If writing a personal check is an act of worship, then taking the time to draw cash from the bank takes it up another level. Again, we are grateful for your donation and your faithfulness. Please be sure to seal your cash donation in an offering envelope and note your contact information so we can credit the donation to your Giving Statement. Drop your envelope in the offering plate, never send by mail.
How can I know my money is being used properly?
Great question. There’s a “churchy” word out there you may hear occasionally: “stewardship”. It basically means having financial integrity. Here at Parkside we take stewardship very seriously. We truly believe God owns everything and blesses His children with good gifts (like money!). We respect the fact that you work hard to earn every penny and put your trust in us to spend it wisely.
So we appoint a group of godly, responsible, Parkside Partners to serve on our Finance Team, managing our resources to squeeze out every bit of value we can for God’s Kingdom. The Finance Team and staff are accountable to the Elders. At the end of every quarter we publish our financial results to the congregation. Every spring the staff and ministry leaders develop a budget for the upcoming fiscal year (July to June), then we take it before the congregation for approval. Last, we have a CPA review our financials for the prior fiscal year to ensure accuracy and integrity.
We do all this to make sure your tithes and offerings are given the honor and respect God desires.
