Important Notes

How to stop your giving on the OCN:

  1. Log into the OCN website, https://christchurch.onthecity.org.
  2. Click “Giving” on the left of the page and click “Donation Status” to delete any pending donations.
  3. Then you can click on “Accounts" and delete your bank account or credit card.

Please be aware that the Online Giving option for this platform will no longer work beginning September 1, 2018.

Regarding credit card charges: Each year, Christ Church pays over $9,000 in processing fees. We recognize that there are many reasons givers use their credit cards for contributions, and we are grateful for every donation. However, if it is possible for you to give by another method or select the option to absorb the fee, we would appreciate it.

Ways to Give

1) Give online to give one time, give regularly, or access your donor profile.

2) Give by mail to 2138 Cedar Street, Berkeley, CA 94709.

You can still pledge to give to our Stewardship campaign! Download your Pledge Card and mail it to our office or submit it during offering!

Why Give?

The practice of gifts or tithes goes back to principles laid out in the Torah, the first five books of our Bible. God called His people to give the first and best part of each harvest as recognition that every good gift comes from God. These gifts supported worship in God’s house and also helped redistribute means within the community, to ensure no one was in need.

Christians today set apart the first day of each week, taking a “Sabbath” to worship God and offer regular financial gifts proportionate to overall income to fund the church’s mission of building God’s kingdom. Gifts to Christ Church help us build our community, love our neighbors, and work for peace and justice within the East Bay. If you’ve never tithed before, consider making a commitment to start somewhere, whether it’s 1% or 10% of your income.

Gifts to Christ Church are also tax deductible. Christ Church is a subordinate of Evangelical Presbyterian Church which is an exempt organization as described in Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code; TAX FEIN: 27-3051735.You will receive a donation receipt in January of the new year.
