Generosity Is the Gateway to Intimacy with God

Jesus said, “It is more blessed to give than to receive,” because it puts our focus on others and our dependence on God. Biblical generosity begins with tithing – giving the first 10% of our income back to God as an offering, and saying, “I recognize all I have belongs to you. I want to give you the first and the best.”

Giving Online at Venture

Online giving is a secure and convenient way to give a one-time contribution, and/or on a recurring basis. Just click “give online” button above to set up a user profile for ongoing giving, or give one-time without a user profile, to any of the listed ministry funds.

Helpful Hints

  • To change your expiration date, edit your payment information.
  • To enter a new credit card, cancel the current recurring donation (which also cancels future gifts) and enter the new card information with the new transaction.
  • Due to the fees imposed, we prefer that very large gifts be given by e-check, an option under the “Payment Information” section.

Mobile Giving

Mobile giving is a convenient way to give any amount, at anytime from anywhere, to the Church General Fund. Just text any amount to 408.916.5512 to make a one-time contribution, or text “GIVE” to schedule recurring gifts.

The first time you contribute, you’ll receive a text back with a link to set up your payment information.

In Person Giving

Bring your offering and tithes (in cash or check) to church during worship services and drop them in the offering bag as it comes around. Envelopes for cash gifts are available in the back of the worship center or by asking an usher.

We provide periodic Acknowledgements of Contributions to givers for tax and other purposes. Please provide your name and current address when you give.
