We exist to love and lead people to take next steps to find and follow Jesus.
That mission is accomplished by the generous gifts and giving by people like you. Your tithes and gifts make a REAL difference at Christ Community Church and are vital to the every-day ministry of our church. We ask that you would prayerfully consider how God is leading you to give.
Because of your generous and consistent giving we are able to do all that we do to stay on mission as a church, including:
- Building a solid Biblical foundation for our C3 Kids and C3 Student.
- Partnering with local ministries to meet real physical and spiritual needs in Bartlesville.
- Providing weekly worship services to share the hope of Christ with our city, and help you deepen your relationship with God
- Sharing Christ in our city through outreach projects and special events, and so much more.
Everything you donate is tax-deductible, and will be completely used to further what God is currently doing through our ministry locally and around the world. If you have any questions about our how we use your gifts, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Tithing & Stewardship?
The Bible teaches, “The purpose of tithing is to teach you always to put God first in your lives.” (Deuteronomy 14:23 TLB). Tithing is a reminder that God is the supplier of everything we have. It is also God’s personal invitation to an outpouring of his blessing in your life.
The baseline standard for giving in scripture is “the tithe”, which is derived from the Hebrew word "ma’aser: and it literally means “a tenth”. Ten percent of everything belongs to the Lord.
When we give the first 10% of our income to the church, we put God first in our lives. Tithing is an act of worship that expresses our gratitude, faith, and love for others.

Why give online?
There are great benefits to online giving for both you and our church. . .
Faithfully Honoring God – When you sign up to give online you are deciding in advance to faithfully give. God always blesses that kind of faith! The Bible teaches that we are to honor God with the “First Fruits” of our labor (Proverbs 3:9). By setting up a recurring contribution that is scheduled to come out of your account on the day you specify, you can ensure that your First Fruits are faithfully given back to God.
Simplicity – You won’t have to remember whether you gave this month or send in an offering by mail when you’re on a trip. Plus, you can easily track and adjust your giving at any time.
Security – We utilize an encrypted secure website for your online records. Online giving is more secure than giving with a check or cash because an electronic gift can’t be lost or stolen.
Focus – Instead of having to worry about writing a check and filling out an envelope during the service, you can be fully focused on the worship service, knowing that you have already given your offering.
Helping Christ Community Church – Online giving is more cost effective for our church to process, and it makes our record keeping much easier.
Automated Bank Debit?
Automated Bank Debit is the easiest and most effective way to automate your giving. Once it is set up, you may update or change your giving at any time by simply logging into your account. Plus, more of your gift goes to the ministries of Christ Community because the processing fees are less.

If you are have any problems or need assistance with online giving, you can contact us below.
A Note About Credit Cards
While we allow the use of credit cards for tithes and offerings, we still strongly encourage the use of electronic funds transfer rather than credit card for two primary reasons:
- Although many pay off their credit cards each month, many also do not. We do not want to encourage someone to go into debt and pay interest on gifts given to the church.
- With electronic transfer, more of your gift goes to the church. When using a credit card, as much as 3% of your gift can go to the credit card company.
