Whether you give online, by texting, or in person during worship, your gift changes lives all while allowing you to express your heart of generosity. So thank you for giving and making a difference!
A brand new congregation like River Of Hope needs more than just resources; it invites the hearts of people who are passionate about their relationship with God, others, and the world. Through the ways we give, we become partners with God in the work God intends to do in us and through us. There’s an interesting phenomenon that happens in giving — hearts that are generous give, and when we give, our hearts become more generous.
While you can always give during our worship services, there are other easy and convenient ways to give, anytime or anywhere.
The old-fashioned, but tride-and-true way to give, in-person, during one of our services. Sometimes keeping it traditional is the best way to go!

Once you have created an account, you’ll be able to give in the future by just texting an amount as noted above as all of your information is saved through your phone number- it’s really that simple! Lots of people like this option because they can do it during worship when the offering plate is being passed.
