At Ross Road we believe that giving (or tithing) is something God has asked His people to do (1 Cor 16:2). By giving we're supporting His work, and our response is an act of worship for His generosity and all that He has given to us.
During each in-person service, we pass an offering bag around the pews. While we do rely on the support of those who call Ross Road home, if you're visiting with us, please do not feel obligated to give. For those of you who do call Ross Road home, or for those who may just want to make a one-time donation toward the work going on here, there are several ways you can financially support RRCC:
