THE CHALLENGE


Establish the habit of consistent giving!

Give the first 10% of your income for 90 Days to this church-wide initiative will go from October 25 - January 24.

Think of the impact we can make as a church when we all give!

LET'S TALK NUMBERS


  • Last year's total giving was roughly $3 million.
  • We estimated that there are 1300 families attending Parkview.
  • 25% of those families are giving 96% of total contributions.
  • If the other 75% gave $100 a year that would be an additional $97,200.

Where does the money go when I give to Parkview?

16% - Ministry

BIBLICAL TRUTH


The Bible teaches us a baseline standard for giving: the tithe. When we give the first 10% of our income to the church, we demonstrate our commitment to put God first in our lives.

Tithing is an act of worship that expresses our gratitude, faith, & love for others. The Bible says we can trust the promises of God. When we give our first and best back to God, He promises to bless the rest.

You can never outgive God. We believe that God has great things in store for you as you trust Him with what He’s entrusted to you!

GETTING STARTED


For many, the idea of bringing the first 10% of our income to the Church seems overwhelming. The thing is, it doesn’t matter how much or how little we make, God promises to pour out blessings on us when we give. Giving is about training our heart to trust God at His Word.

At Parkview we consider the tithe to be a starting point for some and a goal to be reached for others. What matters most is not the amount, but the sacrifice it represents. Tithing is a biblical principle that invites God’s blessing on our lives and families as we put Him first in our finances. The 90-Day Giving Challenge can help you get started!

DECEMBER GIVING


This year's December Giving at Parkview Community Church, we want to assist these three organizations that are directly impacting their communities through the practice of Christian Community Development.

1. The Parkview Collective

The Parkview Collective works with schools and churches in the area to provide after-school care and community assistance to children and families in the local community. Learn More

2. River City Community Development Center

River City Community Development Center is a ministry that formed out of River City Community Church. The Community Development Center serves the community with a commitment to walk children from students all the way to a career while surrounding them with a web of support and resources from the R City Team. We are connected to this organization through Daniel Hill, who works directly with River City, and has been a guest speaker at Parkview many times. Learn More

3. New Community Outreach

New Community Outreach supports youth and families in Chicago’s Bronzeville community by providing weekly classroom assistance for students, leading restorative justice programs, maintaining a community garden, and organizing a community-wide back-to-school fair. New Community Covenant Church and former Parkview staff member, David Swanson, connect us to this organization. Learn More

GIVING FAQ

Q: What is the preferred method of giving?
A: We prefer you use our online or text-to-give platform. It's easy for you and is an efficient use of Parkview's resources.

Q: Who should give online?
A: Anyone who is looking for a simpler way to give to the ministry of Parkview. You can give as a one-time gift or set up a recurring gift.

Q: Is giving online safe?
A: Yes, it is! Pushpay is Level 1 PCI DSS compliant, which also happens to be the same certification your bank has. This means Pushpay is considered significantly more secure than many current payment methods, including actually having a credit card physically present.

Q: Would you prefer I use a credit card or ACH?
A: We prefer you give from your bank account (ACH) rather than using a credit card. If you choose to give with a credit card, please keep in mind that roughly 3% of your gift will go to the credit card company for processing fees. With ACH transfers from your bank, Parkview receives 100% of your gift.

Q: When are gifts processed?
A: You are able to choose the date your gifts are to be processed when you set up your gift online.

Q: How can I get a receipt for my gift?
A: You can access your giving statement online anytime by logging into your InFellowship account. You can see giving statements that include any online or in-person giving associated with you.

Q: Will my online gifts be included on my contribution statement?
A: Yes, they will be included in your year-end giving statement.

Q: Can I view my giving history online?
A: You may view your giving history online three business days after you have established your new account in our system. Going forward, you will be able to view your giving history at any time.

Q: What if I am not a Parkview member, but want to make a donation? Can I still get a contribution statement for tax purposes? A: Giving online provides a contribution statement to all who give regardless of membership status, assuming we have your correct contact information.

Q: What if I want to cancel or change my online giving?
A: You may cancel or make changes to contributions before processing is complete. Once your contribution has processed, you cannot make any changes to it through your online giving account.
