Frequently Asked Questions

What are Citipoint Church's Financial Practices?

God provides for the ministry of Citipoint Church through your tithes and offerings. We honor your gifts with faithful management, ethical business practices, and full accountability so that the financial integrity of Citipoint Church remains beyond reproach. Citipoint Church holds high standards of biblical accountability, board governance, financial transparency, integrity in fund raising, and proper use of charity resources. For general questions about our financial practices, email our Office Manager, Linda Fladebo.

How do we give?

At Citipoint we have several ways that you can give to God's work through your tithes and offerings. You can give during a weekend gathering, you can mail a check to our offices, you can use our digital giving kiosk, you can give online or you can have an automatic draft. Please know that the online giving does not make a distinction regarding a debit card or a credit card. We do strongly suggest that no one use a credit card unless it is paid off every month. The Bible speaks in Proverbs 22:7 about "…the borrower [being] servant to the lender." We do not wish our congregation to go into debt by tithing on a credit card.

What if I don't have enough money to tithe?

Giving 10% of your income to your church can be a big - and often frightening - commitment! But if scripture tells us to honor Him with our first fruits and our blessings will be overflowing, we must learn to trust that He is faithful to provide. God wants us to trust Him. Seek His guidance in how much you should give, and he will honor your faithfulness and obedience.

Why do you accept credit cards?

Used within the parameters for which they were originally created, debit and credit cards can be an efficient tool for payments and purchases. Many people utilize them in place of checks or cash throughout the month, then pay off the balance in full. For these people, we offer the option of using a credit or debit card to tithe. We strongly discourage those who have ongoing credit card debt from exercising this option.

What is the deadline for annual contributions?

Cash contribution must be received or postmarked by December 31 to be included on your giving statement for that year. Online transactions must be initiated by 8pm December 31 to be included on your giving statement for that year.

I hear about Financial Peace…what is this all about?

A follower of Jesus Christ is a steward of ALL Gods resources. So many people have fallen into debt and don't manage God's resources right. Dave Ramsey says people "get in debt buying things that don't need, with money they don't have, to impress people they don't like". If you are struggling with debt or would like to develop a God-honoring spending plan, sign-up for the next Financial Peace University Group. We start new FPU every quarter and last for 9 weeks.
