Every single dollar stewarded at Onward is part of the “missions budget,” strategically deployed to advance God’s mission here and around the world. We don't “pass the plate” but that’s not because there isn’t great need. In fact, we have more opportunities than resources at any given time. Rather, we believe this is the best way to facilitate joyful giving (2 Corinthians 9:7, Matthew 6:4). Let us all prayerfully consider how we might continue to invest in this mission with our hearts and God’s possessions.
How to Give
You can give online using the button below. As we launch our online giving, go here for a helpful guide of how to set up online giving. ACH (checking account) is our highly preferred method of payment because it saves us money on fees, allowing the maximum dollars possible to go directly to ministry use. To give with ACH, you will enter an account and routing number.
Note: we accept debit cards and bank transfers only (online giving page currently incorrectly lists credit card as a way to give, but that will not be an ongoing option).
During Weekend Services
Rather than pass a collection plate during weekend services, we encourage members of our body to give as the Lord leads them by placing their gifts in boxes near the entrances and exits.
Gifts can be sent by mail or dropped off at the Onward offices:
Onward Community Church, 4659 Coit Road, Frisco, TX 75035

What We Believe About Giving
"Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver."
- 2 Corinthians 9:7
We believe the giving of our firstfruits is an act of worship, a way that honors God (Proverbs 3:9) while also living mindfully that ALL we own, not just what we give is the Lord's (Psalm 24:1). God is a giver of eternal gifts (John 3:16, 1 Corinthians 2:12) and temporal (Deuteronomy 8:17-18, James 1:17) and when a follower of Christ freely and joyfully gives away their increase, whether it be money, possessions, time, or talents, they are imitating God. We are excited about your desire to give, not only because of how your gift will allow us to continue to be about our mission of being and making disciples, but also because of what your gift prayerfully communicates to the world about your heart and relationship with God (2 Corinthians 9:12-15) and how investing wisely benefits you (Acts 20:35, Luke 12:33).
