Q: WHY GIVE?
A: At Calvary Chapel Concord, it is our belief that giving is a matter of the heart and that each person should give according to what they believe the LORD has purposed in their hearts.
"So let each one give as purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abount toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work." 2Corinthians 9:7-8
The work of this ministry is sustained through the prayer, volunteerism, and faithful giving of people like you. Because we do not receive financial support from any denomination or sponsoring organization, we exist because God has led people like you to support the ministry that God is doing through Calvary Chapel Concord.
Your contributions go towards covering expenses like facility rental and utilities, ministry support, outreach, missions and staffing. At Calvary Chapel Concord, we believe giving is an act of worship, and part of an obedient Christian life.
Q: HOW CAN I GIVE?
A: You can give online by using the PayPal service link directly from this website. Other methods are: to use your bank's free online bill pay service, give by cash or check in the offering basket at our Sunday & Wednesday services or mail a check to Calvary Chapel Concord, PO Box 6098, Concord, CA 94524. We encourage you to use the method that is most comfortable for you.
Q: WHO SHOULD GIVE ONLINE?
A: Online giving will benefit anyone who is looking for a simpler way to assure that their giving is consistent. This is simply an opportunity to meet the needs of those who prefer to manage their giving online versus writing a check. It may be used to give to the ministry of Calvary Chapel Concord on either a one-time or a recurring basis.
Q: IS ONLINE GIVING SAFE?
A: Security is a top priority. That's why we've taken every step possible to make sure your data is secure and always available. Our online provider, Paypal, utilizes 128-bit SSL security during the transmission of all sensitive information.

A: Yes, they will be included.
Q: HOW CAN I GET A RECEIPT OF MY ONLINE GIFT?
A: Paypal will send a receipt to the email address you provide, which is acceptable as a valid receipt for tax purposes.
Q: WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF ONLINE GIVING?
A: You can prioritize giving in your budget. Online giving may make it easier for those individuals that are familiar with online banking and bill paying to continue this mode of financial management when considering how best to donate to the church. It also offers an opportunity for you to schedule your online giving automatically and thus helps you eliminate missed tithes and gifts if you are traveling or have difficulty being consistent with your giving.
