You can give via SMS text messaging from a cell phone. Just send a text message to “45777” (or click the Mobile Text-to-Give button above) with your gift amount followed by the keyword cedarcreek and your campus initials. For example: “50 cedarcreek pb” would give 50 dollars marked as from the Perrysburg campus.Available Campus Initials:
- PB = Perrysburg
- FN = Findlay
- ST = South Toledo
- WH = Whitehouse
- WT = West Toledo
- IC = Internet Campus
If this is the first time you are giving via this method, you’ll receive a reply with a link to set up your account. After the initial setup, future gifts are as simple as sending a text message with your gift amount and cedarcreek and your campus initials.
Gifts given by this method must be a minimum of $1 and after giving, a reply is sent to you thanking you for your gift and giving instructions on how to request a refund if an error was made.
We know not everyone prefers to carry cash or checks these days, so in addition to online giving, electronic credit/debit card donations can be given at any of our campus locations via a giving kiosk found in the lobby.
If you want to bless family and loved ones while benefiting the work of ministry, and/or if you are interested in alternative methods of donation such as giving property, stocks, or other assets, Planned Giving may be the answer. Planned Giving encapsulates creative giving strategies: estate planning, wills, real-estate, IRAs, etc… Find out more here (http://cclegacy NULL.org).

- We also know it’s not easy to participate financially at times if you don’t know where the funds are going. We offer an open-book policy with our finances. We voluntarily submit to a third-party audit yearly, have strict regulations on how funds are handled, and our financial board is comprised of local business men and women who are not compensated by the church. On top of that, our budget is voted on yearly by the members of the church! Integrity is crucial to our operations. If you have any questions, feel free to ask!
