Giving


God loves and provides for us in every way, even to the point of sending His son, Jesus. He first gave to us, and in response we choose to follow His example by being generous in serving and giving back to Him. Through our tithes and offerings to the church, we are able to tangibly show worship to our Savior and demonstrate our faith in Him and not the things of this world.


Eastview is devoted to spreading the good news of Jesus Christ to those in central Illinois and throughout the world. Through your partnership in this ministry, we are able to impact God's kingdom and accomplish incredibly more than we ever could individually.


We believe strongly that God continues to use the local church to shape eternity. As responsible stewards of His resources, Eastview is committed to operating with financial integrity so every gift we receive will have an eternal impact.

EXPANDING MINISTRY OFFERING



Last year for our Expanding Ministry Offering we gave $1,000,000 away to our Global Partners! This year, our EMO is focused on our Love McLean County vision with a Next Generation focus. If we match or exceed last year’s offerings we will be able to accomplish the following 6 projects:

  • Provide the initial 2-3 years of ministry funding for the YMCA
  • Help Launch the Chenoa Campus and reach families in and around that community
  • Partner with Encounter Ministry on the ISU campus and help double their impact in the next 5 years
  • Help launch the Preaching Institute next fall with 15 initial preaching residents
  • Provide 250 – 500 students with a full or partial scholarships to summer camp
  • Support 4-5 projects through En Lace in El Salvador as we send teams down to do community projects in cooperation with local churches

We believe God wants us to move forward on these projects by faith through our generosity!


We ask you to participate in the offering by doing the following three things:

  1. Pray over a number to give as an offering to God
  2. Sacrifice something (coffee, movies, eating out, etc.) to add to your offering
  3. Pray for a miracle. That God would provide and unexpected source of income (financial gift, a bonus, a refund, you get the idea) to add to your offering

You can give online beginning December 18 through December 31 or bring your offering clearly marked “Expanding Ministry Offering” to one of the services on December 18, 23, or 24.

GIVE DURING WEEKEND SERVICES


At each of our weekend services, there is an opportunity to give either by placing your gift in the offering boxes at the back of the worship center or by dropping your gift off at the upper or lower welcome center. Any gift of cash not identified separately in an envelope with a name and address, will be treated as anonymous. Gifts made via check do not require a separate envelope. However, please ensure that the information on your check is correct so that we can include your contribution on your annual giving statement.


GIVE BY MAIL


Gifts may also be mailed directly to the church. This option works well for using the BIllPay functionality available through your banking institution. Please be sure your check includes your full name and if possible your mailing address. Our mailing address is:

Eastview Christian Church

1500 N. Airport Road

Normal, IL 61761.


GIVE STOCKS, MUTUAL FUNDS, GRAIN


Eastview also accepts gifts of certain equity securities such as stocks and mutual funds as well as commodities like grain. Donors will receive a tax deduction for the fair market value of the security at the time of the gift and may benefit from capital gains tax savings on the difference between their cost and the fair market value. Donors who wish to make a gift of this type should notify the church of their intent and provide their broker with the included account information found on the Securities Gift Form below. Those desiring to donate grain should contact the church to discuss the best method for handling the gift.
