God calls us to give voluntarily, cheerfully and sacrificially (Acts 2:44-47; Acts 4:32-35; 2 Cor. 8:1-5,7; 9:2,6-7,12-14; Prov. 3:9-10; 1 Tim. 6:17-19), which is the right response to a God who has been gracious to us.

If you would like to set up an automatic draft from your bank’s checking account, just complete the Direct Payment Authorization form and return it with a voided check to Danielle Gibson, Director of Accounting, to either the church mailing address or by dropping it in a Give box at weekend services. Then sit back as your requested offering of any amount is deducted automatically from your checking or savings account each month! This is the preferred method to automate recurring gifts, since there are no fees charged to either you or the church for this service.
Frequently Asked Questions
What are the different funds I can give to?
The general fund supports our day to day ministry needs – everything from our Sundays to midweek gatherings for high school students. This is the primary fund we ask folks to give toward, as we draw all our ministry and operational expenses from it. In addition, this fund supports all of our missions work – both local and international – as well as benevolence. 10% of every dollar in the general fund goes toward missions, and an additional 1% goes toward benevolence needs to support our neighbors as we seek to provide hope and encouragement during challenging circumstances and seasons.
Sometimes we or people we know go through challenging circumstances that benefit from outside financial support. While the benevolence fund is primarily supported through general giving, folks who want to give specifically to support this fund may also do so. We use these dollars to provide hope and encouragement to folks in our community when they fall on difficult times.
Whatever It Takes Fund
This special fund is temporary. We are blessed to be part of a growing church dedicated to seeing every community have a healthy, thriving Christian community. Whatever It Takes allowed for our Hope City Campus to remodel their new facility to better serve their congregation and local community.
How do I set up bi-monthly scheduled giving?
In order to set up bi-monthly giving you will have to set up two separate monthly giving schedules with different dates. For example if you give on the 5th and 15th of every month, you would set up one monthly transaction for the 5th and another monthly transaction for the 15th.
Will I still be able to view my past giving history?
Yes! When you create a login on the Rock you can view all of your year-to-date giving.
How do I edit new transactions on the Rock?
When you login to the giving portal you can edit and create your scheduled giving on the Manage Giving Profiles tab.
How do I give to accounts other than the General Fund?
On the top of the giving page in Rock there is a link to give to accounts other than the General Fund.
Who should I contact if I have issues with the Rock giving portal or my login?
Please call the church at 503-646-2151. We would be more than happy to help!

Beaverton Christian Church is happy to provide our congregation with a path to sound biblical stewardship through their estate plans. To do this, we’ve partnered with Financial Planning Ministry, an organization with over 25 years of experience! Our partnership allows these services to be offered at no cost to you!
A Living Trust can keep your estate from going through the high costs and delays of probate, and unlike a will that becomes public after your passing, a Living Trust offers total confidentiality and complete control over your assets.
How does a living trust work?
Upon your passing, whomever you named at the time you established your Trust would immediately take control over your assets and distribute them according to your directions. There are no required waiting periods. You can name a legal “Guardian” in your Trust to care for your minor children at the time of your passing. You can also name a “Conservator” for yourself, should you at any time become disabled.
Assets are easily placed in the Trust by changing the title on your stocks, real estate, bank accounts, etc. The property will now be titled in the name of your Living Trust, with yourself named as the Trustee. It is still your property and you may continue to enjoy it or sell it as you choose, as you are the owner of your assets, and Trustee of your Living Trust. And, a Revocable Living Trust may be revoked or amended by you at any time in your lifetime.
At Beaverton Christian Church, we believe that we are called to steward the resources God has entrusted to us. This means using our bodies, time, talents, possessions, and finances in a way that demonstrates our lives belong to him (Romans 12:1-2; Galatians 5:22-26; Ephesians 5:15-17). We get to do this! This is an opportunity for us to build God’s family, placing Him first in everything we do (Exodus 20:3).
Because we believe strongly in the vision God has given us, our community commits to giving financially on a regular basis. This isn’t a mindless obligation, however, it’s a cheerful and exciting act that supports the ministry of our church! We choose to sacrifice a portion of our income because we believe it’s the right response to a God who has been so gracious to us (Acts 2:44-47; Acts 4:32-35; 2 Cor. 8:1-5,7; 9:2,6-7,12-14; Prov. 3:9-10; 1 Tim. 6:17-19).
