As we approach the end of 2017, please consider a year end gift to the ministry of Deer Creek Church. We believe that God is calling us to participate in the advancement of his kingdom in the following ways over the next five years:
- Adding a Saturday night service that will help us make room for more folks to worship with us at our present site by 2019
- Launching Brett and Erin Weston to plant a new church in 2019 or early 2020.
- Opening a second worship site in Sterling Ranch sometime in 2021.
- Bringing on another church planting resident for a second church plant in 2022.
- Paying off debt and finishing the upgrades in our sanctuary, lobby and upstairs bathrooms, freeing up dollars for ministry and keeping our present facility useful.
The cost for these projects will be over half a million dollars. That is money over and above our regular giving. As you think about your year-end giving, we would ask you to prayerfully consider helping us reach our community for Jesus!
Ways To Give
Simple and secure. Give a single gift, or schedule recurring giving using your checking account, debit, or credit card.
Text To Give
Text any dollar amount to 84321 to give. Follow a quick, self-guided setup process to tie your mobile phone to Deer Creek Church, your donor account, and a payment source. After that, donating is as easy as sending a text. Donate to specific funds by entering general, missions or benevolence (example, text: "$100 general" to 84321).
For some, stock donations are a great option. Donors get a full deduction for the market price on the date of donation but recognize no taxable gain even if the stock has increased in value. DCC sells the stock and uses the proceeds for the ministry designated by the donor. If you are interested, we can give you our Schwab account information and your broker can transfer securities directly to DCC’s account. We handle the rest and give you a statement for your tax return. Please contact our Executive Pastor - Tim Ringquist if you would like to purse this option.
Other Ways To Give
You can also give in person at the weekend worship gathering. If you would like to set up automatic bank pay or discuss assets you would like to give, please contact our Executive Pastor - Tim Ringquist.
Getting Started with Generosity
Working A Plan
For people who have never practiced tithing and feel that it would be too difficult to start giving 10% of their income, we suggest starting small and working your way up to it. A simple plan could look something like this:
Month 1-3: Give 1% of your income
Month 4-6: Give 3% of your income
Month 7-9: Give 5% of your income
Month 10-11: Give 7% of your income
Month 12: Give 10% of your income
Take the Three-Month Tithe Challenge
The Bible teaches us to give a portion of our first and our best back to God. This portion is 10% or a Tithe of what we earn. When we do this, God promises to bless the rest. If you're not tithing already, a great way to start is with the Three-Month Tithe Challenge. Essentially, it's embracing the promises of God in Malachi 3:10-11. If you tithe for three months and God doesn't hold true to His promises of blessings, we will refund 100% of your tithe, no questions asked.

Personal Finance Resources
The finances of Deer Creek Church are managed by the finance team under the oversight of the elders (session). The budget is created by the finance team and staff and is approved by the elders, who have been elected by the congregation, in line with the mission of our church. We use “best practices” for establishing budgets, salaries, and debt reduction.
If you have any specific questions about the management for finances at Deer Creek, please feel free to contact Tim Ringquist our Executive Pastor at email@example.com
