“For I can testify that they gave not only what they could afford, but far more. And they did it of their own free will.” (2 Corinthians 8:3, NLT)
How to give?
Step 1- PRAY
Don’t rush. Take time to pray through what God would have you do. Remember, we are asking for equal sacrifice, not equal gifts. You may want to call a “family conference” and involve your kids in praying for God’s wisdom regarding your financial gifts.
Step 2- DECIDE
Remember, you are praying over two financial commitments: A one-time cash offering given on or before November 11th, and a three year pledge.
Step 3- GIVE
Your gifts MUST be designated to the “Build the DREAM Fund.” There are several ways to turn in your BTD offering:
CASH: Place your cash in an envelope with your name and designate it as “DREAM Vision Fund.”
CHECK: Your check must designate “BTD Fund” in the memo field. Do NOT combine with your tithe check.
CHURCH APP: You can give through the Oak Ridge App on your smart phone using Pushpay. Select the Giving Type: ‘Build the DREAM.’
WEB: Be sure you select “Build the DREAM.”
TEXT: Text the code “ORBCBTD” to 77977 and you will be prompted to click on the link to Pushpay. Click the link and then select your gift amount.
BILL PAY: Use your bank’s online service. Make sure the payment is marked “BTD.”
Step 4- PLEDGE
In addition to a one-time cash gift, our church family turned in a 3-year pledge. You can turn in your pledge to Build the DREAM by filling out the form below (just click on the image to access the form):
