Online and Text Giving

Donating online to the Church of the River is a convenient way to make your regular offerings, one-time gifts, or payments without writing a check or bringing cash to the church office. Just like writing on the memo line of a check, you can indicate what the gift or payment is for. You can also set up a regular donation schedule.
