Giving to Our Mission in Several Ways

Please look below and see what fits you best.

Our goal is to make your giving to mission through Cross of Hope easy to do!


Your financial support is also essential.  In order that we can develop a generous yet realistic budget we ask each member to complete a Commitment Pledge Card  and a Spiritual Gifts 2017 form (one per adult). Online and printable forms are available on the Forms menu.




Have you tried - ?



        Direct deposit program for your offering?

Cross of Hope participates in the Simple Giving direct debit program through Vanco Services.  Using Simple Giving makes it easy for you and for Cross of Hope.  It is our preferred method of pledged giving.  Instructions and the application Simply Giving form.



       Electronic Bill-Pay for your offering?

You can do the same thing with your contributions to Cross of Hope. Just set Cross of Hope up like any other business account you would pay through your bank’s electronic bill-pay system.  This auto-draft is then drawn from your account and comes right to Cross of Hope’s account quickly and easily.



         Do you prefer “Giving Envelopes?”

They are available in a box. Please be sure to let us know you want a box of envelopes.



      Do you participate in United Way?

If your employer participates with United Way, you can use your employer’s payroll deduction to United Way and designate Cross of Hope as your option for giving. The the draft from your account comes directly to Cross of Hope just like it does from Simple Giving.



           Would you like to use a Text to Give App?

@pay is a "text to pay" application that allows secure, convenient giving to Cross of Hope through your smart phone.  Text your dollar amount and description to: 505-629-4012.  Instructions can be found at the Connection Center or the Usher Station.
