GIVING

Financial giving at Cross Mountain Church can generally be divided into two categories: Tithes and Offerings. The Bible teaches us that we worship the Lord with our Tithe, which is ten percent of our income contributed to the church on a regular basis. When we feel called to give over and above our Tithe, we do so as an Offering.

Whether you are giving your Tithe or Offering, all giving at crossmountain.church is simple, safe and convenient.  At the same time, we do not encourage you to enter into debt in order to make your contribution to CMC. We therefore encourage everyone to use their debit card as their first option.  However, if you choose to use a credit card for your online giving, we encourage you to immediately pay off this charge to the credit card used as soon as possible.

6 Month Tithing Challenge

The word "Tithe" is derived from the Hebrew word ma'aser and it literally means a tenth. Ten percent of everything belongs to the Lord. In Malachi 3:10-11, God says, "Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse that there may be food in my house." The 'storehouse' is the Old Testament picture of the New Testament church. So as New Testament believers, we worship the Lord with the Tithe; or the ten percent.

But giving away 10% of your income can be a big - and often frightening - commitment! That's why we created the Six-Month Tithing Challenge: a money-back guarantee of sorts. Essentially, it's a contract based on the promises of God in Malachi 3:10-11. We commit to you that if you tithe for six months and God doesn't hold true to His promises of blessings, we will refund 100% of your Tithe. No questions asked.

God doesn't need our money. He owns everything. But we give first because it takes faith to give first and God wants us to trust Him. He tells us in Proverbs 3:9-10 to "honor the Lord with your wealth, with the first fruits of all your crops and then your barns will be filled with overflowing." We give first and the blessings of God follow.

Legacy Team

WHAT IS THE LEGACY TEAM?

The Legacy Team members are part of the Dream Team and serve our church with the gift of giving.

We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully. ROMANS 12:6-8

Each member prayerfully commits to give over and above their tithes to impact eternity for generations to come—to leave a legacy.

WHY DO WE NEED THE LEGACY TEAM?

The Legacy Team is an outlet for those who are called and equipped to finance the Kingdom of God and to leave a legacy. This team invests in strategic projects in our church, city, state, and nation and in opportunities all around the world.

THE LEGACY TEAM FOCUSES ON PROJECTS IN FIVE AREAS:

- Cross Mountain Church Campus

- Our Community / Local Missions efforts

- The inner-city of San Antonio

- Additional CMC Campus

- International Missions efforts

WHO CAN BE A PART OF THE LEGACY TEAM?

The Legacy Team is for anyone who feels called to give over and above their tithe. There is no specific amount because we consider any amount valuable and precious. As a church, we are not built on the gifts and talents of a few, but on the sacrifices of many.
