Why We Give
God is generous and so he calls us to be as well. What we do with what God has given us shows the world where our hearts are and helps proclaim the gospel. We want to glorify God with every area of our lives, and that includes what we do with our finances.
Ways to Give
We provide several avenues to help you partner with us as we build a church you can bring your friends to.
It is true that we don't pass an offering plate during our Sunday service, but that doesn't mean you can't give in person. Throughout the Branches building you will find large "Redboxes" where you can drop off your donations. You can even drop a check in the mail. Just send it to:
PO Box 676
Scappoose, OR 97056
Want to make giving and generosity a habit? Now you can with recurring donations. Utilizing the Branches mobile app or the form on this page, you can set up a wide variety of repeating payment options. Whether it's once a month, once a week, or somewhere in between, we have an option that fits your budgeting schedule.
Pretty self-explanatory, right? Well, whether you give regularly, are just visiting, or this is your first time ever giving to a church, we want you to know that we really appreciate your donation. We believe that generosity doesn't only affect those around you, but actually affects you as well. If you would like to make a single transaction, simply select "One-Time" in the online form or in the Branches app.
Branches is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and all donations are tax-deductible
