Why use an app? I prefer to give on Sundays via check/cash. Is that still okay?
Yes, you can always give on Sundays via check or cash during the giving portion of our service.

How does RLC handle money?
We believe that everything we do carries significance, so the money given to forward the mission is important. Our finances (including our yearly budget, salaries and expenses) are managed by our Business Board. Comprised of elders, business people and accountants from various places within our community, our board handles all of our finances with wisdom, integrity and care. We use the Handbook for Church & Clergy Salaries as a guide for our salaries for our Pastors. Our budgets and major decisions are finalized by the Business Board before being approved by our elders.
Why is giving so important?
At RLC, we're all about living generously, because Jesus did. We're also about being good stewards over what God has given us. We believe that giving and tithing is a way to worship God, who has provided us with everything that we have. Our giving is simply a response to the goodness of God!
