Giving to Oikos Church

Giving to Oikos Church

Stewardship begins with the understanding that everything we have is a gift from the Lord…our time, our talents, and our financial resources. Simply stated, Biblical stewardship means God's ownership and our partnership. At Oikos, we have an opportunity to proclaim the gospel by giving generously. Giving invigorates our devotion to Christ and frees us from the tyranny of consumerism. It provides an outlet for compassion and allows us to proclaim His sufficiency and provision. As people of faith, we give faithfully.  Thank you for believing in the vision and mission of Oikos.


We process online transactions via Planning Center Giving. It is safe, secure, and incredibly simple. Just click the button below to make a one-time or a regular gift. Or scroll down for instructions on how to give via text message.



Text “$ amount” to 84321 to begin. If this is your first time to use this feature, a link will be sent back to you. Follow this link to setup your secure account. Make sure you select Oikos Church. After your credit/debit card is connected and create your profile, a simple dollar amount will be all you need to enter to give.

Example: If you decide to give $100, text $100, to the number 84321. You can then save the number in your phone as “Oikos Giving” After your initial set-up, giving is made simpler than ever. Just text dollar amount from that point on.




Cash or checks can be given during our Sunday service. If you’d like to receive a tax deduction for cash gifts, the gift should be placed in an offering envelope with your name and address on it. You can find an offering envelope on the table in the center of the sanctuary. Checks can be mailed to our address below:
