Will and Living Trust

Interested in helping Chestnut Ridge Church continue to help people in a growing relationship with God and others for years to come?  A simple, flexible and versatile way to ensure we can change lives for years to come is a gift in your will or living trust, known as a charitable bequest.  A charitable bequest is one or two sentences in your will or living trust that leave to CRC a specific item, amount of money, a gift contingent upon a certain event, or a percentage of your estate.  In addition, giving to the church in your bequest also enables you to receive federal estate tax charitable deductions. By including a bequest to Chestnut Ridge Church in your will or living trust, you are ensuring that God’s invitation to have an eternal relationship with Him will continue to be offered in our local community and beyond.



Your Financial Gift

Your financial gift to support what God is doing at The Ridge makes ministry possible every day of the year. In this season of rapid change, our church is providing ministry in new ways each day by offering: live worship services, online prayer support, children’s ministry activities kids can do from home, and more. We are continuing to facilitate online adult, college and youth group meetings and activities, support our missionaries, and meet the needs of our church family and our community in many different ways. All of these things require financial resources.

Even though this is a season of great financial uncertainty, your gifts to support what God is doing at The Ridge are more important than ever. Thank you for being a part of ministry at The Ridge in this rapidly-changing season.

Everything is a gift from God, and giving is an opportunity to express gratitude and recognize what He has done for you. When you give, you’re simply offering Him a portion of your blessings. In the Old Testament, God instructed His people to give a tithe, or a tenth, to represent their portion of goods. Tithing provides a model for New Testament giving today. We encourage you to take the step and start giving faithfully, joyfully, and generously of your earnings while working towards the ability to tithe. The New Testament simply states for each to give according to their income. When you faithfully invest in your church, you’re not only making an impact for others, but also for yourself.

When you put God first in your finances, you’re trusting Him to take care of you, and making it possibles for The Ridge to be an inviting church that leads people into a growing relationship with God and others. God will use your financial giving to change lives in our church, community, state, and world! Your generosity makes a difference.

Without the generous donations of supporters like you none of the work being accomplished at The Ridge would be possible. For your convenience, there are multiple ways to give:
