Why We Give

Jesus has given us so much, so we want to give back out of gratitude and to help transform our community and world! Each of us has diverse gifts that are needed to help the church be the church. Together when we serve with the gifts God has given us, we make our faith community more vibrant by doing God’s work with our hands.

Ways to Give

  • Serving: There are many volunteer opportunities at Cross of Peace. Sunday School teachers, worship volunteers, church council, serving on a task force, and more!

  • Giving: Faithful generosity through offering is what helps us do what we do – proclaim the love of Jesus for ALL! Our offerings help us pay our staff, fund our programs and ministries, provide upkeep to our building, but most importantly, make a difference in the lives of others!

  • You can quickly and easily give with no fees on Venmo to @COPShakopee

  • Give securely and electronically using our new PayPal option! Submit an offering using your own PayPal account or your debit or credit card – Offerings can be one-time or set up as a monthly donation. Quick, easy and appreciated!

  • Simply Giving: An option where you can automatically give electronically, so you don’t have to write a check or remember your offering envelope. This also helps the church have sustainable giving, even when you are not able to attend worship.
