Giving Options

The most common way to give, is to put bring your tithe or offering to Sunday worship and put this in the collection plate in the back of the sanctuary. If you are unable to come on Sunday, there are three other ways you can do this: Send a check to the church, text-to-give, or give on-line. Here are the instructions for how each of these work: 

1. Send a check to the church.  

  • Please send your tithe or offering to our P.O. Box mailing address (not physical address):


New Life Church
P.O. Box 1448
Spring, TX 77383-1448


2. Text to Give.  

  • Save your church's giving number to your contacts - 646-832-4848.


  • Text the amount you'd like to give, e.g. "25", to your giving number.

  • Click on the link you receive, input your church's Quickcode, which is "nlcrc, "and fill out and submit the setup form (make sure to login if you already have an account).

  • The next time you text an amount to the giving number, the gift will be processed immediately.

3. Give Online.  


  • Click on the green "Give Online" button. On-line giving is processed through a ministry called Faithstreet.


  • Enter the amount you plan to give.


  • Select frequency (one time vs. reoccurring gift).


  • Select the fund you want this to go to. If you want this to go to New Life's tithes and offerings, simply do nothing. The default fund is the General Fund, which is New Life's tithes and offerings. If you would like your gift to go towards another fund (e.g. Benevolence, Building, NLCCS, a Church Plant, etc.) then select that fund. 


  • Select the option to pay transaction fee or not. If you select YES, you will be charged a small fee on top of your gift but 100% of your gift will then go to the church. If you select NO, the fee will be deducted from the gift.


  • Create an account. 


  • Enter credit card or bank info where the funds will come from.


  • NOTE: There is an app called "Faithstreet" that will allow you to give from your phone. Go to Google Play or Apple store and download the app. When it asks for church and city, enter: "New Life Christian Reformed Church Spring TX"


  • Follow the same steps as listed above and give from your phone.

Biblical Stewardship


God gives us talents to use for His glory. He has also given us time and treasures, and we are called to steward all of these things. Money is one topic people aren’t too eager to hear about in church. After all, people wonder, isn’t the church just after my money? But did you know that Jesus talked about money more than he did about prayer and faith? There are about five hundred verses that talk about prayer, five hundred verses that talk about faith, and over two thousand verses that talk about our material possessions. If it was important to Jesus, we think it is important to us as well!


The Bible says that everything in this world belongs to God and that He entrusts us to steward His resources wisely (Psalm 24:1-2; Matthew 25:14-30). Jesus warned us, ”For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:21). God also expects us to use our treasures:​


  • to care for our needs and the needs of our family (1 Tim. 5:8)​


  • to help the poor (Prov. 11:24-25; Is. 58:9-11; Eph. 4:28)​


  • to support His Church and kingdom (Matt. 6:33)

Paul said that when we give, we should not give out of guilt or obligation, but out of gratitude. “Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver” (2 Corinthians 9:7). The Old Testament pattern of the tithe (giving one tenth of one’s income) was the norm in Scripture. We don’t read about this in the New Testament, but that is because the early believers gave generously and sacrificially, well beyond the tithe!


In light of these truths, we offer ourselves joyfully to do God’s work with loving obedience. Using our gifts, stewarding our resources, and making the most of every opportunity, we strive to do good, build up the church, and extend God’s kingdom.


In the spirit of transparency and accountability, the congregation votes each year to approve the proposed budgets of our church and school. Summary financial reports are received each month at our council meeting. If you would like a detailed financial report, please contact the church office. If you want to find out more about what the church’s teaching is about stewardship, please contact Pastor Andy (
