What is CCB?
CCB, or “Church Community Builder,” is the platform St. Stephen uses to manage members, small groups, events, and giving. If you are a guest, you can make a one-time gift without having a CCB account. If you do not have a CCB account and would like to make a recurring gift, please send us an email at info@ststephenumc.net.

Your giving form is asking for a designation. What does this mean?
If you are a guest and are making a one-time gift, we encourage you to designate your gift to the General Fund, which helps to cover the general expenses of the church. You may opt to designate your gift to the Pastor’s Relief Fund, which is used to offer financial assistance to church members and community members in need. Other designation options may vary throughout the year. If you remain unsure and do not designate your gift, it will default to the General Fund.

Gain, Save, Give:
Methodism’s founder, John Wesley, lived his financial life by three maxims: Gain all you can, save all you can, give all you can. Wesley set the same standard of living for himself and his family throughout his life, even has his income grew far beyond his once modest living. He remarked: “What should rise is not the Christian’s standard of living, but the standard of giving.”

Avoid debt:
Wesley also cautioned us to avoid debt. St. Stephen welcomes your gift, but we encourage you to avoid using credit cards or otherwise going into debt to help support the church. If you do not have the means, save your money for your family. Your presence as a brother and sister in Christ is gift enough.

Gifts come in all forms:
Your gifts to St. Stephen, the wider church, and your wider community can come in many forms. Some can give monetarily. Others may be able to serve. Whether you give of your time, talent, or treasure, please know that your contributions to the life of St. Stephen are welcomed, valued, and appreciated.
