Giving

God provides for Highland Park Christian Church (HP) through your offerings. We honor these gifts with prayerful stewardship, ethical business practices, and accountability. We offer several ways to give:

  • Mailing, bringing a check or money order, or placing gift in trays on Sunday
  • Electronic bill pay through your bank (most banks offer this at no cost to HP)  
  • Giving online - You can make an easy one-time gift, or you can create an account to manage future donations and track your own giving. Click here to give online.
  • Text an amount (such as $50) to 918-992-4040. It will walk you through simple instructions. Once you've set it up, you can simply text an amount. For a list of text shortcuts, including refunds for text errors or recurring gifts, go to Donating_By_Text.pdf.

Gifts Remembered - Food Pantry

The 2:20 Food Pantry serves a vital role in our church and community. The ministry meets a growing list of physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. They had to reinvent their methods due to Covid, and they've done so with creativity and compassion. The Food Pantry and Home Improvement Ministries (HIM provides Christ-centered counseling) are both based in the 2:20 Center. Sadly, the 2:20 Center experienced a break-in last month. Nobody was injured, but items were stolen and damaged.

Each year, Highland Park encourages people to participate in Gifts Remembered - an above-and-beyond gift to a specific cause. The 2:20 Food Pantry is this year’s recipients. Your gifts will:


1. Supply food and equipment needs.

Allow the team to replenish what was lost and prepare for future needs.


2. Secure the 2:20 Center.

Cover the cost of expenses related to the break-in, and pay for additional lighting, better doors, and other security-related improvements. These improvements will be a blessing to our volunteers, HIM, Learning School, and the neighborhood friends whom we serve.


3. Spur them on in love and good deeds (Hebrews 10:24).

Our volunteers have been asked to dream about how extra funds could be used to further their ministry. They are considering some facility modifications that would provide cover from the elements while unloading truckloads of food, an outdoor area to meet with clients, and other ways to improve their effectiveness. These options will be considered as our time of giving ends.


We’ll collect a special offering on Sunday, December 20th (make checks to “Highland Park Christian Church” and write “Gifts Remembered” in the memo line). You can also give online (select the "Gifts Remembered" option) or by mail (5708 E 31st St, Tulsa, OK 74135). 


Giving is tax deductible. Monies collected above what is needed for the above projects will go in the HP General Fund, which funds the regular expenses for the Food Pantry. Please make gifts (postmarked or made online) by December 31st.

Frequently asked questions

What are the advantages of online giving? 

It's secure, easy and can be done from wherever you can be online. It's easy to set-up recurring donations, or you can make a one-time payment (like on a day you are out of town). Online giving may also help you establish more disciplined giving patterns. 


Are there disadvantages? 

HP incurs about a 3% transaction fee for online donations. So if you give $100, HP receives $97. We encourage people considering a special, large gift to consider another giving option, but we are thankful for any gift. 


Why do you accept credit cards? 

Used within wise parameters, credit cards can be an efficient tool for some. However, we strongly discourage those with ongoing credit card debt from utilizing this option. 


Can I designate my gift?

Every dollar given to HP is used to support the whole vision of HP, both locally and globally. Therefore, gifts cannot be restricted unless we are raising money for a specific cause. We believe that this practice best honors the teachings of the Bible. 


How do I document my contribution? 

HP mails semi-annual and year-end contribution statements. You can also review your online giving from your Online Giving Page.


When will my donation be drawn or charged?

Online Giving will process your transactions on a daily basis and submit them for processing within 24 hours. Your transaction will be immediately registered in the Online Giving system. 


What is the deadline for annual contributions? 

Cash contributions must be received or postmarked by December 31 to be included on your giving statement for that year. Online transactions must be initiated by December 31.
