Thank you for your interest in supporting the ministries of West Ridge.  We philosophically believe that giving in the Bible is not budget driven, it’s spiritually driven.  It is. through a desire to grow and give generously because you have been so blessed that you can only say thank you to God for his grace, forgiveness and blessings.  Because of your financial support it enables us to meet spiritual and physical needs in our community.

For your convenience we provide several different ways to give below:

We now have the option to text to give.  Text “Give” to 847-488-1761 and follow the prompts. You will have the option to give once or reoccurring to our General Fund, Nicas Angels or for Outreach.

Online giving allows for a specific dollar amount to be given using an ACH or bank draft. When you choose this method to give, your gift is safely and electronically transferred on a date you select, from your checking/savings account to West Ridge’s checking account. Neither party incurs a transaction fee.

You may also give with a debit card or a credit card. Your gift will appear on your monthly statement in the same way other transactions do. West Ridge will incur a percentage transaction fee for gifts made via credit or debit cards. When giving online, you have the option to setup up a one-time donation or an automatic recurring gift. If you are ready to set up online giving, click give now, and follow the simple instructions on the next page.

Many banks offer their customers the ability to have checks automatically drafted by their bank and mailed to the recipient (such as the church) on a recurring basis. Please contact your personal bank if you wish to pursue this option.

Mail your donation to West Ridge Community Church, P.O. Box 6259, Elgin, IL 60121-6259. Please use the memo line to let us know that your check is intended for the offering. Please do not send cash through the mail.


All contributions made to West Ridge are held in the strictest confidence. For online giving we use third-party vendors who are PCI compliant. This is a worldwide information security standard, assessed annually, signifying that increased security measures such as secured servers and encrypted data are in use in order to protect your personal information.
