Following Jesus and Fearlessly Make Him Known
Ridge Point is committed to helping others Follow Jesus and Fearlessly Make Him Known. Each of us has the privilege to partner with God to reach and restore a broken world by using our gifts and resources through the local church.
For your convenience, below are additional ways to support the ministry.
Simply place cash or checks in an offering bucket during any weekend service. Offering boxes are also available in multiple locations throughout the building. Be sure to include your name and address on the check or envelope in order to receive credit for tax purposes.

Many Ridge Pointers set up Ridge Point Church in their bill payment accounts through their banking institution. This allows you to be in complete control of how often money is mailed to Ridge Point, on what day and in what amount. You can set this up online through your banking institution with the following information: Ridge Point Church Attn: Business Office, 340 104th Ave, Holland, MI 49423. You may also send regular checks to this address.
The Ministry Fund is used for operating expenses such as utilities, staff salaries, weekend worship and ministry supplies, curriculum for children and students, food, equipment, building and equipment maintenance, cleaning, etc. This is the primary funding source of the church and allows us to open our doors to be available for lost and hurting people as well as people desiring to grow in their relationship with God. Ten percent of the resources received into this fund are administered by our Partnerships Team to build and support relationships locally and globally through mission activity. The Love Fund is also funded through the Ministry Fund and allows us to provide short term assistance for families who are experiencing periods of financial hardship. Offerings received by Ridge Point will go into this fund unless designated otherwise.
The Building Fund is used for future facility expansion projects since there currently is no debt (Praise God!). When there is a pledge campaign for expansion, this is the fund from which construction, debt and related expenses are paid. Expansions are bathed in prayer and intentionality is put into how to design our campuses so that people feel welcomed, comfortable and safe while seeking God. You may contribute to this fund by writing “Building Fund” in the memo section of your check. Gifts to this fund should be over and above your regular tithes and offerings.
You can enjoy knowing you are giving faithfully without having to remember your checkbook each weekend. Ridge Point can debit your checking or savings account weekly or monthly for the amount you designate to the Ministry or Building Funds. Fill out this form and return it back to Ridge Point.
Download and fill out the Electronic Giving Enrollment form. Return it to the Finance Office at Ridge Point or drop it in an offering bucket during one of the weekend gatherings.
We offer the option of using a credit card to give as tool of convenience, not as a way to accumulate debt.
Our network of churches is committed to honoring God’s provision by exercising wise and faithful stewardship, ethical business practices and full accountability to ensure the financial integrity of each church remains above reproach. We accomplish this through a system of internal controls and an internal budgeting and reporting process overseen by a Board of Directors. In addition, a periodic audit or review is performed by an independent certified public accounting firm. A copy of the most recent audited financial statements may be requested by mailing email@example.com or calling 616.395.4126 x 455.
