"What we do speaks so loudly

OTHERS cannot hear what we say."

Secondary Title

As a church, our vision is that, “We're for people to connect with God and to be raised to new life in Christ.”  That’s a powerful statement.  

Are we backing that up what our actions

Are we committed to the vision of a dynamic church that reaches the un-churched, de-churched, and far from God in the Grand Rapids metro? Our annual, “Louder Than Words Offering” is a special initiative where we get the opportunity to prayerfully set aside a special gift to advance the work that God is doing through New Chapel. Jesus set the vision for the local church to reach out. 

In order to do that, we have to serve, give, and treat people as God does - because people matter to God.


When we give, we’re making our actions “Louder Than Words.” That’s powerful.

Your gift marks an investment into someone’s life – whether it’s your neighbor, or someone you’ve never met: New Chapel is serious, beyond empty words, about making a difference.  You can below with our, "GIVE" tool.

FAQ's about giving toward the work God

is doing through New Chapel...

1. Where Does My Money Go?

When you give online toward this special offering, there is a designated area where you can allocate your "Louder Than Words" offering. This will go specifically toward the events and outreaches mentioned above. 

There is no large endowment, bank account, nor third party that New Chapel siphons from to operate: We're 100% supported by those who partner their finances with us to see life change through Christ.

2. Will this giving be added to my Contribution Statement?

Yes, we will mail your year-end giving statement directly to your address. 

You can also trek with your giving online on your SecureGive page.

3. What If I Need to Change Credit Card Information,

Transaction Date or the Amount of the Contribution?

You can view, edit, or delete a scheduled contribution at anytime, 

as long as you created an account on the giving page.

4. Is Online Giving Secure?

We’ve taken steps to ensure that the giving process is safe and secure from beginning to end. We take security very seriously. All information is encrypted with 256 bit SSL encryption. SSL is an acronym for “Secure Socket Layer," a security protocol that provides communications privacy over the Internet. It is the same technology used by banks and e-commerce companies, such as Amazon.com to keep your information safe and secure during transactions. We chose to partner with "SecureGive" because of their reputation for security and discretion. 

5. Can I Give Things Other than Money?

Yes. If you feel led to give beyond a cash gift, consider some of these creative giving ideas:

Stocks, Bonds, Gold/Silver, Lands, Homes, Cars, Jewelry, or Coin Collections.

6. How do I manage my online giving?

Easy! If you want to set up online giving, "automate the important," or change your giving settings, passwords, or the like: log onto newchapel.securegive.com and sign in.

7. Can this gift help satisfy "End of Year Giving?"

Yes. One significant benefit of giving to a church is that it is a tax deductible gift. As we approach the end of 2016, it is also the end of our government's fiscal year. It's important to get your 2016 giving in by December 31st, to leverage the gift as a tax deduction for your 2016 taxes. 

Prayerfully decide what God is calling you to give in our, "Louder Than Words" Offering throughout December.
