We believe that the Lord blesses those who give with a cheerful heart. We also believe that giving is an important part of a Christian's life. Today, people are willing to have money transferred from their bank accounts to pay insurance premiums, utility bills, mortgages, fitness memberships, and more. The reason is convenience and the certainty that a payment won't be skipped. For the same reasons, the E-giving Giving program benefits those who want to sow money into their church faithfully and consistently.
Will it cost me anything?
No. The church will cover the small monthly service and transaction fees.
Is my information secure and private?
Yes. All industry standards apply to the security and privacy of your account information.
Will I still receive annual contribution records that include monies given through electronic giving?
Yes. Our financial administrative assistant will continue to receive your contribution information and apply it to your statements. You will continue to have the same envelope number that you have already been assigned. If you do not currently have a number assigned, you may still make a donation on the website without a number.
How often will I be able to give electronically?
The dates available for an account to be debited are the 5th and 20th of each month. If the 5th or the 20th falls on a weekend or holiday, the debit will occur on the next business day. Accounts can be debited monthly, semi-monthly, or quarterly.
Can I make changes to my e-giving?
Yes. Click on the OLD ONLINE GIVING tile to cancel or make changes to your current EFT giving.
What are the benefits?
Members, attendees, and friends, who work on weekends, go away on vacation, are out of town on Sundays, or are no longer able to attend church due to health reasons, can stay financially connected to the church. Members, attendees, and friends won't omit giving by mistake.
