Four Ways to Give

Lobby Box.jpg

Offering Boxes in Lobby

We have two offering boxes in our lobby outside the worship center. You can place cash or a check into an envelope and place your offering in the box.

Log into your bank's online bill pay and set up a one-time or recurring payment to be mailed to the church address:

Mail A Check

If you have paper checks available at home and don't want to deal with online payments or use the offering boxes in the lobby, simply mail a check to our church address:

Give Online

For a small fee, you can give online using our church's secure giving site. For more detailed instructions of how to best give online, please scroll to read the important info below.

The Best Way to Give ONLINE

Setting up an Electronic Bank Transfer is the most effective way to maximize your online giving. As you will see below, an Electronic Bank Transfer is the most economical method to process gifts and maximize the reach of your gift. Additionally, Tithe.ly gives you the option of covering the processing fees, which allows us to utilize even more of your online gift. Please contact us if you have any questions.

As you can imagine, these fees add up when multiplied by greater amounts and over multiple gifts a month.

There are several benefits to ONLINE giving

SIMPLICITY

Many times it's easier to set up an automatic, recurring payment than it is to write a check or bring cash every time you give. Also, if you don't have any cash on-hand to give as a love offering for a visiting missionary or to provide toward our deacon fund which is used to help our church bless those who are in need, you have the convenience of using your device to give online.

SECURITY
We utilize an encrypted secure website for our giving portal to ensure protection of your sensitive personal information and giving history.

TRANSPARENCY
You have the ability to quickly see your online giving history directly through our giving portal instead of requesting a personalized report.

DISCLAIMER

Giving should be done cheerfully and out of the abundance that the Lord provides; it should not be done out of coercion, guilt, or obligation. Please do not go into debt in order to give to the church.
