Financial Giving

Giving financially is a way for all of us to participate in what God is doing right here in our own community, as well as around the world.  Your giving helps meet physical and spiritual needs of people beyond the walls of our sanctuary.  You are also impacting people and communities in Guatemala and Cuba through our global Living Waters partnerships.  We appreciate your joining us in our mission. Your faithful contributions help bring life and freedom to individuals locally and around the globe.

  • Online giving is a convenient and secure way for donors to give. It is cost effective for the church as it eliminates the manual processing of paper checks and cash.

  • You can give online from either your checking or savings account. This type of electronic transaction is sometimes called E-Checking or Electronic Fund Transfer (EFT).

  • Yes. The site will allow you to view the history of your online giving. Please note that any contributions you make with a regular check or cash will not be reflected on your online record and therefore the online history report should not be used for tax purposes.

     The church will continue to mail contribution statements to your home for tax purposes. These statements will show both your giving at church and your online giving.

  • Immediately after submitting your contribution, you will receive an e-mail confirmation from our online service provider(s) – Givelifly, EasyTithe, or Paypal.

  • You will not pay any fees with an online gift. The full amount of your gift will be tax deductible.

    The church pays a nominal $0.30 per transaction fee for each online gift from a checking or savings account. The church pays a normal 2.28% merchant fee for each online gift from a credit or debit card.  Because of this fee, we discourage the use of credit or debit cards when making substantial gifts.
