We are transitioning to a new online giving platform
We believe this service will better suit the needs of both our congregation and our administrative staff. There are a number of benefits to contributing to the church online:
- It is simple. Getting set up is quick and easy, click here to get started. Once you’ve set up payment data, you can give one-time gifts anytime, set up recurring giving, or even use the text-to-give feature to give in just a couple of seconds. When you create an account, your payment details are saved and you can view your giving at any time. Check out this short video for a tutorial.
- It is secure. Like, really secure. In fact, this giving platform is powered by Stripe, a certified "PCI Service Provider Level 1" payment processor. This is the most stringent level of certification available.
- It is private. Online gifts have the benefit of not being handled by too many people. In fact, your online gift isn’t viewed individually at all unless there’s a specific reason to (like you’ve requested a refund or the payment method produced an error). In contrast, paper gifts (cash and check) are necessarily handled by at least four people from offering basket to bank deposit.
- It is efficient. For everyone. Because of its simplicity, options for recurring gifts, and electronic record-keeping, giving online is a breeze for the donor, but it also significantly reduces the time that volunteers and administrative staff spend to process these gifts.
If you haven’t set up online giving in the past, now is a great time! If you’ve set up online giving in the past, please take some time to transition to this new service. When you’ve completed set-up, feel free to cancel any recurring gifts you may have set up in our previous giving platform - login below. If you encounter any problems along the way or you have questions, please contact the church office at 815-865-5638.
