New Options for Giving!

I am so grateful for our congregation’s generous giving. Every time a box of supplies goes out the Ministry Center doors to a family in need, or a new discipleship class for kids starts, or we celebrate another baptism, I’m reminded that all these things are possible because people gave to support God’s work through our church.

And now, thanks to the recent work of Gene Halverson (our Leadership Team CFO) and Maureen Phinney, (our Financial Secretary) we have some new convenient options for giving. Options that give you more control and flexibility than ever before.

You are now able to start, change or end your automatic giving plans through logging onto our church website and clicking on the “Give” tab. There you will find options for checking account, debit and credit card giving. You can give as a one time donation, or as part of an ongoing giving plan. We especially appreciate gifts via checking. When you use “Checking” no merchant fees are deducted – so every bit of your gift can be used for ministry. You can designate your gift to the giving category of your choice. The general

fund supports most of our ministry and missions budget.

As always, your giving remains completely private. The only person in the church (other than you and the Lord) who has full access to your giving record is our Financial Secretary.

If you do not yet have your own login and password to our website, a link for setting one up can be found in the lower right hand corner of the website – or by clicking here.

Those who already have an electronic giving plan through the church may see some of their existing giving information already on their own private section of the website. For many, your existing giving plan will be continued automatically. In some cases, our Financial Secretary may be contacting you to see about migrating your giving plan to the new system. In addition, your Bank statement may look slightly different, since giving plans will be going through “BluePay” rather than “Vanco.”

Thanking you for your generous partnership in the Gospel,

Pastor Andrew

2 Corinthians 9:6-8 (NIV)
6 Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. 7 Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 8 And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.
