In 2 Cor. 8:7, we are encouraged to "excel in the grace of giving" which supplies the needs of God's people, ongoing ministry through the church, and ultimately results in thanksgiving and glory to God. By setting up a recurring contribution that is scheduled to come out of your account on the day you specify, you can ensure that you join with others in growing in the "grace of giving." Online giving simplifies the donation and record-keeping process for you and the church.
Why is using my checking account better for CF?
When you allow your gift to be withdrawn directly from your checking or savings account, the church is charged a transaction fee of 25 cents. When you use your debit or credit card, the church is charged a 2.75% fee on the transaction amount. For every $1,000 given, this is an extra $27.50 the church never receives. These savings add up. If you prefer, there is also the option for you to offset this fee, by checking the box provided you have the option to pay this processing fee on behalf of the church.
Why do I need to set up a profile?
As you give either a one-time donation or set up a recurring payment, you have the option to create a password-protected profile. This enables you to manage your automatic giving schedules and allows you to view and print your personal online donation history.
Are my transactions secure?
Our Financial Service Provider uses the highest level of security and confidentiality in processing electronic transactions, utilizing the latest technology to secure all of our transactions.
Credit Card Policy
Although our debit card processor also takes credit cards, we encourage you to live a debt-free lifestyle. When using a credit card, please exercise integrity and only give to the church if you have cash in your bank account to cover your donation.
