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. (2 Corinthians 9:7)
There are several benefits to online giving for both you and the church.
First Fruits – In Proverbs 3:9 we are taught to honor the Lord with the “First Fruits” of our labor. By setting up a recurring contribution that is scheduled to come out of your account on the day you specify you can ensure that your First Fruits are given back to God.
Simplicity – You will not need to remember if you gave this month or send in your offering checks when you are out of town.
Security – Online giving is more secure than giving with a check in that an electronic gift can’t be lost or stolen.
No Distractions – Instead of needing to worry about writing your contribution check during the service, you can be fully engaged with the worship service, knowing that you have already given your offering.
Helping our Team – Online contributions require less processing from our administrative staff since the information is logged and deposited automatically.
