What is e-Giving?

How often will the amount be deducted from my account?
That’s up to you. You can make a one-time contribution or set up recurring contributions from a list of option from weekly to quarterly.
What if I want to change information on my recurring set up?
Simply click on the drop-down menu, choose Recurring, click on the payment to edit, choose Edit, and make the corrections.
How much does e-Giving cost?
There is no cost to you and a nominal fee per transaction to the church. To lower cost we would recommend monthly contributions but we understand that weekly donations may fit into your budget better.
Can anyone at the church see my account numbers?
No one at the church has access to your personal information.
What do I put in the offering plate when it comes around during worship?
Small laminated certificates are located in the pews. If you would like, you can place the certificate in the offering plate to show that you have given.
What if I try it and I don’t like it?
You can cancel your recurring contribution at any time.
What if I still have questions?
You may email Dee Hooper at firstname.lastname@example.org.
