ONLINE GIVING FAQ

  • What is online giving?
  Online giving is a way to make donations electronically by automatic deductions from your checking or savings account, debit card or credit card.
  • Is giving online safe?  Yes! In fact, it is less risky than checks, since checks can be lost, stolen or destroyed. It also has an extremely high rate of accuracy.
  • How is my contribution automatically deducted? Once you complete the information online, the contribution amount you specify will automatically be transferred from your bank account or debit card to the church’s bank account.
  • When will my contribution be deducted from my account?
  On the date you specify.
  • If I do not write checks, how do I keep my checkbook balance straight?
 You simply record your contribution in your check register on the appropriate date, since your contributions are made at a pre-established time.
  • Without a cancelled check, how can I prove I made my deduction?
 Your bank statements give you an itemized list of electronic transactions. It is your proof of contributing. Yearly contribution statements are also sent out in January.
  • What does it cost?
 NOTHING and you save the cost of the check.
  • Can I cancel at any time?
 Yes, you can cancel your authorization of recurring transfers at any time through your online account.
By accepting credit cards, we are not encouraging a lifestyle of debt. If possible, we would only accept electronic checks and debit cards. However, the major credit card companies prohibit organizations from only taking debit cards. As such, it is impossible for us to prohibit the use of credit cards, while allowing the convenience of debit cards. We encourage all of our contributors to have cash to back their transactions and not place anything on a credit card for which they do not have the intentions or funds to pay-in-full, when their monthly statement arrives.
