Times are changing, and the number of people choosing to give electronically is growing dramatically.  That is why we have set up a convenient way for our members to ensure consistent giving and allow another method for members to make regular donations.

With our user-friendly E-Giving there are not set-up costs, contracts, or minimum number of transactions needed.  Members can easily create a one-time or recurring gifts to the church from home, work, vacation, or anywhere that life finds them.

To get started it’s as easy as just clicking on our link: E-Giving
