Automating your giving is one of the best ways to build faithfulness in your stewardship of what God has given you. Many people want to participate in giving to their church but find it hard to remember to bring checks with them. Sometimes you may be out of town but would like to give anyway. Or, maybe you just like the convenience of handling your money online.
These options are available to you if you'd like to participate in online giving.
If your bank account provides Bill Pay, it is a great way to participate in giving to Neighborhood Church. This option allows you to monitor your giving from your checking or savings account, and you don't need to worry about remembering your check on Sunday. You are able to update or change the amount given just by contacting your bank, something you can do online with most banks.
Plus, 100% of the money you give goes to Neighborhood Church, since there are no processing fees.
If you would like to give through our website, we accept donations through PayPal. Just click the button below to get started. When you give through PayPal, a small portion of what you give does go to PayPal as a processing fee, instead of going to the church.
Benefits to Giving Online
There are several benefits to online giving for both you and our church. Some of them are. . .
- Faithfully Honoring God - When you sign up to give online you are deciding in advance to faithfully give. God always blesses that kind of faith! The Bible teaches that we are to honor God with the “First Fruits” of our labor (Proverbs 3:9). By setting up a recurring contribution (i.e. through your bank)that is scheduled to come out of your account on the day you specify, you can ensure that your First Fruits are faithfully given back to God.
- Simplicity - You won’t have to remember whether you gave this month or send in an offering by mail when you’re on a trip.
- Security – We utilize an encrypted secure website for your online records. Online giving is more secure than giving with a check or cash because an electronic gift can’t be lost or stolen.
- Focus – Instead of having to worry about writing a check and filling out an envelope during the service, you can be fully focused on the worship service, knowing that you have already given your offering.
