E-giving FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

What is E-Giving?

E-Giving is short for electronic giving. It is an automatic transfer program that allows you to make contributions without the hassle of writing checks.

How does it work?

Go to our website, and click on the “E-Giving link” Then, simply follow the directions to authorize an ACH deduction and you can make a donation via your checking or savings account or credit/debit card; it will be transferred directly to the Church’s account.

What company provides this service?

We have partnered with NCS Services to provide this service on our behalf. They have been offering E-Giving since 2004. This company services thousands of Churches and non-profit companies around the world.

Can I donate to various funds and causes in the Church?

Absolutely. You will be able to designate exactly what fund you would like for your donation to benefit. We will be updating the giving options on an ongoing basis based on the focus of our various ministries.

How often will the amount be deducted from my account?

That’s up to you. You can make a one-time donation or set up recurring donations. There are 5 recurring options; Weekly, Bi-weekly, Semi-Monthly, Monthly and Quarterly.

What benefit does this provide the Church?

E-Giving allows us to streamline our administrative process which in turn will allow us to focus more time on our true purpose of ministry. E-Giving also encourages stabilized recurring giving so that we can budget our donations to their best possible use.

Can I look up my donations online?

You can view all donations completed online, print out a statement, and even use it for tax purposes. Please note that the online statement will not show any offerings you gave at the Church (e.g., checks & envelope giving). You will still receive your complete donation statement from the Church office.

How much does E-Giving cost?

It will not cost you anything. The benefits outweigh the nominal transactions the Church incurs.

Is E-Giving Secure?

Absolutely! Our provider has the highest security standards and is PCI Level 1 Compliant.

What do I put in the offering plate when it comes around during worship?

You do not need to put anything in the offering plate. However, you will receive a printed receipt of your donation that can be placed in the offering plate if you would like to do so.

What if I try it and I don’t like it?

You can cancel your automatic deduction schedule on the website at any time.

Can I use my credit/debit cards?

Yes, but we advise everyone to use their credit cards wisely.
