Online Giving allows us to give their tithes or offerings to the church using a secured online connection. Facilitated through United Community Bank, your donation goes directly from your checking or savings account into the church's bank account. You may choose to make a one-time online donation, or you can easily set it up to automatically deduct the same amount each month and send it to the church. You may choose to designate your gift to a specific purpose, or you may simply direct it to the general budget fund. Not only are your gifts transacted across a secured connection, but you also receive a confirmation screen as well as an email confirming the transaction.
For those who choose to give online, it only takes about a minute to generate your transaction. You immediately have a paper record of your gift as well as an email confirmation, and it goes directly into the church's bank account. If you choose to use the recurring transaction feature, all you have to do is set it up once. For those who might be out of town or unable to attend services, you can take care of your offering online as long as you have Internet access. It is easy, convenient, and secure!
Online giving also benefits the church in several ways. First, it saves the staff from having to add up and deposit offerings, and it can make the funds available more quickly.
