You now have the opportunity to contribute to God’s work by making financial donations online. We understand this isn’t for everyone. While we do not encourage the use of credit cards and incurring debt, we realize that many in today’s society are becoming more reliant on “plastic” and paying their bills electronically. We have decided to make this available to you because it will serve so many.

You may authorize your bank to allow First Church to deduct a specified amount from your account without having to write a check. You may also use your debit card, just like you pay bills or order merchandise online.

E-checking (Electronic Funds Transfer) is one way to give online, and there are smaller bank fees for the church to pay for each transaction. You also have the option of using your debit card. Please do not make contributions with a credit card if you are unable to pay off your card every month.

The Online Giving link on the top menu will take you to a secure site, where you can make a one-time gift or set up your recurring gift. When funds are transferred from your checking or savings account, or charged to your debit card, they are directly deposited to the church account and the church finance office receives notification allowing us to properly credit your giving record for tax purposes.

 How do I get started giving online? From the First Church of Christ home page, select Resources > Online Giving from the top menu.  In this area you can:
    • Make a new donation
    • Setup a recurring donation (and manage existing recurring donations)
    • View your Giving History

 Is my online giving secure? Yes. Every transaction is encrypted with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), the same industry-standard encryption trusted for online commerce with world-class financial organizations.

 When will the transaction go on my account? You set the date when you want your account charged.

 Can I give as little or as much as I want? Donations must be a minimum of $5.00 and there are no limitations on the maximum amount.

 What if I make a mistake and need to have a completed transaction reversed? Contact the church office immediately so your situation can be handled appropriately.

Thank you for your faithful support of God’s work. If you have any question, contact the Church Office and your questions will be answered quickly and confidentially.
