Benefits of Giving Online
There are several benefits to online giving for you, the church, and the denomination:
First Fruits – In Proverbs 3:9 we are taught to honor the Lord with the “First Fruits” of our labor. By setting up a recurring contribution that is scheduled to come out of your account on the day you specify you can insure that your First Fruits are given back to God.
Simplicity – You will not need to remember if you gave this month or send in your offering checks when you are out of town.
Security – Online giving is more secure than giving with a check in that an electronic gift can’t be lost or stolen.
No Distractions – Instead of needing to worry about writing your contribution check during the worship service, you can be fully engaged with the wroship service, knowing that you have already given your offering.
Helping the EMC – It is more cost effective for the denomination to process online contributions. In addition, it simplifies the financial records the church needs to keep.
