What is the advantage of Online Giving?
It saves time! It saves work! It simplifies your life! You can avoid the hassle of writing and remembering checks! It can also help your consistency and faithfulness in giving.
The Bible indicates giving is to be a “first” and not a last or left-over matter in your life. It is easy to let our standards and intentions be compromised by the press of expenses and billing cycles. Online, your giving is done automatically. Online giving also provides a way to strengthen your faithfulness. Have you ever forgotten your gift, left it at home, or pledged to increase it in the future? Have you had times where you have fallen behind because of travel and other schedule interruptions? Online giving can help you to avoid these problems and be more faithful in giving. Online giving is also less risky than handwritten checks. It cannot be lost, stolen, or destroyed in the mail. It has an extremely high rate of accuracy and is easier for the church accounting office to process.
Once you authorize the EFT transfer, your specified contribution is electronically transferred directly from your checking or savings account to the church’s account. Options include a one-time, weekly, or monthly transaction. You can also designate which account(s) your donation is to go to.
