Now you can make your offertory gifts work harder than ever to support your church by participating in our
Online Giving program. When you participate, your gift will be transferred conveniently and securely from your
bank account or credit card directly to the church.

Your gift will go further than ever, allowing your church to reduce administrative costs, plan future projects with
greater efficiency, and spend more time on ministry (and less time on fundraising or account management).

Please understand that Online Giving is not intended to replace the traditional act of Sunday offertory, rather it
is meant to enhance it.  You may continue to receive offering envelopes if you wish.  Reusable cards will also
be available in the vestibule for Online Giving families to place into the basket, so they can still physically
participate in the Sunday offertory.  Please prayerfully consider Online Giving.
