“Whoever sows generously will also reap generously.
Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give...
for God loves a cheerful giver.” 2 Cor 9:6-7
What is online giving? Is it secure?
It is a convenient giving option that allows you to make secure donations directly from your checking or savings account using a computer or smart phone. Vanco Services provides over 10,000 churches with the ability to accept online donations, and they meet the highest standards of security.
Why should I try online giving?
Convenience. You can contribute while away from home or traveling. You can make a donation or support a cause at anytime (i.e. give your offering on payday or make a year end gift on Dec 31st).
Reliability. It is more secure & reliable than mailing in a check or using your bank's bill pay (which also depends on the USPS).
How does it help the church when I automate my giving?
Consistency. Unfortunately everyone missed a Sunday or forgets a checkbook from time to time. When people schedule their gifts online our church has more consistent support.
Faster, More Accurate Accounting. Online giving information can be imported directly to our contributions software making it easier for us to keep tract of contributions. This also saves time for our volunteers on Sundays and makes our deposits simpler.

How much control will I have? Can I designate my gifts online?
Once you create a profile (email & password) you are in complete control. You can choose to make your gift a one-time gift or recurring transaction. You can manage how often to give and how much to give. You can give to the general fund and/or to a specific cause (i.e. missions, designated gifts, Christmas offering, youth projects, etc.). Preferences can be changed anytime, but changes to recurring transactions must occur before noon at least two days ahead of the scheduled date.
