Yes, we are integrating the online giving with our church management software to continue to track all your contributions and provide reporting. In the past you may have received quarterly statements but going forward that may be reduced to annually or upon request. By visiting your online account you will be able to see all your online only contributions for the year.
This system will reduce the amount of time we spend on administrative tasks. The reporting helps to illuminate all giving trends with the ability to track and forecast monthly trends with graphical reports to view history, recurring giving, and more. Recurring donations are a great way to create a consistent stream of giving particularly during the slower summer months. Members will love this feature as they can easily activate automated recurring donations.

The fees assessed to the church are 2.6% plus $0.30 per transaction. The fee is 0.75% for checking account drafts so members are urged to use this method. We also pay $29 per month for the service and an addition $5/month for text giving. Donors can opt in to paying the fee in addition to their donation amount, or not. It is totally up to the individual.
We accept all major card brands including American Express as well as bank account drafts.
Ultimately, your contributions go to serving our Lord. Money is deposited directly to the church bank account within 2-3 business days in daily batches.
