Ways to Give
During Sunday Morning Worship
During our Traditional Service in the Sanctuary there are four offering plates located in the back by each aisle going up through the pews. You may place your offering in any of those plates during the service. During the offertory what two of those will be collected by the ushers and taken to the be placed on the altar. Two plates will remain in the back for those who have not placed their offering in prior to the service.
During our Contemporary Service in the Fellowship Hall, You can place your offering in the basket on the table by the altar at any point before or after the service.
Giving through your Banks Online Bill Pay Service
Most banks offer an online bill pay service at no cost. All you have to do is login to your online banking account and setup your online bill pay service with the amount you wish to give and if you would like it to be a recurring transaction. On the date you select, your bank will cut a check and mail it to the church, usually at no cost to you or the church. Many in our congregation already give using this method.
Giving by Mail
If you would prefer, you can give by check. You can mail your check to the church through the postal service or you can drop you donation off at the church in the mail slot on the outside of the building between Pastor Cindy's and Stacy's offices.
