Online Giving Q&A

 

 What is the benefit of Giving online?

There are several reasons why online giving might be right for you. One simple reason is that it helps you remember to give. If you’re like me I forget my wallet all the time. 30% of churchgoers actually leave their wallets at home Sunday mornings, but they don’t forget their cell phone. Another good reason for online giving is that it helps encourage consistent giving. If, for example, you decide at the beginning of the year that you want to commit to giving a certain amount to the church, setting up a recurring transaction will help you carry through on that commitment. Also, this consistent giving pushes us to be more dedicated to God in your finances than just giving whatever happens to be in our pockets when the plates are passed. Online giving can also save you time. The online giving form is extremely easy to fill out.
