Giving FAQ

Is online givine secure?

We've taken steps to ensure that the giving process is safe and secure from beginning to end. All of your giving data is secured by SSL encryption. SSL is an acronym for "Secure Socket Layer," a security protocol that provides communications privacy over the Internet. It is the same technology used by banks and e-commerce companies such as Amazon.com to keep your information safe and secure during transactions.

Are there any fees involved?

There are no fees to you for online giving transactions.

Can I designate my gift for specific purposes?

Regular gifts (tithes and offerings) includes our ADVANCE initiative projects and all ministries of the church (e.g. personnel, facilities, ministries, missions and benevolences.).

With online and mobile giving, you may also designate offerings (typically over and above regular giving) to the Mercy (Deacons) Fund for the ministry of the Grace deacons and deaconesses within the church and community. Other designations are not possible through online giving at this time. For additional information on designated giving, click here.

Can I schedule a recurring donation?

For online and mobile app giving you can specify the start and stop date range and time frequency for a recurring gift. (e.g. twice a month for the next year).

Will I receive a contribution statement/summary?

For regular attendees of Grace, paper statements are provided quarterly. All donors receive an annual statement for personal/tax records. You can also view online giving or mobile app giving history through the Give website page or app. And if you have a Gracedover.com regular attendee account (login here), you can view at any time your contributions history for all methods of giving (whether online, mobile, text or in the offering plate Sundays). Plus you can print your own summary statements.

What about when the offering plate is passed in church?

Online giving can supplement or go hand in hand with giving in church services. It is intended to serve our digital age where increasingly fewer people using checkbooks or bringing checkbooks to church.  However, when the offering plate is passed in our church services, we are always encouraging everyone to give their lives fully to the Lord (time, talents, possessions/finances). It isn’t just putting money in the plate, it is offering ourselves wholly to Him in worship. So giving online doesn’t take the place of our offering in worship, it’s just one of many ways we can give our lives to the Lord.
