Since you're already online, you can give safely and
securely through a service called Adventist Giving. The reason we
recommend using this service is because it is free for you and the church.
This means instead of being charged the average 2.5% for each
credit/debit card transaction, 100% of your offering is received by the church.
You need to set up an account (one time) with a username and
password. There is an online offering envelope that you fill out each
time you give and then your debit/credit card or even check is processed. It's
fast, easy and completely secure.
IS IT SAFE TO GIVE ONLINE?Yes. In many ways giving online is safer than writing a
check because an electronic gift cannot be lost or stolen. The security of the
system is continually managed by Fellowship One.
ARE THERE ANY FEES INVOLVED WITH ONLINE GIVING?Not to you. You will not pay any fees with an online gift.
In addition, online gifts are a more cost efficient way for the church to
WHEN WILL CONTRIBUTIONS BE TAKEN FROM MY ACCOUNT?Contributions will be taken from your specified bank account
within 48 business hours of the date you requested. This time frame allows time
for the contribution to process through your bank and the church’s bank. If the
date of your contribution falls on a weekend or a holiday, the transaction will
be initiated on the next banking day.
