There are several benefits to online giving for both you and the church.
Making Our Stewardship to God a Priority In Proverbs 3:9-10 we are told to honor God with our first fruits and then promised that God would provide for our needs. When we make God our first priority we show we trust Him in all aspects of our lives. When we establish a regular pattern of giving we demonstrate that trust.
Making our Stewardship to God Simple Often we are forgetful people whether we forget our checkbook, to leave our tithe when we are unable to attend, or we fail to offer that tithe when we return. By making an online account with a set draft we can offer our tithes in a simple and prioritized manner.
Making our Stewardship to God Secure Online giving is a secure way to insure your tithes and offerings are directly deposited into the church’s account and credited to your giving statement. Online contributions are deposited and logged automatically.

Malachi 3:10–12 (ESV) “10 Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. And thereby put me to the test, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you a blessing until there is no more need. 11 I will rebuke the devourer for you, so that it will not destroy the fruits of your soil, and your vine in the field shall not fail to bear, says the Lord of hosts. 12 Then all nations will call you blessed, for you will be a land of delight, says the Lord of hosts. When we understand that all we have is a gift or blessing from God which we are to be good stewards of then being asked to return to God only 10% is such an easy thing to grasp. In addition to giving us everything we have He has offered unto us forgiveness for the sins we commit through the redemption of His Son Jesus Christ.”
