Bridges Church, The elders believe that everything we have been gifted with, everything we own, and all our talents and resources completely come from God. So when we give, we simply offer Him a very small portion of the abundance he has already given us as an act of worship to God. We are excited to offer another option in the way we worship God through our giving. You can now donate and give online. The website is completely secure, and there are many different options offered, such as one-time gifts and recurring giving. Please follow the link below or click here to get started. If you have any questions about online giving you can view the FAQ’s or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We thank you for your support of this community and praise God for His continual provision.
Online Giving FAQs
• Will it matter for income tax purposes, if I give online or with a check at church? o No. Both forms of giving are 100% tax deductible and you will still receive quarterly and yearly statements from Bridges showing your giving history. • Is the website secure to use? o Yes. The website uses SSL transaction security and is monitored daily by McAfee security. • Can I set up recurring giving? o Yes. You can choose to do a one-time donation or set up automatic recurring giving. There are multiple frequency options for recurring giving. • Do I need to set up an account to give online? o Yes and No. If you would like to give a one-time donation, then you don’t need to set up an account. If you would like to set up recurring giving then you will need to have an account. • Can I stop or change my recurring giving? o Yes. You can stop or change your giving at anytime. You can make all those changes once you have logged into your account. • What forms of payment are accepted? o You can use any debit card, check card, or credit card with a Visa or MasterCard logo. • Is there a fee to use the online giving service? o Easy Tithe, the vendor that we have selected for the website, will charge a fee to Bridges Church for each transaction, but there are no fees charged to the person making the donation. Providing this service costs Bridges about 3% of the donated amount. Since we don’t incur a comparable charge to deposit paper checks, we would encourage you to continue writing checks if you are comfortable doing so.
