In reviewing the cost of providing online giving, we found it was costing the church between 1.5-3.0 % to process the tithe or gift. In order to be good stewards, we felt we could not continue that avenue of giving and not have it fully contributed to the church or event.
We are suggesting that you look at your bank or credit union and use their bill pay program (a free service provided to customers by banks and credit unions). After you process the payment, the church receives a check within a few days that pays your tithe or gift.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at the church (260.490.8585). Thank you for your understanding.
