In addition to the more traditional methods of giving, church members may choose to make their contributions to the church using Online Giving. Clicking the Online Giving button will take you to our home page at Vanco Services, the company we have chosen to provide this function after detailed research. The list of FAQs below will answer most questions about the Online Giving capability.
Online giving is a method of giving using an automatic transfer program that allows you to make contributions without the hassle of writing checks.
Online giving simplifies your contributions by decreasing the number of checks you write to the church. No more last minute check writing as you are running out the door to attend worship service. This option also helps the church by ensuring consistent donations throughout the year, particularly in the usually lower-attended summer months.

Online giving does not cost you anything. The church pays the fees for online giving by transactions. If you give by Virtual Check the fee for the church is comparable to the fee the church pays if you gave the same amount by check and dropped it in the offering. If you opt to give by Visa or Mastercard, the church also pays a small percentage of each transaction.
