God so loved the world that He gave His only Son.
As a people made in the image of God, giving is in our DNA. We invite you to help support the mission and ministry of Christ Lutheran Church through generous giving. Please do not give out of guilt or obligation. Remember, God loves a cheerful giver. Give out of thanks for what God has first given you. Give because you trust in God to provide for your needs as you generously give to the needs of others. Give because you believe in the mission of our church, which is to Love God, Love People and Follow Jesus out in service to the world.
We offer many different ways to give because we believe Generosity is one of the marks of a follower of Christ. You can give by using the offering plate on Sunday mornings, by having automated deductions from your bank account through Simply Giving, or through our new e-giving options.
Why do we have a new e-giving platform?
With technology advancing at such a rapid pace, more and more people use electronic forms of payment to pay for basic needs, make purchases and more. Young adults and families, especially, are turning to online banking to manage their finances, and almost exclusively use debit and credit cards versus checks and cash for most transactions.
To make giving more convenient for all of our church family, we are excited to announce the availability of online giving. Now, you can safely and securely give on our website, via the give+ app or even by text message right from your mobile device!
How does it work?
Our online and mobile giving is facilitated by VANCO, a secure giving platform used by churches around the country. They set up the technology that enables you to give anywhere, anytime, from any device. You can make a one time gift, respond to special giving appeals, or set up recurring donations. You can choose to donate as a guest, or set up an account that allows you to safely and securely schedule recurring donations and view your giving history.
