Online giving is a direct payment program whereby your contribution is debited automatically from your checking, savings, or credit card account and directed into Grace’s bank account.
Security and convenience make online transactions an increasingly popular means of donating to an organization. Plus, Grace enjoys administrative savings (manual check processing and record keeping add up in a hurry). You also can take advantage of the discipline that recurring donations can provide for your giving – it makes it easy to fulfill stewardship commitments, even when you can't attend church. You never have to bring cash or checks to church.
To give on-line click here. You will be guided through your online giving account set-up and you will be prompted to select your payment method (bank debit or credit card) and contribution information. It's that easy!
Once you set up your online giving account through our church website, the contribution amount you specify will automatically be transferred from your bank account (or credit card account) to the church's bank account.
Your first contribution will be debited immediately when you set up your account. Recurring debits will re-occur on the frequency chosen from the first debit. For example, if you set up your account and make a contribution on September 12th, and if you choose monthly contributions as your frequency, the next debit will occur on October 12th.
Donations must be in whole dollar amounts (i.e. no cents). For example, if you type in $25.09 as your contribution, the contribution amount will read as $2,509. There is a minimum of $1 and there are no limitations on the maximum amount.

Yes. Online giving is less risky than writing checks or bringing cash to church. Electronic contributions cannot be lost, stolen or destroyed. All information is encrypted with 256 bit SSL encryption. SSL is an acronym for "Secure Socket Layer", a security protocol that provides communications privacy over the internet. It is the same technology used by banks and e-commerce companies such as Amazon.com to keep your information safe and secure during transactions.
Grace will be charged a fee ranging from 1.9%-2.3% of the contribution amount + .30 cents per transaction for debit and credit cards, and 1% of the contribution amount for ACH bank account transactions (e-checks). These are the most competitive rates we found as we evaluated several different ways to give. Your giving statement will show the full value of your contribution.
Yes, you can specify whether you want your contribution made one-time, weekly, every two weeks (bi-weekly), twice per month (bi-monthly), and monthly. You can set up as many schedules as you would like, so it is possible to give a monthly gift as well as a weekly one.
Yes! The default option is the General Fund, so you will need to select the Deacon’s Fund from the Fund field. When you schedule your contribution, click the down arrow on the Fund field and the Deacon’s Fund will appear as an option.
