GIVING @ ABC
WAYS TO GIVE AT ABC: At ABC there are multiple ways to give. Each method allows for God's work to be done as you are faithful to his calling to give back. Find one that's right for you...
There are several benefits to online giving for both you and our church. Some of them are. . .
Faithfully Honoring God - When you sign up to give online you are deciding in advance to faithfully give. God always blesses that kind of faith! The Bible teaches that we are to honor God with the “First Fruits” of our labor (Proverbs 3:9). By setting up a recurring contribution that is scheduled to come out of your account on the day you specify, you can ensure that your First Fruits are faithfully given back to God.
Simplicity - You won’t have to remember whether you gave this month or send in an offering by mail when you’re on a trip.
Security – We utilize an encrypted secure website for your online records. Online giving is more secure than giving with a check or cash because an electronic gift can’t be lost or stolen.
Focus – Instead of having to worry about writing a check and filling out an envelope during the service, you can be fully focused on the worship service, knowing that you have already given your offering.
AUTOMATED BANK DEBIT
Automated Bank Debit is the easiest and most effective way to automate your giving. Once it is set up, you may update or change your giving at any time by simply contacting The ABC office.
To sign-up, complete an auto-debit form and mail the completed form to The ABC office to have your giving automatically deducted from your checking or savings account. Complete instructions are in the download.
Appreciated Marketable Securities are a great way to maximize your giving, because you receive an immediate income tax deduction for the full fair market value of your securities. In addition, you pay no capital gains tax on the difference between your cost and the fair market value.
TITHES AND OFFERINGS
Financial giving at ABC can generally be divided into two categories: tithes and offerings. The Bible teaches us that we worship the Lord with our tithe, which is ten percent of our income contributed to the church on a regular basis. You can learn more about tithes here. When we feel called to give over and above our tithe, we do so as an offering.
The ministry of The ABC Church is funded by God's provision through the tithes and offerings of faithful ABC members and attenders. At ABC we honor God's provision by exercising wise and faithful stewardship, ethical business practices, and full accountability so that the financial integrity of ABC remains beyond reproach. Our mission is facilitated through our system of internal controls over financial reporting and our internal budgeting and reporting processes.
Members of ABC may request a copy of our most recent financial statements or ask general questions about our financial practices at any time by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org
