The Pledge Card form does NOT submit payments. You will still need to bring/mail your payments to the church, or use one of the options below to set up an automatic payment.
If you prefer a physical pledge card that you can mail into the church office, click HERE. You can print the form, fill it out, and send it to the church office c/o the Financial Secretary.
Sharing a Financial Donation
There are two options for making a financial gift through this online giving page. First, you must determine if you would like to give a one-time or recurring donation. Then you will be redirected to our online transaction page. Once the transaction is completed you will be sent back to our website.
Designated Funds: You may give to a special offering, memorial, or particular ministry. In order to designate your giving, put a note in the Optional Memo line before clicking the “Give” button. Be as specific as possible to make sure your donation is directed to the correct place. On the other hand, if you would like to make a general donation leave the memo line blank.
Recurring Donations: If you are setting up a recurring donation for your pledge or financial gift, the online transaction page will ask for the frequency of payments (weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, etc.), how many payments, and the payment start date. You may want to consider setting it up so that it only extends through the end of that calendar year. By having it stop automatically at the end of the year, it is much easier to change your pledge or gift amount for the new calendar year. You simply come back to this page each year and set up your new amount for the new calendar year.
If you find that you need to stop or alter your recurring donation, you must contact the Financial Secretary. The office does not have access to any information pertaining to pledges and donations, but can help connect you to the current Financial Secretary.
