Many people today regularly deal with financial things online, whether keeping track of their accounts, purchasing items, or making donations. Recognizing this, we have now made it convenient to give an offering to our Lord and support St. Paul's gospel ministry.
Giving to the Lord by giving to ministry needs is something that God encourages us to do and that God will bless. You see the quote from 2 Corinthians 9 in the graphic above. There is wonderful encouragement and guidance for giving found in 2 Corinthians 8 & 9.
Just so you know what to expect:
Clicking the "Donate here" link below, or the "ONLINE GIVING" graphic above, will take you to a third-party website, Faithlife.com. You can donate either with a credit/debit card or by entering your checking account info--your bank routing number and account number. There are minimal processing fees charged to us with each transaction. The fees are taken right out of the gift. Because of greater processing fees with credit/debit cards, it costs less to use your checking account than a debit/credit card. There is also an option for you to cover the processing fees yourself. You simply click a box and, for example, your $25 gift to the church becomes $25.95 in the case of a credit/debit card ($25 to the church and 95 cents in processing fees to Faithlife). Otherwise, the church gets $24.05. For using your checking account, the processing fee for a $25 gift is 56 cents. You don't have to pay the extra for the processing fees. We just want you to understand that the option is available.
If you really like technology and convenience, you can also text "Give" and then the amount you want to give, for example, "Give 50" to (608) 424-2445. It will redirect you to our giving webpage to complete the offering, but after you've done it once, you can then give via text without the extra step of going to the giving webpage.
Thank you for your prayers for each other and our called workers and your continued support of our ministry.
