Benefits of Online Giving
There are several benefits to online giving for both you and the church.
Prioritize your budget:
In Proverbs 3:9-10 the Bible teaches that we are to honor God with the “First Fruits” of our labor. What these means is that in matters of finances, our tithe to God should come first. It’s easy to let our good intentions be compromised by the expenses and billing cycles of other financial commitments. By setting up a recurring contribution that is scheduled to come out of your account on the day you specify, you can avoid the possibility that other expenses might rob you of the joy of giving back to God.
Simplify your schedule:
Instead of needing to worry about writing your contribution check during the service, you can be fully engaged with the worship service, knowing that you have already given your gift. Or have you ever forgotten your tithe or fallen behind because of travel or other schedule interruptions? Online Giving provides a way to strengthen your faithfulness in giving. After setting up a recurring gift, you won’t be faced with forgetfulness. You will not need to remember if you gave this month or sent in your offering checks when you are out of town.
Protect your gift:
Online giving is more secure than writing a check because an electronic gift can’t be lost or stolen. Our system is continuously managed by Fellowship One. For additional information on how Bayside Woodland keeps your information and contributions secure see security.
Support your church:
Through Online Giving you expedite your gift and simplify our accounting because the information is logged and deposited automatically. Your faithful gifts also strengthen the base of regular support helping Bayside continue to fulfill its mission to impact the world with the love and message of Jesus Christ.
By setting the pace in this new area, you can provide personal testimony of the benefits of tithing. As you plan and prioritize your giving, you will provide an example of spiritual maturity for others to follow.
