There are multiple ways for you to give at Gateway Church. Each method allows for God's work to be done as you are faithful to His calling to give back.
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.·
Helping Gateway Church – Online giving is more cost effective for our church to process, and it makes our record keeping much easier.
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 church office. Plus, 100% of your gift goes to the ministries of Gateway Church because there are no processing fees.
To sign-up, complete an auto-debit form and mail or fax the completed form to the Gateway Church office to have your giving automatically deducted from your checking or savings account. Call or email us and we will be glad to mail one to you, you can pick one up at our church office, or you can download the form from the link on the left.
TITHES AND OFFERINGS
Financial giving at Gateway Church 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 Gateway Church is funded by God's provision through the tithes and offerings of faithful Gateway members and attenders. At Gateway we honor God's provision by exercising wise and faithful stewardship, ethical business practices, and full accountability so that the financial integrity of Gateway remains beyond reproach.
