Cheerful giving to God


Why We Give

“Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” 2 Corinthians 9:6-7

help save the church money

Here are two ways to save the church money in processing fees:
1. In Realm, you can cover the processing fee each time you give. Just click that option in your giving through Realm and that will save the church some money.
2. If you can’t cover the processing fee, then can you consider using ACH (your bank account number) instead of a credit card. You will save the church 2% of your giving by not using a credit card as your payment option.
