Why does Bethany offer online giving?
We realize that there is a significant trend in our church family away from paper and towards electronic means of payments for most of their financial transactions. We are aware of several families who rarely use cash at all, and only presently use checks for their weekly giving.
We believe that one particular mode of financial exchange is not necessarily more spiritual or acceptable than another. The means of giving is not the issue – but the heart/motivation, and to some extent perhaps – the amount. But specifically how the transaction occurs is not a moral issue – as long as it is an expression of a heart in good faith, with integrity and sincerity, in the response of worship and gratitude.
Is it possible to give using a credit card?
Is there a cost associated with online giving?
Is there a way to electronically give during the worship service?
