There are several reasons why online giving might be right for you. One simple reason is that it helps you remember to give. One of our staff members has admitted that she had a problem remembering her checkbook on the weeks she wanted to give. Setting up her giving as a recurring monthly transaction removes the problem. Another good reason for online giving is that it helps encourage consistent giving. If, for example, you decide at the beginning of the year that you want to commit to giving a certain amount to the church, setting up a recurring transaction will help you carry through on that commitment. Also, this consistent giving pushes us to be more dedicated to God in your finances than just giving whatever happens to be in our pockets when the plates are passed. Online giving can also save you time. The online giving form is extremely easy to fill out. If you set up a recurring transaction, then you set it up once and let the system do the work for you the rest of the year.
