St. Johns has established this program to provide a convenient, online option for individuals to make regular offerings and special financial gifts to the church. This is available for both members and non-members.
How does electronic giving benefit you? Electronic giving reduces check writing for frequent givers and allows your donations to continue uninterrupted while you are absent. For members who do most of their financial business online it makes giving more convenient because electronic payment is what they are used to. And electronic giving costs you nothing extra; it might actually save you money because no checks to write means no checks to pay for and it could save postal costs if offerings are mailed.
How does electronic giving benefit our church? Electronic giving greatly simplifies the church's administration as there will be no envelope to open and count, no checks for us to deposit and no need to manually post your donation to your contribution record because it is all automated. Also, it should help to maintain consistent giving during Summer months when our church sees a dramatic drop in our weekly offerings due to vacations and seasonal relocation.
The program is very flexible and includes options for one-time or recurring gifts that can be scheduled to occur weekly, monthly, etc. It also allows you to automatically pay directly from your checking or saving accounts, as well as a debit or credit card.
For even more convenience, you can use the GIVE+ app which is available through the App Store or Google Play. When downloaded, follow the prompts and enter St. Johns
as the church name. Select our St. Johns location from the list at the address, W3569 County Road M, La Crosse, Wi.
You can then setup your personal account.
The following are important points of information:
- The system is extremely secure to protect your account access and personal information.
- The options for payment, amounts of your offering and intervals of payment can be easily changed at anytime.
- You may terminate this online arrangement at anytime,
- If you are a member, your record of giving will continue to be updated as in the past, once you set up an account with the required profile information. This will allow the church Treasurer to link your electronic giving with your envelope number.
