Thank you for your interest in supporting the ministries of Grace Springs Bible Church!

Your gifts help us to continue sharing the good news of eternal life through Jesus Christ to our local community and the world.


If you have been blessed by the ministries of our church, we would be grateful if you would consider supporting our ministries through your contributions.  As it says in Scripture:

 

"Let each one give as he has purposed in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver."  (2 Cor 9:7)

 

We are eternally thankful to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, for the immeasurable gift of eternal life that He has given us through His life, death, and resurrection, to the glory of God the Father!

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Is it safe to give online?
Yes. Transaction information is encrypted using SSL technology, and is processed by systems that are PCI DSS compliant.

 

Is my contribution tax deductible?
We are a registered 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization (EIN 26-1692725*), therefore contributions are generally tax deductible as long as you have received no goods or services in exchange.  Please consult with a qualified tax professional regarding your specific situation.  *Please note that our EIN registration is under the name "Saving Grace Community Church", which is our formal nonprofit corporation name, and that "Grace Springs Bible Church" is a DBA name that we have registered to operate under.  Both names refer to the same church.

 

Am I required to create an account with a password in order to give online?
No.  There is a "Quick Give" option that allows you to give online without creating an account with a password.  We do ask for your email address in order to send a confirmation of your contribution.  If you think you'll be making periodic contributions (or if you would like to access your online giving history), we recommend creating an account via the "First Time?" link.  Having an account will allow you to log in and retrieve your giving history, as well as manage any scheduled giving.

 

How do I create an account for periodic giving and access to my giving history?
When you click on the above button to give, a new web page will appear.  To create an online giving account, click on the "First Time?" link, and you'll be presented with a form requesting your name, address, phone, email address, and a password to protect access to your account.  The email address and password you provide will be required in order to log in and access your account.  The password you provide should be a new password, and should not be a password that you have used for any other online account or service.  We recommend using a password that is at least 10 characters long, containing a mix of upper & lower case letters as well as numbers, and that cannot be guessed or derived based on well known information about you (for example, don't use your name plus birthday).

 

Are there any fees involved with giving online?
Not to you. You will not pay any fees over and above your contribution.  A small percentage of your contribution goes to the card processing company that handles the transaction for us.

 

Can I contribute using my bank account?
Yes, as long as you have a debit card associated with your bank account (see more on debit/check cards below).  We do not accept E-Check (ACH) transactions.

 

Can I use a debit/check card to make a contribution?

Yes. You can use a debit card (also known as a check card), associated with your bank account as long as it has the Visa or MasterCard logo on it.  Debit cards are processed by the same electronic payment systems used to process credit cards, with some differences since the funds are deducted directly from your bank account.

 

Can I use a credit card to make a contribution?
Yes. You can use Visa, MasterCard, or Discover. We recommend that a credit card be used only if the full balance is paid each month.

 

How do I make a recurring contribution?
To make a recurring contribution, create an account (or log in using your existing account email and password), then select the "Scheduled Giving" option and fill in the online form specifying the frequency, amount, number of installments, method, etc.

 

If I want to schedule a recurring contribution, what are my options for the frequency of the contribution?
For recurring contributions, you have the option of giving weekly (each Sunday), bi-weekly (every other Sunday), once a month (1st or 16th), or twice a month (1st & 16th or 5th & 20th).

 

Can I change my personal information or the amount or the frequency of my contribution once I have set it up?
Yes. You can change or cancel your contribution at any time before the date of the contribution.  If you have an account, simply log in to the system using your email and password and make the necessary changes.

 

Can I review my donation history online?
Yes. When you set up an account, the site will allow you to view the complete history of your online contributions.

 

Will I still receive regular contribution statements from the church?
Yes. The church will continue to send year-end contribution statements for tax purposes. The statements will reflect all of your contributions, including those made online.  It is highly recommended that you create an account if you want to receive statements for tax purposes.

 

When will contributions show up on my credit or debit card account?
Credit and debit card transactions are initiated immediately, and will appear on your account within 4 business days.  However, the amount of the contribution will typically be shown as "pending" immediately after the transaction is submitted, thereby reducing your available funds by that amount.

 

Can I designate my contribution to a particular cause?
Contributions are designated for the General Budget by default.  We may make different fund designations available throughout the year.  When you're filling in the online giving form, you can click on the "To:" field (which contains "General Budget" by default) to see what other fund designations are available (if any).

 

How will I know that I set up my contribution correctly?
Immediately after submitting your contribution, you will receive an email confirming your contribution.

 

I have additional questions about online giving that have not been addressed. Who can I talk to?
For any questions, concerns or comments about the online giving system, please contact us.
