Giving at Berean
God is the giver of all things and we graciously give him thanks for all things in our lives- our talents, finances, opportunities, possessions. In return, God asks that we only give back a portion as a show of worship, love and obedience. It is through this giving that we enable more work of the ministry to be done and be done more effectively. People reached with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, needs met, people served, and lived changed are all possible due to our faithfulness in giving.
We are thankful for the resources with which we are trusted and the responsibility our church has to make the most of it in the lives of those in the communities around our campus and throughout all the world. All giving goes to the work of the ministry through Berean and the efforts to make a difference in the lives of people.
As you use online giving, there is one way you could help the funds go even further. Using the check option instead of a credit/debit card saves us 1.5% on fees charged by the company that handles online giving. If that works for you, we would appreciate your help!
Will I receive a contribution statement?
Yes. We will mail your year-end giving statement directly to your home address.
What if I need to change credit/bank card information, giving date, or amount of scheduled giving?
You can view, edit or delete a scheduled contribution at anytime, including the credit card, date, frequency and amount as long as you created an account on the giving page.
Who do I talk to if I have more questions?
Contact Berean Baptist Church with any other questions or problems by calling the office at (972) 226-7803 or emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be glad to answer any questions and provide help with the online giving process.
Can I schedule recurring donations?
Yes. You can make a one-time offering, weekly, twice per month, monthly, quarterly, or yearly. You can set up as many scheduled offerings as you would like, so it is possible to give a monthly gift as well as a weekly one.
*When you schedule a recurring offering, a small validation fee (.10 to .30 cents) will pend on your account BUT WILL NOT be charged or post to your account. It is only for validation purposes. Give it 2-3 days to disappear.
Is online giving secure?
Yes. We take security very seriously and have taken steps to ensure that the giving process is safe and secure from beginning to end. All information is encrypted with 256-bit SSL encryption. SSL (Secure Socket Layer) is a security protocol that provides communications privacy over the Internet. It is the same technology used by banks and e-commenrce companies such as Amazon to keep your information safe and secure during transactions.
