*** FLOOD RELIEF DONATIONS: If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation to help the victims of the August 2016 flood, we have a dedicated flood fund you can give to at this electronic giving link. When you give electronically, you will have a drop down option to select either the '2016 Flood Disaster Relief' fund or the 'General Budget' fund. ALL gifts to the 2016 Flood Disaster Relief fund will go toward the unmet needs of flood survivors in our community whether they attend New Covenant Church or not. Recipients will be considered without regard to race, religion, etc. Our aim is to identify dire unmet needs and offer what assistance we can in the name of Christ.
In an age when most Americans do commerce online, New Covenant Church offers the convenience of giving your tithes and offerings electronically. It is fast and extremely secure. In fact, this online giving portal uses the same high level of data encryption that Wall Street and the banking industry uses to protect the information from prying eyes. When you click the online giving link on a desktop, laptop or mobile device, you are taken to a secure page where everything you enter is encrypted (encoded) using 256-bit encryption. Industry experts acknowledge that 256-bit encryption has never been "broken into". If you've ever done your personal banking online, booked a hotel online or bought something from Amazon, then you've used such high-level encryption. In fact, New Covenant Church does not have any access to your credit card, debit card or checking account information. We are only supplied with your name, address, email and dollar amount of your gift. Furthermore, even the company providing these services has no access to your encrypted credit or debit card number. Rest assured, much care has been taken to secure your information.
There are 2 ways to give electronically:
1. ONLINE You click the link on this page to be taken to the online giving page. From there it only takes a few seconds to supply your information (name, address, etc.) and make a donation. You may make a one-time donation or a recurring donation where the same amount is given every week, month, etc. as you choose. We encourage recurring giving for regular donors as it helps maintain some stability in our week to week finances. There is a small administrative cost for online giving. In fact, everyone, business or church, that receives payments or donations electronically pay such costs. The transaction fee is always paid by the church unless you check a little box (website giving only, not an option for text giving) which adds 3% to your gift to help us offset those costs. We hope you'll consider helping us with the costs of providing the convenience of e-giving.
2. BY TEXT You can give by text using your cell phone. Text the dollar amount you want to donate to 225.224.7212. You will quickly receive a text with a link to a secure giving page. It only takes a minute to complete the donor information and complete the donation. Once you've take a few seconds to complete the information, you should not have to complete it again on either the website or your cell phone. Any time you feel led to give by text, simply text $50 (example) to 225.224.7212. Feel free to add this phone number to your cell phone contacts and perhaps save it as "Online Giving" so you can quickly find it.
You will receive an email receipt for each donation and will be able to login and look all of your online donation history at any time. On this system you will only be able to see a history of donations made electronically, not for donations made with cash or check.
We need our members to support God's work prayerfully and sacrificially so the proclamation of the gospel here and abroad can continue unhindered. Make use of this online option to establish a pattern of regular giving to your home church. God will honor your obedience and you will know the joy of supporting your faith family and the mission of God globally.
