Benefits of Electronic Giving
You can prioritize giving in your budget. The Bible teaches giving is to be a “first” and not a last or leftover matter in your life (Proverbs 3:9-10). With electronic giving, your giving can be done automatically.
Save time and paper. Electronic giving simplifies the processing and handling of funds by Church staff and strengthens our base of regular support. Have you ever forgotten your gift because of travel or other scheduled or unscheduled interruptions? There is even the option to set up a reoccurring payment schedule that works for you.
FCCS teaches that one should not give what they do not have. We offer online giving only as a convenience and not as a way to circumvent sound biblical money management principles or in any way to incur debt.
Nearly all banking institutions now offer what is commonly known as Bill Pay. Bill Pay allows bank customers to pay their bills electronically with automatic payments that can be organized however the customer chooses (i.e., weekly, monthly, occasionally, etc.). It is free to bank customers and easy to use. There are no fees incurred with Bill Pay and 100% of your contribution goes to ministry at First Christian Church of Seminole. A growing number of families are now choosing this easy and free method of giving. To begin giving directly to FCCS in this manner, visit your bank web site to set up FCCS as a payee, no different than you may do for your monthly bills. Instead of an electronic draft to a bank account, you would provide FCCS’s mailing address and your bank will send a check directly to us according to your designated time frame.
