MORE ABOUT ONLINE GIVING
More and more, it seems that we're busier and busier. With EFCC's online giving solution, you won't have to remember whether or not you already gave this month. All of your giving can be set up and predetermined beforehand. You can even get and keep a record of transactions for tax purposes.
If using a credit card, we do encourage you to use it wisely and to avoid slipping into debt. The Lord desires generous giving from the heart. Those wanting to give should "give as the Lord prospers" and not via "borrowing."
Why Use EFCC's Online Service?
Besides the convenience factor, here are some other key benefits to online giving:
• It's a step of faith. When you sign up to give online via your credit/debit card or checing account, you are deciding in advance to faithfully give, and to do so both regularly and consistently (there are options to give monthly/bimonthly, etc.). This is what the Bible calls us to do, and "automatic" or online giving is simply a tool to aid consistent and faithful giving.
• It's another way to help the church, and you. When you elect to give in this way, it simplifies EFCC's account record keeping. And instead of scrambling to write a check during the church service when you forget that it's time to give, with the online giving service, you can sit back and enjoy the worship, since your donations are already set up.
• It's safe and secure. One of the best parts about donating online is that it's electronically protected. Security has become such a top priority in today's global economy with our online, Internet-driven world. We understand the concerns about privacy and security issues surrounding online contributions. Our online giving portal provides an environment for your transactions to occur safely and securely.

"Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver." - 2 Corinthians 9:6-7 (NASB)
