There are great benefits to online giving for both you and the church . . .
- Faithfully Honoring God - When you sign up to give automatically, you are deciding in advance to faithfully give. God always blesses that kind of faith! The Bible teaches that we are to honor God with the "First Fruits" of our labor (Proverbs 3:9). Be setting up a recurring contribution that is scheduled to come out of your account on the day you specify, you can ensure that your First Fruits are faithfully given back to God.
- Simplicity - You will not have to remember whether you gave this month or send in an offering by mail when you are on a trip.
- Security - We utilize an encrypted secure website for your online records. Online giving is more secure than giving with a check or cash because an electronic gift cannot be lost or stolen.
- Focus - Instead of having to worry about writing a check and filling out an envelope during the service, you can be fully focused on the worship, knowing that you have already given your offering.
- Helping South Bay Bible Church - Online giving is more cost effective for our church to process, and it makes our record keeping much easier.

Appreciated Marketable Securities are a great way to maximize your giving because you receive an immediate income tax deduction for the full fair market value of your securities. In addition, you pay no capital gains tax on the difference between your cost and the fair market value. For more information on giving stocks/bonds/securities to South Bay Bible Church, please call the church office at (631) 909-8241 or email at email@example.com.
A Note About Credit Cards
While we allow the use of credit cards for tithes and offerings, we still strongly encourage the use of electronic funds transfer rather than credit cards for two primary reasons:
- Although many pay off their credit cards each month, many also do not. We do not want to encourage someone to go into debt and pay interest on gifts given to the church.
- With electronic transfer, your entire gift goes to the church. When using a credit card, as much as 3% of your gift can go to the credit card company.

You can schedule new contributions at any time and can modify or cancel those contributions at any time prior to the date they are scheduled. Once the contribution has been processed, however, it cannot be cancelled. If you have any problems or questions related to this, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or (631) 909-8241.
