ANOTHER WAY TO GIVE TO BETHLEHEM LUTHERAN CHURCH
If you are currently giving to Bethlehem Lutheran Church by cash, check or a pre-arranged electronic deduction for our Operating Budget or Mortgage Reduction you can now choose to set up electronic payment arrangements yourself online or through a mobile app using our e-Giving Program. Your automatic payments can be made from your checking, savings or by credit card.
Advantages of using our convenient e-Giving program include:
· When travel, illness or other circumstances prevent you from attending services, you will still be able to contribute.
· You will be able to make changes to your giving privately without having to contact our financial secretary.
· You will receive an e-mail confirmation of each donation and have the ability to look up your giving history at any time.
· e-Giving eliminates the need for our church tellers to process and input payments made by check or cash, saving them time and eliminating input errors.

We are happy to allow you to give online to both our general operating budget and mortgage reduction. As good stewards we want you to be aware that we do pay a percentage of your gift for the convenience, to our processing vendor. When you log in and begin processing your payment you will be given the option to choose to increase your donation (by 3% when paying by your credit or debit card or .5% when paying from your checking or savings account) to help offset the Church processing costs. You do not need to choose this option to process your payment. Thank you for your faithful stewardship in support of Bethlehem Lutheran Church.
