Using Online Giving or Your Envelope Really Helps! It's much easier for our volunteer counters to count your church contributions if you use the envelopes mailed to you every two months and even easier for you if you opt for online giving. The envelopes have your name and address preprinted on them, just fill in the amount. Online giving can be automatic for weekly donations or manual for special collections and is safe and secure. Please help us to keep accurate records for your end of the year statement. We appreciate your help.
