Ways To Give

1. Sunday Morning Corporate Worship

Each Sunday as a part our corporate worship service we have an opportunity to give.  Members of our hospitality team will pass baskets during our last song to collect the offerings.  We have offering envelopes available if you prefer to give in cash and would like to receive a tax receipt at the end of the year.  We also accept checks as well.  Please make checks payable to King’s Chapel.

2. Online Giving

You can give through our simple and secure online service Planning Center Giving.  Here, you can make payments using your credit card or checking account (ACH).  We want to reassure you that your gifts are safe and secure.  Planning Center uses Stripe for payment processing and Strip conforms to the highest set of security standards in the payment card industry. No one will have access to the type of sensitive information that could lead to an unauthorized transaction.  To give online select the “Give Online” button below.  For more information on giving online read our Online Giving FAQ section below.

3. Text to Give

Planning Center Giving also provides the easy option to give through a simple text! Text any amount to 84321 to give. It’s that easy.

4. Online Bill Pay

This is a convenient option because there is no fee and it occurs automatically.  Use your bank’s bill pay feature to set up recurring donations at no charge to King’s Chapel or to you.  Your bank’s online banking system should be able to guide you through this process.  Donations should be made payable to:

King’s Chapel

Online Giving FAQ

Q: Is it safe to give online? Yes. Stripe (Planning Center Giving’s payment processor) has been audited by a PCI-certified auditor and is certified to PCI Service Provider Level 1. This is the most stringent level of certification available in the payments industry. MORE INFO

Q: What types of bank accounts can I give from?
You can give online from your checking account via an ACH transaction. You can also give using your Credit/Debit card.  Though we  give the credit card option, we still want to encourage people to be wise stewards of their finances.  It is not our desire to see you go into debt.  If you are in debt or have a history of debt please refrain from using your credit card to give.

Q: Are there any fees involved with giving online?
Not to you. You will not pay any fees with an online gift.  However, there are transaction fees charged to King’s Chapel and a small portion of your gift does go towards paying those fees. (2.3% + 30¢/transaction for Debit/Credit Cards or $0.25/per transaction for ACH.)  Our preference is for you to use the ACH option as it is that option that will incur the least cost.

Q: Can I make a one-time gift?
Yes. The system allows you the option of either making a one-time gift or setting up recurring giving.

Q: If I want to set-up a recurring gift, what are my options for the frequency of my gift?
For recurring gifts, you have the option of giving weekly, every other week, monthly, or twice-monthly.

Q: Can I change my personal information or the amount or the frequency of my gift once I have set up my account?
Yes. You can change or cancel your giving at any time before the date of your next contribution. Simply select the “Login” option in the upper left hand side of the donation page and follow the instructions.

Q: Can I review my donation history online?
Yes. The site will allow you to view and print the complete history of your online contributions.

Q: When will contributions be withdrawn from my account?

Q: How will I know that I set up my gift correctly?
Immediately after submitting your contribution, you will receive an e-mail verification.

Q: Will my online giving be included in my end of the year tax receipt?
