Many individuals took advantage of giving online to their local church on the Conference website while staying at home during the worst parts of the pandemic. Since starting this program in March 2020, the Conference Treasurer’s Office has served 150 different churches and processed over $260,000 in tithes and offerings, depositing funds directly into church accounts twice per month. We have been honored to help in this way during these difficult times.
The demand for this service has gone down over the last several months, and we will be discontinuing it at the end of August. The pastors and finance teams of the churches who used this service have been notified by email and are encouraged to investigate opportunities for implementing their own electronic giving programs.
Here are some resources to help with that research.
