Giving From a Grateful Heart

Tithes and offerings reflect a grateful heart that wants to give back to God a portion of what He has given us; in reality, what is already His. This is our opportunity to show God that He is first in our lives. James 1:17 says that “every good and perfect gift is from above …,” so we have an opportunity to tangibly show God He is the “owner” of our finances by giving back to Him the first of what He gives us. Your contributions help make possible the many ministries of Mountain Grove Chapel, both to our local community, and in our outreach around the world. Together we’re sharing God’s love in new and exciting ways!  Now along with the traditional way of giving during worship service, this page gives you the opportunity to make a contribution online through PayPal. FAQ’S about donating to Mountain Grove Chapel through PayPal Q. Is my information safe and confidential? A. PayPal is an online service for businesses and non-profits to accept payments and donations online. It’s a widely used and safe way for people to send money on the Internet. When you give through PayPal, the church does NOT see private information such as your debit card or bank account number. Q. Do I need a PayPal account to donate? A. No, on the secure PayPal website you can use a PayPal account if you already have one or you can use a debit or credit card.  Just click on “continue” beside the debit/credit card icons. Q. Are there any fees or costs to donate online? A. Yes and no. Paypal charges a small percentage of each donation as a processing fee.  The church absorbs that cost so there is no charge to you. We provide this feature as a convenience for you.  You receive credit for your full contribution. Q. How will I know my donation made it to the church? A. You will receive a confirmation email from PayPal immediately after you complete your donation. You can keep the email as a receipt for tax purposes. Your donation will also be entered into the church’s record-keeping system and formal receipts will be issued at year’s end upon request. Q. Can I designate how my donation is used? A. Unless otherwise designated, your donation will go to support the ongoing work and ministries of the church.  For other options, click on the drop down menu above the “Donate” button.  Other special projects will be added as needed. Q. If we want to help people get out of debt, why does Mountain Grove Chapel accept credit card donations? A. Used within parameters, debit and credit cards can be an efficient tool for payments and purchases. Many people utilize them in place of checks or cash throughout the month, and then pay off the balance in full. For those people, we offer the option of using a debit or credit card to give. We strongly discourage those who have ongoing credit card debt from exercising this option.
