Giving


As followers of Jesus we believe that giving is an act of worship, and includes many inherent blessings. Giving of our resource acknowledges God as the owner of all things, including the resources he has entrusted to our care. As such we do not take casually the matter of giving. In fact, in Matthew 6:21 Jesus teaches that where your treasure is, there your heart will be also so giving is indeed more than a transaction, it is a reflection of a greater approach to life.

 

You can give your tithes and offerings securely online here, during any church service or mail it to the church.

 

If you choose to give online, here are some points of information and consideration:

 

:: You have several options in giving online. You can give using a credit card, debit card or using a checking account. You can choose to make a one-time gift or schedule gifts to repeat at a desired interval.

 

:: Giving online is easy and convenient. If this is your first time giving on-line, you will be asked to set up an account using an email address and a password you specify.

 

:: Using a credit card may sometimes be more convenient than cash, but also requires more discipline to pay off balances at the end of each month. Please do not go into debt in order to give. In determining the amount of your credit card gift, you may want to consider that the church pays a processing fee of 2% of the transaction amount on all credit card transactions.

 

:: East Gate is committed to privacy and security. Information you choose to provide will only be used to support your relationship with the church.

 

:: All gifts to East Gate are tax-deductible.

 

Thank you for your desire to give to the furtherance of the gospel of Jesus Christ. As a church, we believe that the method ordained of God for the support and spread of His cause is by giving of tithes and free-will offerings (Malachi 3:10; 2 Corinthians 9:7).
