“But just as you excel in everything–in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in your love for us–see that you also excel in this grace of giving.” 2 Corinthians 8:7 (NIV)
Your 2016 contribution statement is now available online! Follow these easy instructions to access your statement:
Log into your account. If you have ever registered for a class, event or camp, you already have an account. If you have never set up an account, follow the easy “Sign Up” instructions, it may take 24-48 hours for your new account to be finalized and added to our system. THIS DOES NOT OBLIGATE YOU TO MAKE ONLINE CONTRIBUTIONS.
If you have any issues or questions concerning your statement, please contact the finance office at 432.694.5100, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Only with your authorization. No one can deduct money from your account automatically unless you specifically authorize it.
No. An electronic contribution is safer than writing a check, and it can’t be lost, stolen or destroyed in the mail. All Electronic Fund Transfer (EFT) transactions are governed by strict national rules and guidelines. More than four billion EFT transactions are processed annually in the United States.
On the signup screens, you can specify whether you want your contribution made one time, weekly, semi-monthly, monthly or as designated. If the date you have selected falls on a weekend or holiday, the transaction will occur on the next banking day.
Yes. You may test online giving by selecting One Time in the frequency drop down box in Step 3 of the signup process.
Your bank statement will include an itemized list of automatic gifts given from your account. We will continue to provide you with a personal giving statement for your tax records, and you can always access your giving records on stonegatefellowship.com.
We chose to take the time to set up online giving through electronic funds transfer rather than credit card for two primary reasons:
* With electronic transfer, your entire gift goes to the church. When using a credit card, as much as 3% of your gift would go to the credit company.
* Although many pay off their credit cards each month, many also do not. We do not want to put someone in the place of potentially going in debt, and paying credit interest on gifts given to the church.
Yes. You will have that option on step three of the signup process.
You can change your giving choices at any time.
No. Electronic funds transfers carry no bank fees.
You can give your tithe, missions, and building offerings online.
Contact the Finance Department (Tina Parker or Brittaney Rogers) at 432.694.5100, and they will be glad to address your questions and concerns.
