Ways To Give

There are multiple ways you can give, as outlined below:

  • Bring your contribution by the church in person or give during the offering time at one of our worship services: Please feel free to call ahead if it’s during the week to make sure someone is present.
  • Mail a standard check to the church office:  The address is 4300 Ooltewah Ringgold Rd – Ooltewah, TN 37363. Again, the check will be deposited on the Monday or Tuesday after it is received.
  • Do an e-check through your online banking bill pay system: Same mailing address as above. Only difference is that these checks take approximately 7 days to be received. Once received, it will be deposited the Monday or Tuesday after receipt. NOTE: There is no fee for this, for you or the church.
  • Give online: Go to CLICK HERE. Click the link, follow the prompts, etc. If you have any questions, call or text Sean. NOTE: There are fees for this. See below for details.

Just a few other notes people often ask about:

  • If you give online via credit/debit, there is a 2.75% fee that the church pays. You are able to absorb this fee on the website.
  • If you give online via ACH, the fee is only 1%. The church does absorb this fee, but you can also choose to increase your donation if you would like to absorb it.
  • If you give by text, the fee is 2.75% also, but there is no way for you to absorb it unless you manually increase your donation.

As always, we thank you for your faithfulness, and if there are any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to reach out to the church office at 423-396-2177.
