Grace Church of Rootstown Online Giving Policy
Scripture teaches that the management of God’s assets, which He has entrusted to us, is a key aspect of the Christian’s spiritual life. Our gifts and offerings to Him are truly acts of worship, and this typically occurs as part of our Sunday morning corporate gathering.
However, Grace Church does make secure online giving available via:
- Checking & Savings (ACH) direct bank account withdrawals (lower transaction fee charged to GCR: $.25 per ACH transation)
- Debit Card/Credit Card (higher transaction fee charged to GCR: 2.3% + $0.30 per transaction for all credit & debit card donations)
Statement on Credit Card Use
While we permit the use of credit cards for the giving of tithes and offerings, the Elders would strongly encourage the use of electronic funds transfer rather than credit card for two (2) reasons: (1) some persons do not pay off their credit cards each month and we certainly do not want to in any way be a party to someone going into debt and paying interest on monies given to Grace Church; and (2) when using a credit card, some of your gift will go to the credit card company rather than to the Lord.
We have also been assured that your payment and personal information is always kept safe. This information will remain private and will never be given away to third parties by Grace Church, other than to process your scheduled contributions.
We do not handle your financial information, rather we direct you to a third party site to handle financial transactions via Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which is the industry standard, and is, we believe, among the best software available today for secure commerce transactions. It encrypts all of your personal information, including credit card number, name, and address, so that it cannot be read over the internet.
There are no refunds or cancellations made.
You can schedule new contributions at any time and can modify or cancel those contributions at any time prior to the date they are scheduled. Once the contribution has been processed, however, it cannot be canceled. If you have any problems or questions related to this, please contact us here or at the Grace Church Office 4808 Tallmadge Road, Rootstown, Ohio 44272. Phone- 330-325-7174.
