Benefits of Giving Online


There are several benefits to online giving for both you and the church:


First Fruits – In Proverbs 3:9 we are taught to honor the Lord with the “First Fruits” of our labor. By setting up a recurring contribution that is scheduled to come out of your account on the day you specify you can ensure that your First Fruits are given back to God.


Simplicity – You will not need to remember if you gave this month or send in your offering checks when you are out of town.


Security – Online giving is more secure than giving with a check in that an electronic gift can’t be lost or stolen.


No Distractions – Instead of needing to worry about writing your contribution check during the service, you can be fully engaged with the worship service, knowing that you have already given your offering.


Helping – It is more cost effective for the church to process online contributions. In addition, it also simplifies the financial records the church needs to keep.



Keeping your information and contribution secure is a top priority.


Online giving is a safe and easy way to support the ministries of Shepherd Church of the Nazarene. This system enables you to support the church by making a one-time contribution or establishing a recurring contribution.
