Three Simple Steps

2. Provide bank or credit card information.
3. Indicate the amount, frequency (one-time or recurring) and fund designation for your gift.
There are several benefits to online giving for both you and The Orchard.
• 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.
Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What types of bank accounts can I give from?
A: You can give online from your checking account, MasterCard, Visa, or Discover.

Q: When will contributions be taken from my account?
