• 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.
