Make a Donation to Calvary Church
Calvary Church has online giving available to those who desire to use it. Calvary Church strongly teaches that living "debt free" is a worthy goal for all Christians. We offer online giving only as a convenience and not as a way to circumvent sound biblical money management principles or in any way to incur debt.
Users of online giving are responsible for setting up and controlling their online giving options themselves. You can designate where your giving goes (General Fund, Missions Fund, Restoration Project, etc.) and the frequency in which you give. You will be able to constantly track your online giving by logging in and viewing your history. You may give instantly by setting up an account, but to view your online contribution history, please allow one week for that information to be linked to your new account. Online records are updated weekly to reflect giving at church or through the mail.
Online giving is secure and tax deductible. Online giving allows you to set-up your giving using either a debit card or an automatic bank draft to your account. Credit cards are permitted but we ask that you consider the 3% added cost to the church.
You are free to give via the weekly offering in the worship service, by mailing your contribution in to the office, or online. We welcome you to give whatever God has called you to and however God has called you to.

Giving is a key element of spiritual formation and growth requiring two things of us:
Giving is an active expression of our faith. Giving demonstrates that God is our Provider and shows our confidence in His ability to supply our every need. Further, it’s an act of gratitude and dependence upon Him..
"'Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,' says the Lord Almighty, 'and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it.'" Malachi 3:10 (NIV)
As we listen to God's voice and earnestly seek His will for our lives, His plan for giving will become obvious to each of us. In response, we can eagerly give, knowing that it pleases Him. Through our gifts, we prove faithful in the stewardship of all God has provided us, while He blesses us beyond what we can possibly imagine.
Giving requires the highest standard of personal integrity and discipline. It is not a casual or when we happen to remember thing. In 2 Corinthian 8-9 the Bible teaches we are to give willingly, generously, and cheerfully. And our pattern should reflect a regular and systematic plan.
With these two principles in mind, we provide online giving as a simple way to prioritize and expedite your personal plan for giving.
It keeps first things first.
The Bible indicates giving is to be a "first" and not a last or leftover matter in our lives.
"Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops; then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine." Proverbs 3:9-10 (NIV)
It is easy to let our intentions be compromised by the pressure of expenses and billing cycles.
Have you ever forgotten your gift, left it at home or pledged to double it in the future? Have you had times where you have fallen behind because of travel or other schedule interruptions? Online giving provides a way to stay up to date with your budget.
Through online giving, you expedite your gift, simplify our accounting, and strengthen our base of regular support.
For your protection, we have taken a number of steps to maximize the security of financial transactions that are accepted on the Calvary Church website. Credit card and bank account processing is accomplished using secure processing services. Your entry of this information is encrypted when transmitted. Encryption is a process that scrambles information into a format that unauthorized parties can not decode or utilize. 128-bit encryption is the strongest, most secure form of encryption generally utilized in Internet browsers in North America.
The online giving registration form requires you to give us contact information (like your name and e-mail address), and demographic information. Calvary Church will not sell or rent your personal information to third parties. This information is stored in your file in a secure environment separate from our website.

What if I'm not a Calvary Church member, but I want to make a donation? How would I be able to get a statement for tax purposes?
We are happy to receive your gift, above and beyond your normal giving to your own home church. Online giving is a perfect way for you to give. All givers receive a contribution statement every January regardless of membership status, assuming we have all of their correct address information.
What if I want to cancel or change my online giving?
You may cancel or make changes to your pending contributions at any time. Once your contribution has processed, you cannot make any changes to it through your online giving account.
Will my online gifts be included on my annual Statement of Contributions?
Yes, they will be included.
Can I view my past giving history online?
Once your gift has been processed, you may view your giving history weekly after you have established your new account in our current system. Going forward, you will be able to view your giving history at any time.
How can I get a receipt of my online gift?
You will receive a contribution statement in the mail at the end of each year. Your online contributions will appear on these paper statements. You can also see your contribution history online during the year.
