Giving

Because God has given to us, we give to the Church, the Community, and the World

One of the biggest struggles a Christian faces is developing a healthy relationship with possessions. Even good things can overtake our relationship with Jesus Christ, becoming contrary to God’s intent. Material things are not bad things, until they take the place of God.

We believe in the faithful management of our material things so they bring glory to God. The Bible is filled with more than 2,350 references to money, giving, and our possessions.

What are the different ways I can give?

In person: Bring your offering to the worship service and place it in the plate that is passed during the offering. Or you may place it in an envelope and drop it in the black lock box located on the church office.

By mail: Send your check to Sycamore Presbyterian Church at 510 Coalfield Road, Midlothian, VA, 23114.

Online: Use our giving system to give from your bank account (called an ACH or eCheck payment), a debit card, or a credit card.

Are there fees to using the online options? If so, who pays them?

There is no fee to use the automatic draft option (called an ACH or eCheck payment), so we prefer you use that option if possible. There is a fee of ~2.5% to use the online credit or debit card function. This fee is taken out of the total amount you give and is not an additional fee to your giving.

What is an ACH payment?

An ACH payment is a “bank to bank” transfer, sometimes called an eCheck. You will need your bank’s routing number and your account number to establish an ACH payment.

Can I use a credit card or debit card?

Yes, you may either one, but we prefer you use the ACH payment (also known as eCheck) option, if you’re able, to avoid the 2.5% processing fee.

Can I set up recurring giving on a given date and time?

Yes, it is possible to that when you set up your online giving.

Are giving reports available?

Yes, you can download and print your own statements with the online giving option.

Who is liable for card information and cleaning up the mess if a cyber-theft takes place?

Our staff will work with our service provider to resolve the issue.

What happens if there are insufficient funds in a payment?

The bank will notify our staff, who will in turn, notify you.

Is my account information safe?

Yes. As with every bill pay or online giving, there is protection software in place to protect you.

Can I designate giving to specific funds?

Yes. You may choose to give to various specific funds beyong the General Fund, including Missions, the Building Fund, or Deacon Fund.

Should I still give using my Credit Card if I'm not sure I can pay my bills?

NO! Our leadership does not wish you take on credit card debt in order to give. If you are taking on debt by giving an amount that you cannot pay off each month, DO NOT give by credit card.

If you need financial counseling or help in any way, we have several training resources that we use to help you learn to honor God with your finances. Our deacons would be glad to assist you with this. Just press the green button at the bottom-right of the screen and let us know how we can help.
