God's people have always been characterized by giving, but the way they've given has changed over time. Giving money is simpler, cleaner and theologically sounder since Jesus has made the ultimate sacrifice. As the way that money is exchanged changes, we at Fairlane are extending members a new way to offer their financial gifts.
We'll continue to take an offering during the service for people who prefer to give by cash or check. For members who'd rather transfer money electronically, though, giving through the church website or mobile app is an option. Anyone who would like to give to Fairlane online is welcome to do so. The system makes it easy to quickly transfer money from a bank account or debit card to the church safely and securely. One-time gifts and recurring withdrawals can both be set up as well.
Giving is an important aspect of the Christian life. After all, Luke records that Jesus himself said, "It is more blessed to give than to receive" (Acts 20:35). We want to encourage all members to pray about giving and give as God leads them.
