We consider giving as part of our spiritual lives at Stone Church, an act of worship. While we most associate giving with money, there are many ways to support the life of the church.
Give in Person
Passing the Plate
Give to Stone Church's ministries during worship. If you decide to give in other ways, please do not feel awkward about passing the plate without putting anything in it. If you want to put something in the plate, put an "I give online" note in the plate.
Give with credit card or Apple Pay in person*
Stop by during office hours to give to Stone Church with your credit card or use Apple Pay using the PayPal card reader in the office. Receipts are sent by email and your gift is directly deposited into the church's PayPal account.
Give to Stone Church with PayPal or your credit/debit card.* PayPal is a leader for secure online transmission of funds. Click on the "Donate" button and your money will be directly deposited in Stone Church's PayPal account. We provide quarterly reports of online giving, along with Sunday morning offerings. This is a convenient way to give to organizations you support, including Stone Church.
Give online through your bank
You can request that your bank send a check to Stone Church as a one-time offering or you can set up recurring payments to automatically give weekly or monthly. This is a great option for giving as your donation arrives even if you can't make it to worship for any reason. Please use the memo line to specify the funds to which you would like to give (ex. current, building, organ, etc.) and we will make sure to get your offering to the proper place. If you need help with getting this set up, please ask any member of the Finance Team for assistance. You will need to provide the bank with the church's address.
Give of Yourself
Your active participation with Stone Church's ministries is an essential part of being a community of faith. There are so many ways to be involved! Read about Stone Church's ministries and talk with the Gifts Discernment Team, Leadership Team and Stone staff to give of yourself.
* PayPal does charge Stone Church a transaction fee. For example, if you give $50, we receive $46.50 and PayPal takes $3.50. If you're giving through PayPal or with credit card (in person or online), consider making larger contributions with fewer transactions, to keep fees to a minimum.
We need you, you are the church.
