 2 Corinthians 8:3-5

For I testify that according to their ability, and beyond their ability, they gave of their own accord, begging us with much urging for the favor of participation in the support of the saints, and this, not as we had expected, but they first gave themselves to the Lord and to us by the will of God.
 

Proverbs 3:9

Honor the LORD from your wealth and from the first of all your produce…
 

1 Corinthians 16:1-2

Now concerning the collection for the saints: as I directed the churches of Galatia, so you also are to do. On the first day of every week, each of you is to put something aside and store it up as he may prosper so that there will be no collecting when I come.
 

Psalm 24:1

The earth is the Lord’s, and all it contains, the world, and those who dwell in it.

Why give online?

You are faithfully honoring God

When you give online, you are deciding to give God your “first fruits.” If you get paid on Thursday, you do not have to wait till Sunday to participate in this act of worship. The Bible teaches that we are to honor God with the “first fruits” of our labor (Proverbs 3:9). Even by setting up a recurring, monthly contribution that is scheduled to come out of your account on the day you specify, you can ensure that your first fruits are faithfully given back to God (1 Corinthians 16:1-2).

It is simple

By tithing/giving online, it is automatically posted on your account, and you should receive a receipt via email. You won’t have to remember whether you gave this month or forget to give while on vacation. Even if you are on the other side of the world, you are still able to give as a faithful, active member of Tom’s Creek.

It is secure

PayPal is a secure way to give, and your donation is automatically posted to Tom’s Creek’s account. Your information that you fill in is protected and not accessible to the public.

It is transparent

You have the ability to quickly see your online giving history by logging onto your PayPal account at www.paypal.com. You do not have to wait for a bank statement or request a giving report from the church.
