Ways to Give
Through Your Checking Account
Oakwood provides an easy way for you to continue in your giving. Online Giving allows you to create an electronic draft from your checking account. When we give our tithes and offerings to the work here at OBC, we are enabling the ministries to continue and to grow. One very convenient way that you can ensure that your gift to the Lord’s work is given quickly and consistently is through Online Giving. By filling out a simple web form, you enable the church to receive your tithes and offerings electronically from your bank account. Choosing the automatic giving option is especially helpful during the summer months when families travel out of town. Please consider using automatic Online Giving.
Through Your Credit Card or Debit Card
Please only use your credit card for Online Giving if you pay your balance off every month. Carrying a balance on a credit card subjects you to horrendous interest rates and fees that work against your financial health. If you are carrying a balance, please choose another method of payment. (*Note: Please adjust your giving amount to reflect the added transaction fee.)
(Credit/Debt Card Per Transaction rate: 2.5% + 30¢) (ex. $100.00 gift x 2.5% + $0.30 = $2.80 transaction fee, $100.00-$2.80 = $97.20 net gift)
Give in person
You may still give the “old fashioned way” by placing a check (envelopes available in the pew in front you) or cash in the offering plate when the is offering taken during the service or you may simply drop your gift in one of the two offering boxes located at the back of the worship center as you depart.
Give Before You Go
While many are traveling throughout the summer, it is especially important that we remain consistent and faithful in our giving.
To give before you go:
- Give online
- Give In Person (Giving Envelopes, Tithe and Offering boxes)
“Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. And thereby put me to the test, says the LORD of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you a blessing until there is no more need.”
– Malachi 3:10
