To give to Bethel online, sign up or sign in to BethelConnect. BethelConnect offers many features like a complete giving history of both online and offline gifts, access to giving statements for tax purposes, as well as the ability to manage your own contact information and small group involvement.
According to the Bible everything belongs to God. That means that we are not owners. We are stewards. He entrusts His resources to us to use for His purposes.
Maximizing Your Gift
There are several ways to give to Bethel. In order to maximize your gift, we recommend you use the offering boxes or your bank’s bill-pay service. Those options have the lowest overhead cost so when you use one of those options, your gift is maximized. We realize not everyone has a bill-pay service, so we also offer online giving. Giving statements are mailed out in January.
- Offering Boxes
At each service there are offering boxes near the entrances to the main meeting room. You can place cash or checks in these boxes. Gifts through checks and cash in envelopes marked with your name and address will be recorded for tax purposes.
- Bank Bill-pay
Many financial institutions offer a bill-paying service. While your gift to Bethel is not a bill, you can use the bill-paying service which will send a physical check to Bethel through the mail. Please note the city name of the campus you attend in the memo field. Contact your financial institution for more information about these services.
- Online Giving through BethelConnect
You can give to Bethel via an electronic check or a debit/credit card. Bethel elders discourage giving through debt. To give online, please sign up for or log in to your BethelConnect account (what is BethelConnect?).
Note: If you’ve previously given to Bethel online (through ServiceU), we encourage you to create a new account through Bethel Connect. Bethel Connect offers additional features, like access to giving statements, giving history, as well as the ability to manage your own contact information and small group involvement. We will continue to accept gifts via ServiceU through May 31, 2014.
