WHY WE GIVE
God calls us to be faithful in giving to His kingdom work through our tithes and offerings. We give sacrificially as an ACT OF WORSHIP and in gratitude for the many ways God blesses us. Our giving makes it possible for us to PARTNER TOGETHER to carry the love of Jesus Christ into our own community and around the world.
Ways to give
You can give by . . .
- Placing your gift in the offering plate during the worship services on Sunday.
- Mailing your gift to the church office. (Attn: EBC Financial Secretary, P.O. Box 280, Winston, GA 30187)
- Using online banking through your own bank. (Your bank will mail the check to the church.)
- Giving online by clicking the GIVE NOW button. You will be able to set up a one-time or recurring draft from your bank account or debit/credit card.* (The service we use for online giving adheres to the strictest standards of PCI compliance to ensure your security). The first time you register you will receive an email that will give you your online username and password.
GIVING FOR MISSION TRIPS: All donations for mission trips will be considered tax-deductible charitable contributions unless the donation is accompanied by instructions that it be considered non-charitable when it is given. Please note that IRS regulations do not allow the church to return or refund charitable contributions. Any monies given as charitable contributions for an individual which end up not being needed by that individual will be used to help other mission team members or other mission causes.
*Please note that we strongly discourage the use of a credit card unless you are in the habit of paying off your card at the end of the month. The Bible speaks in Proverbs 22:7 about the “borrower [being] servant to the lender.” The credit card option is offered simply as an additional method for giving and is not intended to encourage anyone to go into debt in order to give.
