Holy Trinity provides ministries for members of the congregation and community that are possible only through the generous offerings provided to the church. Since it’s important to allow people to give in whatever way is most comfortable to them, Holy Trinity is exploring electronic giving through the use of credit and debit cards. We have partnered with Tithe.ly to use their platform on an experimental basis to determine if this meets our needs. Tithe.ly is an ELCA-endorsed electronic giving platform that makes it easy to make payments through a website or mobile device. You will find QR codes on tabletop signage, the All Good Gifts card, or the back of the newsletter directing you to our customized giving site http://www.engagedbygrace.org/offering which can also be typed into your web browser. If you choose to use Tithe.ly for your offering, it will be treated the same as any other offering you may provide, with one exception. As with any credit/debit transaction, there are associated fees. Tithe.ly allows the donor to cover those fees to enable Holy Trinity to receive the full value of your gift. We would also appreciate your feedback regarding the use of the platform and whether we should consider using it on a permanent basis.
About this blog
Welcome to my running online dialog on matters of our life together in faith community at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church—where the grace of Christ Jesus our Lord engages each of us and, in turn, sends us out to engage others with that grace as well. I look forward to learning and growing together.
