Giving at Grace
Giving and Stewardship
Giving is an act of worship. At Grace, we believe that God is the Giver of all that we have. We give back to Him as an act of worship with gratitude in our hearts. We give our time, talents, and treasure to be used by Him for His glory. When you give, you are not giving to a church, an organization, or the church staff; you are giving to God. He has blessed us to bless others. He only asks that we give back a portion of what He has entrusted to us.
It is through this commitment of giving that hearts can be reached, lives can be changed, and hope can be restored as we share the Good News of Jesus Christ at home and abroad.
The ministry of Grace Community Church is funded by God’s provision through the tithes and offerings of our faithful church members, partners, and attendees. We desire to honor God’s provision by exercising wise and faithful stewardship, ethical business practices, and full accountability so that the financial integrity of Grace remains beyond reproach. Grace Community Church is accredited by the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA). The ECFA accreditation Standards of Responsible Stewardship focus on board governance, financial transparency, integrity in fundraising, and proper use of charity resources. When an organization is accredited by ECFA, it demonstrates its willingness to follow the model of Biblical accountability.
Online Giving - This safe and flexible option is one of the easiest ways to give at Grace. This method allows you to schedule a recurring or one-time gift charged to your debit or credit card or drafted from your bank account.
Weekend Services - Place your check or cash in the offering or drop boxes during any of our weekend services. Please make checks payable to Grace Community Church. Offering envelopes are available throughout the lobby. If you are giving toward Vision for the Future or any other special offering, please clearly note the name of the special offering in the memo line of your check; otherwise, it may be applied to the general fund.

Is online giving secure?
We've taken steps to ensure that the giving process is safe and secure from beginning to end. All of your giving data is secured by SSL encryption. SSL is an acronym for "Secure Socket Layer," a security protocol that provides communications privacy over the Internet. It is the same technology used by banks and e-commerce companies such as Amazon.com to keep your information safe and secure during transactions.
