Giving FAQs

Our "General" fund touches every area and ministry of our church. If there is a greater need in one area, say an emergency need for one of our Missionaries, our General Fund allows us to easily transfer money to support the cause. If you're unsure where to give, start here!

You can also give to a number of other ministries and funds, such as:

  • Missions
    Our missions fund allows us to extend the reach of the Gospel by supporting missionaries in different parts of the world. Each month we focus on two different types of missions projects, a Mission Commitment or our core long-term missionaries we support each year, as well as a Missions Visionary Project where we support a new cause, visiting missionary, urgent need, and more. You can find out more about our missions projects on our Missions page or by contacting the church office.
  • Property Maintenance
    Giving to our Property Maintenance fund helps us keep our church campus in the best shape to serve our community. Each month over 150 different events and programs occur in our building, including our normal Sunday Morning Services, Sunday Schools, and Wednesday evening services, but also including a number of community programs like Scouts, AA meetings, Weddings, Election Voting, Funerals, and more.
  • Roof Fund
    The Roof fund is an extension of the Property Maintenance fund that is specifically dedicated to the repair and maintenance of our church building's roof.
  • Assistance Fund
    The Assistance Fund allows us as a community of believers to support the needs of members within our congregation.
  • Light The Way
    Our Light The Way Radio ministry allows us to broadcast our teaching messages over the air on 11 different radio stations and extend the reach of the Gospel. By setting up a recurring $20 per month gift, you'll become one of our "Light Partners" and recieve a Free copy of Pastor Collin's book, "Meet Jesus."
  • Boyertown Multi-Service (October Focus)
    Boyertown Area Multi-Service is a social service agency dedicated to meeting needs and improving the lives of people in the Boyertown School District Area and surrounding communities of Amity, District, Hereford, Pike and Oley townships.
  • American Bible Society (November Focus)
    The American Bible Society is a United States–based nondenominational Bible society which publishes, distributes and translates the Bible and provides study aids and other tools to help people engage with the Bible.
Yes, you can specify an automated giving frequency from weekly, monthly, bi-monthly, and every other week. You can easily change or cancel a recurring donation at any time. If you have questions, the church office can help!
Absolutely! Just choose the option "One-Time" in the Frequency selection box.
Absolutely not! There are no fees to you of any kind for giving online. The amount that you enter for each gift will be the amount that is reported on your giving record. The church does incur small fees to receive donations, and you have the ability to cover the cost of that fee if you would like to.
Yes, you can use either! Any card-based donations have the same processing fee charged to the church. The lowest cost option is to do an electronic check (also called an ACH), where you donate using your routing and checking number instead of a card number.

Yes, you can setup online giving to deduct directly from your bank account, and you can unlink your account at any time! You simply need your routing number and checking account number.

This is the preferred giving method, as it has the lowest transaction fees that the church covers. Please note that it does take up to 3 days for our giving service to verify access to your account before your initial gift is received.

Unfortunately we cannot list every ministry or cause that we support on our Online Giving Portal page. If you wish to designate a donation to a specific ministry or cause, please contact the Church Office at 610-754-6446 and we will work with you directly to ensure your gift is delivered to the right fund.

Check with your financial provider for exact transfer times, but donations begin processing on the day specified, with card-based transactions completing transfer in 1-2 days, and echeck/ACH transactions completing in about a week. This extended time is due to modern anti-fraud checks.
