How to MAXIMIZE your giving to OCC:
Respond to God, not us.
When you give to OCC, your gifts are to God whose mission OCC is carrying out.
God wants cheerful givers (2 Cor. 9:7b), who give to him intentionally, regularly (1 Cor. 16:2), and proportionally (Malachi 3:8-18).
Decide in your heart, and carry out that plan. “Each one must give as he has made up his mind…” 2 Corinthians 9:7a.
Automating your giving does a few things…
Saves checks, gas (running to the ATM), postage, and time.
Helps you follow through with what you have decided to give - by helping you not to forget.
Most people don’t like parting with their hard-earned money. Automated giving helps you pre-emptively win the emotional wrestling match that takes place in your heart each time you give.
Stabilizes the church’s budget, making the income more predictable – especially during the summer months.
Set up your automated giving through your online banking.
This really maximizes your gift because OCC pays some extra fees for receiving: Debit card, Credit card, and Text giving. On average, we only receive about 97% of gifts via cards. Setting it up through your online baking ensures we receive 100% of your gift.
