Giving

Why we give.

God is generous and so he calls us to be as well.  What we do with what God has given us shows the world where our hearts are at and helps proclaim the gospel. We want to glorify God with every area of our lives, and that includes what we do with our finances.

Ways To Give

Give Online

You can give right now by using the form to the right. It is quick, convenient, and secure!

Mail A Check

If you prefer to give by check, you can!
 
Make your check out to:
“Vineyard Gilbert”

and mail it to:
Vineyard Gilbert
601 S. Cooper Rd.
Gilbert, AZ  85233

*If you would like us to send you some pre-addressed and postage paid envelops, please let us know by emailing office@vineyardgilbert.com or call us at (480) 892-5828

Bill Pay

Another way you can automate your giving is through your bank’s bill pay. Just go to the bill pay page of your bank’s website and add Vineyard Gilbert as a new payee. You’ll need our address and phone number which you can access here. Once the church has been added as a payee, you can set up a one-time gift or a recurring donation from your bank account. One advantage to bill pay is that your entire donation goes to the church and no bank fees are collected.

Text to Give

You can also easily give by texting the word “Give” or a dollar amount ($ symbol followed by an amount) to (480) 210-7377

*The first time that you give this way, there is a brief account setup. Once you do that, giving is as easy as texting a dollar amount. You will receive a confirmation text, as well as an email to whatever email is associated with your account.
There are several benefits to online giving for both you and our church. Here are a few . . .
 
Faithfully Honoring God
When you sign up to give online you are deciding in advance to faithfully give. God always blesses that kind of faith! The Bible teaches that we are to honor God with the “First Fruits” of our labor (Proverbs 3:9). By setting up a recurring contribution that is scheduled to come out of your account on the day you specify, you can ensure that your First Fruits are faithfully given back to God.
 
Simplicity
You won’t have to remember whether you gave this month or send in an offering by mail when you’re on a trip.
 
Security
We utilize an encrypted secure website for your online records. Online giving is more secure than giving with a check or cash because an electronic gift can’t be lost or stolen.
 
Focus
Instead of having to worry about writing a check and filling out an envelope during the service, you can be fully focused on the worship service, knowing that you have already given your offering.
 
Helping The Vineyard
Online giving is more cost effective for our church to process, and it makes our record keeping much easier.
 
A Note About Credit Cards
While we allow the use of credit cards for tithes and offerings, we still strongly encourage the use of electronic funds transfer rather than credit card for two primary reasons:
 
Although many pay off their credit cards each month, many also do not. We do not want to encourage someone to go into debt and pay interest on gifts given to the church.
 
With electronic transfers from your bank account (through your bank’s online bill pay), your entire gift goes to the church. When using a credit card, as much as 2.5% of your gift goes directly to the credit card company.
