Our giving is shaped by four foundational convictions demonstrated in the lives of the 1st-century believers in Corinth and Macedonia (1 Cor. 16 and 2 Cor. 8).
Following their pattern, we believe we are called to give systematically, sacrificially, proportionately, and cheerfully.
Ways To Give
Give in person on Sundays or online and by text anytime.
Frequently Asked Questions

No, you can give as a “guest” but if you want to view/track your giving online or print end of year tax statements, you’ll want to create an account.
Yes. While we encourage you to treat your giving as a specific act of worship to God and not just the “push of a button”, automatic giving can a helpful tool you can use to help you give more consistently throughout the year.
Yes. Our online giving is provided by Planning Center Online partnered with Stripe. Planning Center Online is our church management software and serves as the portal to Stripe, which handles the payment processing and your banking information. Your banking information is kept private and is not seen or stored by anyone at Bethany.
Normally no. We go to great lengths to ensure that only 1 church official sees giving amounts paired with an envelope number, and a separate individual matches only the envelope number with a name. If you give online, our IT administrator may see giving amounts, but it is not something that is monitored by any means! We want your giving to be between you and God.
We’re only charged $0.25 for each ACH bank transaction no matter how big. Debit card transactions are 2.15% + $0.30 per transaction.
You can call the church office during regular business hours or send an email to email@example.com
If you give online you will receive an email from Planning Center with a summary of your giving from the previous year. If you give using our numbered envelope system, you will receive an end-of-year statement that includes all of your itemized gifts/tithes by the end of January each year.
