MAY I CHOOSE WHERE MY GIVING GOES?
Yes. God is blessing New Hope Church with many exciting ministries! In order to enable these ministries to continue to thrive, there are multiple ways in which you may direct your giving:
Our General Fund supports many of the ministries of the church including:
Preaching and Teaching
Children’s Ministries (Sunday School and Amplify)
Youth Ministry (Magnify and Electrify)
Missions and Ministry Partners
Design and Decorating
Church staffing and facilities
Our Building Fund helps us prepare to minister to people who aren’t yet at New Hope Church. As the church continues to “Help People Find and Follow Jesus”, we need to prepare our campus and facilities for our growing body.
Our Agape Fund is an important fund used to minister to people of our community and within our church body who are facing emergency or crisis situations. Distributions from this fund are made by the Elder Board and follows the principle of Matthew 6:3-4 “But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.”
DO I PAY ANY ADDITIONAL FEES WHEN I PAY ONLINE?
No, there is no additional fees paid by online givers. However, there is a service charge paid by New Hope Church for giving received via credit card transactions. The amount of this fee is approximately $3 for every $100 given.
MAY I SET UP RECURRING PAYMENTS?
Absolutely, through the “Give” options on our Elexio app and online through our website you will find the options to setup weekly, biweekly, or monthly recurring donations.
IS MY CREDIT CARD AND BANK INFORMATION SAFE?
Yes, online giving utilizes a 256 Bit SSL encrypted connection that encrypts all financial information sent to our servers and to the payment gateway. This information remains private and will never be given to third parties, other than to process your scheduled contributions. Donations made online or on the app are processed by Elexio Giving. No credit or bank account information is stored on the New Hope Church’s systems. Elexio Giving is a Level 1 PCI Compliant Service Provider. Elexio Giving also meets the rigorous requirements of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI-DDS). This means it holds the highest standards of security set forth by the Card Brands. Any organization that stores, processes, or transmits payment cardholder data must meet these security standards to ensure the security of donors’ sensitive payment information.
