Giving is a response of trust to God's faithfulness, provision, and promises.
Should I tithe off my gross earnings or the net amount of my paycheck?
Scripture doesn't use the literal terms "net" or "gross." In the Old Testament they tithed from the "gross" of their produce. It's our belief we should tithe from our gross, including the gross of our company if we're a business owner, but what's most important to note is that the spirit in which we give is of greatest value to God. He tells us in 2 Corinthians 9 that "each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give; not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver."
Can I try this by giving one time?
Sure. Select "One Time" in the frequency drop-down box.
What is a contribution schedule?
This is similar to a subscription. You can choose how often you would like an automatic donation to be made -weekly, every two weeks, or monthly.
Which giving option is best?
The short answer: whatever works best for you! You may be interested to know that using your bank’s scheduled bill pay or our e-check option means that the maximum amount of your gift gets to Faith Chapel, while the credit card option requires us to pay a small percentage fee for each gift. Either way, we appreciate your giving, so choose the one that is right for you.

If we want to encourage people to stay out of debt, why does Faith Chapel accept credit card donations?
Used with care debit and credit cards can be an efficient tool for payments and purchases. Many people utilize them in place of checks or cash throughout the month, and then pay off the balance in full. For these people, we offer the option of using a debit or credit card to give. We strongly discourage those who have ongoing credit card debt from exercising this option. Proverbs 22:7 says "...the borrower is servant to the lender" and credit cards can cause many people to struggle financially, so please give wisely and in response to God's caution about incurring debt.
Is it secure?
All debit or credit card information you enter and store for online giving is secured. No one has access to your data unless authorized by you.
Can I get a refund?
