Beginning today, gifts to Elizabeth City Evangelical Methodist Church can be made through an easy and secure online portal via the church’s website at ecityemc.org/giving.php. Through a partnership with Church Community Builder (churchcommunitybuilder.com) and BluePay (bluepay.com) – leaders in church management software and technology-enabled payment processing – we are offering this service to make giving to the church easier and more convenient than ever before.
Why Online Giving?
Times are changing. Many people never carry a checkbook or write a check. Many others seldom ever carry cash. Today’s tech-savvy generation shops online and pays bills online, so giving online makes a lot of sense. It is faster, easier, and safer than writing checks, because electronic gifts are instant and cannot be lost or stolen. With the ability to set up recurring gifts, scheduled monthly giving is simple, and if you give through our secure login portal you can easily access your giving history with a single click.
Online Giving Options
We are offering two ways to give online:
- Recurring gifts – Those who attend EMC regularly have the option to log into our church management software, CCB. Once signed in, users can access the Giving portal from the menu on the lefthand side of the screen. By logging into CCB users have the ability to:
- Schedule gifts in advance
- Set up automatically recurring gifts
- Use their checking account as the giving source (instead of a credit or debit card)
- Access their complete giving history
- Download giving statements
Logging into CCB’s secure network environment also offers an additional layer of security to the electronic giving process.
- One-time gifts – Those who wish to give a one-time gift without the need to sign into CCB may give via the public giving portal, however they will not have access to the additional features available through signing in mentioned above.
Both options for giving online are safe and secure and allow you to designate how you want your gift/s to be applied.
If you have any questions about the online giving option, please contact EMC today and we will happily assist you.
