E-Giving Access

Giving draws us closer to God.

When you invest in what matters to God, you strengthen your relationship with Him.

Giving grows our character.

Giving helps us to better reflect the character of God. He has given us everything — not even withholding his own Son! God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son.

Giving expresses love for people.

Our giving makes it possible for people to hear the Good News of God’s love for them. It also helps us provide, through our Ministry partners, critical care to the poor and those in need.

Electronic Giving

Enjoy the Convenience of Electronic Giving

St. Philip offers Electronic Giving, E-Giving, as a way to automate your regular weekly offering. Electronic giving offers convenience for individual congregation members and provides much-needed donation consistency for our congregation.

  • Direct Debit Giving is used to automatically transfer funds from your checking or savings account to the church’s bank account.
  • Credit & Debit Card Giving allows you to make offerings automatically on a pre-determined schedule using a credit or debit card.

E-Giving allows you to go to at any time to set up an automatic donation plan, change your donation plan, make a one-time donation or view your online donation history. As you contemplate future contributions, please consider electronic giving. Begin by clicking our Online Giving Button Bellow.
