Choose ‘ONLINE GIVING’ from the right menu.


Make sure the campus is set to "Shades." Enter the designation you wish to give toward (budget or missions) and the amount you wish to give. Next choose "one time gift" or the "recurring gift" pattern. If you choose recurring, enter your selections, including an end date. Specific options will be available if you click recurring "Weekly" or "Monthly." For Make Jesus Known, please use a date in the current calendar year as your end date since this is an annual fund. Click "Next" to move to step two of the giving process. This step will show you a transaction summary of your gift.


At this point, you may choose "Add Another Donation" to give to another designation or choose "Complete" to continue.

Verify that your contact information is correct and scroll to the bottom of the page to enter your payment information. You may choose to pay by credit card or ACH (online check). We accept VISA, Mastercard, and Discover. If you choose ACH you will need your account number and routing number.


When you click “Check out," you should see a screen with your information summarized and “Transaction Complete” at the top. You will be able to see your past giving record and planned gifts by clicking on ‘My Giving’ on the right menu.
