There are several benefits to online giving for both you and the church:
- First Fruits – In Proverbs 3:9 we are taught to honor the Lord with the “First Fruits” of our labor. By setting up a recurring contribution that is scheduled to come out of your account on the day you specify you can ensure that your First Fruits are given back to God.
- Simplicity – You will not need to remember if you gave this month or send in your offering checks when you are out of town.
- Security – Online giving is more secure than giving with a check in that an electronic gift can’t be lost or stolen.
- No Distractions – Instead of needing to worry about writing your contribution check during the service, you can be fully engaged with the worship service, knowing that you have already given your offering.
- Helping EFC – It is more cost effective for the church to process online contributions. In addition, it also simplifies the financial records the church needs to keep.
For those who want to financially support EFC’s mission, we offer you the option of online giving.
You can also give by texting “efcgive” to 77977.
Or, you can give the old-fashioned way by mailing a check to EFC Newport.
70 Bliss Mine Road, Middletown, RI 02842
Also, through AmazonSmile, you can help raise money for EFC’s ministries just by shopping.
All you have to do is go to smile.amazon.com instead of the normal Amazon site, choose “Evangelical Friends Church of Newport” as your charitable organization, and start shopping. 0.5% of the price of eligible items will be donated to EFC.
We are grateful for your financial gift. God bless you!
