Other Ways To Give
Simply place your donation in the offering plate during Sunday morning worship services. If using a check you can write on the memo line to which fund you are giving. If you make a gift and do not designate which fund, we will apply it to the General Fund. We have numbered giving envelopes available that provide a convenient way to designate how you want your gift applied as well as allowing you to give cash and still receive the IRS deduction. Contact the Finance Office if you wish to have envelopes assigned to you.
Checks or money orders can be mailed to the church at:
Gracespring Bible Church/ Attn: Finance Office
8643 Gull Road
Richland, MI 49083
The church has numerous brokerage accounts that can accept a gift of stock. Contact the Finance Office for specific instructions.
Gracespring will accept large items donated that will be gifted to families in need. Examples are cars, major appliances and furniture. For these large items you will be given a letter acknowledging your gift that can be used for tax deduction purposes. Contact the Response Ministries for specific instructions.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is it safe to give online?
Yes. In many ways giving online is safer than writing a check because an electronic gift cannot be lost or stolen. The security of the system is continually managed by Fellowship One and Kindrid (Text Giving).
What types of bank accounts can I give from?
You can give online from your savings / checking account, MasterCard, Visa, or Discover. This is the same when paying via text too!
Are there any fees involved with giving online?
Not to you. You will not pay any fees with an online gift. In addition, online gifts are a more cost efficient way for the church to process donations. However, when using a credit card, there are transaction fees opposed to giving cash.
Can I use a debit card?
You can use a debit check card from Visa or MasterCard, but true debit cards are not accepted through the Fellowship One system due to the sensitivity of securely requesting a Personal Identification Number (PIN). ACH bank drafts can be used instead for true debits.
