Benefits of Online Giving

You can prioritize giving in your budget. In the Bible, in Proverbs 3: 9-10, indicates giving is to be a priority and not an afterthought in my life. It is too easy in our culture to let our standards and intentions be compromised by the urgency of expenses and pressure of bills.

You can increase your faithfulness. Have you ever forgotten your gift, left your checkbook at home or promised yourself you would get caught up in the future? Have you had times where you have fallen behind because travel or emergencies kept you from church? Online giving provides a way to be faithful and consistent.

You can help your church. Through online giving, you expedite your gift, simplify our accounting, reduce our labor to process gifts, and more importantly it will help to strengthen our base of regular support.

You can encourage faith and faithfulness in the lives of fellow believers. As you plan and prioritize your giving, you will lead the way for others to grow and mature in their financial management. Being a forerunner in this new area of planned giving, you can provide a personal testimony and example for others to follow.

Online Giving FAQ

  • Is my online giving secure?
    Yes. Every transaction is encrypted with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), the same industry-standard encryption trusted for online commerce with world-class financial organizations.
  • Can I give as little or as much as I want?
    Online gifts must be a minimum amount of $5.00 with no limitations on the maximum amount.
  • Why do I need an online account?
    Using a church online account allows you to view a history of your giving, set up recurring payments, pay for events, manage your profile and financial information, find a Small Group, and more. Parishioners can use their online account to view the church directory, email and text their Small Group, and access the church mobile app.

    If you are a regular attender or member you probably already have an account. Your username is your full email address. (Click 'Forgot Your Password' to have a new password emailed to you.) If you don't yet have an account, please email the church office.
  • What if I forget my password?
    From the login screen you can click on 'Forgot your Password' and a new temporary password will be emailed to you. It is recommended that you change your password to something you will remember.
  • Which Fund should I select?
    Our current year's General Fund pays for ongoing operating expenses needed to provide our ministry services, including salaries, utilities, technology, curriculum and worship supplies, etc.
    Our Building Fund pays for the capital expenses of Heritage UMC, including our monthly mortgage for our worship center, and purchase or significant repair of major facilities items.
    Our Permanent Endowment Fund (PEF) creates long-term support of our church. Principal is never spent and only earnings will be used to support ministry.
  • Can I stop recurring payments?
    Yes. You can stop recurring payments anytime through your online account.
  • Which payment form should I use?
    We encourage using E-checks (debit from your bank account) since there are minimal processing fee paid by the church for contributions made via E-checks, which means more of your gift goes to the church. This is particularly important if you are making large or recurring contributions. The church is charged a 2.65% fee for each VISA or MasterCard transaction (debit or credit) made thru Online Giving or Text to Give.
  • Where does my money go?
    Your generosity enables us to bring God's light and love into the world. Each week Heritage UMC is involved in teaching children, discipling teens, reaching people with the Gospel, and supporting our ministry partners (local, regional, and worldwide). Your generosity is making a difference not only in metro Denver but around the world!
