Ways to give

During this time when we are not gathering for in-person services, the church must continue to operate.  So, we ask that you continue to support the mission and ministry of the church with your financial giving in one of the following ways:

T E X T
Using the Text-to-Give service, all you have to do is text the amount you wish to contribute to our dedicated text phone number 336-489-GIVE (4483). The amount you wish to give goes in the body of the text message. The first time you do it will take you through a short set-up process where you will designate a credit or debit card to which the amount should be charged.
Just save the phone number in your Contacts, and the next time your contribution is as easy as sending a text message. It can be done during the Morning Prayer Service on each of the next Sundays, or anytime during the week that you happen to think of it.
