We give in response to all God has done for us. Gloria Dei is financially dependent on God's provisions. These provisions primarily come through the generous and faithful gifts of the people who care about the ministry of Gloria Dei.
There are two ways you can give online with an Electronic Fund Transfer (EFT):
· Bank Account through the Automated Clearing House (ACH) or
· Debit/Credit Card
With the convenience of EFT, you can make gifts to Gloria Dei through pre-authorized withdrawals from your bank account. You determine the designation, the amount and frequency of your gift. Recurring or one-time gifts by debit/credit cards can also be made here as well. All online transactions incur about a 4% fee that is paid by the church but you now have the option to cover those fees so the church can receive your full original donation.
Gloria Dei Lutheran Church is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and unless otherwise specified, donations to Gloria Dei are tax-deductible charitable contributions.
