There are many ways you can give to Tenth. The list of ways to give to Tenth provided below is not comprehensive, but it represents the most significant ways you can participate in giving. To learn more, please contact us or speak to your personal financial advisor. We are grateful for your continued support, both financially and in prayer. Tenth encourages members of other churches who are visiting this page to make a full commitment to their own churches before giving to Tenth.
You can make one-time or recurring payments using ACH or your debit card to the Church Ministry Budget, the Global Outreach Budget, the Building Fund, and the Capital Campaign.
- Due to the processing costs of over 2.3% associated with using a debit card, the Session prefers use of on-line electronic check (ACH) instead of debit cards, since the fees for ACH are considerably lower.
- The Session requests that credit cards not be used, since they do not want debt to be incurred as a result of giving.
Contact your bank to set up automated one-time or recurring gifts toTenth Church (like automated bill payments). Electronically generated checks will be sent by the bank directly to Tenth Church—use the address above. You will need to set up designations to the Church Ministry Budget, the Global Outreach Budget, the Building Fund, and the Capital Campaign with your bank.
You may write a check or place cash inside an offering envelope and put the envelope in the offering each week. Write your designation to Church Ministry, Outreach, Building Fund, or Other (you must specify the latter) on the envelope or the check memo line.
