One portal for Mobile or Computer access
We have chosen to use a web browser portal with Full vs. Mobile displays because we did not wish to deal with trying to support dozens of types of devices using apps. If you are using a mobile device, there is a “View Mobile Site” link which adjusts everything to a smaller screen size.
Are you in the Habit of Giving? Consider eGiving in 2020…
Starting with the First Sunday of February, 02/02/2020, Hope Lutheran will be officially accepting donations online using secure eGiving services.
In 2019, our denominational leadership at ELCA made an agreement to provide electronic donation services to thousands of ELCA congregations with NO monthly fees and a reduced transaction fee. Without this agreement, any online system would have been cost prohibitive to a church of our size.
If you are in the habit of giving regularly, or require a report of your total annual donations, please take a moment to set up an eGiving account. We encourage you to set up an account for increased control over your financial information and transactions and also to improve our ability to assist you.
How an eGiving Account works…
With eGiving you can set a regularly scheduled donation and place a printed card in your offering envelope on Sunday. If you are making a special offering or donation, you can do so online and fill out a card to place in the offering.
Your offering is transferred electronically and placed immediately in the church bank account. You are notified of each transaction via your preferences set in your online profile.
Please Create A Profile before you begin using eGiving so all of your transactions are automatically gathered to one eGiving account. This works like an electronic version of an envelope number which allows us to generate a giving report for you each year.
All eGiving transactions for your profile are combined with your envelope donations to generate one annual giving report.
Help is available if you would like to try eGIving
Brenda Braitling, a member of the Stewardship Team, has been designated by the Church Council to set up the system and assist with any technical questions or concerns anyone may have about Hope’s eGiving opportunity.
If you need assistance establishing an account, she can help you to set it up. She can verify your first transaction has properly processed and been recorded in your account. If you always sign on with your account, even for a one time transaction, it will automatically gather everything to your account and your giving report.
A schedule of informational sessions will be published in the Worship Bulletin.
A DIY step by step picture guide will be available in the church office after March 1, 2020.
