At Journey, we want to make it as easy as possible for you to be able to donate and begin fulfilling your created purpose. We offer four ways you can begin to respond to the heart of God through giving and also prevent your donation from getting lost in the busyness of the month.
Credit Card Donations
We recognize that a large number of us no longer carry cash and use credit cards as a way of paying monthly bills. Paypal is the easiest and most cost effective manner in which to make a donation to Journey.
Another easy way to manage money now is through the use of direct deposits. Intuit has proven to be a safe, reliable and most cost effective way to make a donation. This is a great way to “automate” your offering doesn’t get lost in the busyness of life.
The “Joy” Box
If you would prefer to bring a check or cash donation with you to the Gathering on Sunday, we have a “joy” box sitting on our information table that serves as our collection for those offerings.
Bill Pay through your Bank
You can also use the “bill pay” option like you may do for many of your other monthly obligations. Check with your bank for details.
Why We Give
Journey does not shy away from the fact that any organization needs money to operate.
That said – we also believe that the core motivation for why we give as a group is different than the reasons people may donate to any other organization.
Our motivation springs from the very heart of God…
God is love, so we love.
God is kind, so we show kindness.
God gives, so we are called to be generous.
Romans 8:32 describes a generous God who wants to graciously bless his children.
James 1:17 reminds us that every good and perfect gift comes from God.
John 3:16 teaches us that God gave his only son so that we might have eternal life.
Just how generous is God? He gave us His only son.
And when you give, you do more than meet the needs of your church.
You make a choice to take on the resemblance of the One who first breathed life into you.
When you give, you fulfill part of the divine purpose God has for your life—and the divine purpose God has for the world as a whole. You don’t just respond to a need – you do what you were created to do. You don’t just support something – you take a tangible step to fulfill your created purpose.
As you embark on the journey of giving – Journey commits to a style of ministry that is no-frills and focused on putting money into the community more than into a building!
