How to Make Pledge Payments or Other Gifts

The Church does not specify how much an individual should give, but we hope each person will give what they can and increase that amount as they are able.

"We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give." - Winston Churchill

Payment Options

You can make your payments to GRCC in any of the following ways:


Credit or debit card
    (only through Tithe.ly - see Electronic Giving at the right)

 

Bank transfer
    (through Tithe.ly or directly from your bank account like you would for any automatic bill paying)

 

Cash or check

 

Appreciated stock/IRA Qualified Charitable Distribution

  Automatic Recurring Payments:

 

  You can set up your credit card, debit card or bank transfer payments to automatically process on a recurring basis (for example, monthly) to make sure your payments are made on a timely basis, especially when you are away.

 

  Please Note: If you made arrangement through your bank to have your  2021 pledge payments come automatically from your bank account, your  current commitment will continue into 2022 unless you contact your bank to change the amount for 2022.
