Making a Difference
You can set up an account to help manage your recurring gifts, or you can quickly make a one-time gift.
Emmanuel utilizes Vanco, a preferred ELCA payment processor, for our online giving platform.
Payment methods accepted: ACH, debit, and credit (Mastercard, VISA, AMEX and Discover).
We praise God for your gifts that go directly towards supporting our ministries and God’s work in our community.
Love Grows Here
As we look to the future of our church community, we enter a new stage in our stewardship journey. This year’s theme is, appropriately, “Love Grows Here.” Now that we have fully owned our operating budget, our great commission to feed the hungry, shelter the poor and make more disciples of Jesus will be rooted in love – the all-encompassing love of God.
Our goal for the Emmanuel 2020 Commitment is to increase congregational giving by $2,500/week and to have every household make a commitment.
Other Ways to Give
Cash is still king (yes, even in this technology age!) but there are other ways you can support Emmanuel’s mission.
If you have appreciated stock in your portfolio but don’t want to pay capital gains, you can gift a portion of the stock to Emmanuel as a charitable donation.
Qualified Charitable Contributions
If you are at least 70-1/2 years old by December 31 and own a traditional (non-Roth) IRA, you can make a Qualified Charitable Contribution to Emmanuel to help you hit your Required Minimum Distribution each year.
