“Gifted to Give” Program
Electronic giving allows you to make donations on a scheduled, automatic basis and is a convenient, consistent way to help our church year round. Contributions can be made using a weekly, biweekly or monthly auto withdrawal from a savings, checking account or credit card, which is then automatically deposited into the church’s account. To set up electronic donations, simply follow this link (or use button below)- you can indicate how much you want to give to any, or multiple, funds. If it is your first time giving online, you can set up your profile at the same time.
Electronic Giving can also be used for one-time transactions to Emmaus general fund, Joyous Journey of Faith, Lutheran World Relief, Camp Lutherwood, ELCA Disaster and Hunger, FISH, Food for Lane County, Eugene Mission and Emmaus Foundation.
If you have questions, please contact Melinda in the church office by phone (541-344-1150) or email.
