Benevolence Fund

Our General Fund is Bethel’s primary source of income and is used to fund all ministries and administrative needs as stated in the budget. Gifts to Living Above and Beyond are used for capital improvements. Our current project is the main kitchen remodel. Click here to learn more about that. Gifts to the Benevolence Fund are used to help Bethel families in need.

Is my giving secure?
Yes. We use secure processing services that meet or exceed the highest government standards. We use encryption which “scrabbles” your personal information, so that third-parties cannot view or decode your information.

Is my sensitive information kept private?
Yes. Neither Bethel Church nor our online giving webhost Church Community Builder (CCB) will sell or rent your information to third parties. Your contact and demographic information are stored in a unique file in a secure environment separate from our website and its servers.

What forms of payment can I use?
You can use a checking account, debit card, or credit card.

When are gifts processed?
Gifts made with a credit or debit card are processed the next day. Gifts made from a checking account are processed within three to five business days.

Will I get a statement for tax purposes?
All givers with a current address in our database will be given an annual contribution statement. This includes giving made online, during worship services and by mail.

Can I view my giving history online?
Yes. Once your gift has been processed, you will be able to see a list of all your gifts and payments under the “My Profile” section.

Can I give my online gift to an outreach team or special project?
Yes. Please go to the Go Teams page and click the link to give to the trip you would like to support. Gifts can be made securely online via debit/credit card or via checking account.

Can I cancel or change my online giving?
Yes. You may cancel or make changes to your pending contributions at any time. Once your gift has been processed, you cannot make changes to it through your online giving account.

I still have other questions. What should I do?
