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.
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?
