God is doing amazing things at Wells Branch Community Church and we want you to be a part of it. Partner with us by making a financial investment in order to help us more effectively reach the people of Wells Branch with the life changing reality of Jesus Christ. Our philosophy follows that of the apostle Paul who writes, “Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”
Chris Plekenpol explains why and how you can make an investment in spreading life change
by being a regular percentage giver.
What is a percentage giver?
Our desire is for believers to be percentage givers. This means you give a set percentage of your income to support the mission of the church regularly. We believe that we honor God by giving back to his kingdom purposes first. If you have not given before, or are not sure you can afford to give, start with a small percentage of your income and then make it a goal to increase your percentage every year.
How should I give?
We offer 2 ways to give online. We recommend you give by eCheck or ACH. This is an electronic transfer from you bank account. This method has the lowest processing cost, so you can make sure that more of your investment goes toward kingdom purposes. We also offer giving by debit or credit card. We discourage people from giving by credit card because we believe we should give to God out of what we have earned, and live within our means without going into debt.
What does my money go toward?
All of your giving goes towards the General Fund. The General Fund is divided up into budget categories including but not limited to: missions, church planting, ministries, administrative costs, and facility costs. Every year at Thanksgiving we take up a yearly offering for our benevolence ministry. This is giving over and above our regular giving on one day to help people in need in the Wells Branch Community. This past year we raised over $30,000 to help people through difficult financial situations in 2014.
