Giving and Tithing
Money really matters to God. Jesus spoke about money and possessions more than any other topic. There is a spiritual connection between how you handle money and your relationship to God. The Bible illustrates countless examples of how we are to show our spiritual repentance and it is most commonly reflected in the way we manage our resources. Tithing is the only place that God says to test Him and find Him faithful.
Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. And thereby put me to the test, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you a blessing until there is no more need. – Malachi 3:10
Each Sunday we have a time where the offering bags are passed in service as an opportunity for you to give your tithe or special donation. If you are giving by check please make checks payable to “New Life Community Church.” Please indicate in the memo section of your check what type fund your offering is going toward. (Example: “Tithe,” “Missions,” etc.)
Giving online is made simple with our new, secured online tithe and offering software.
To enroll in automatic giving, download the automatic giving form, complete it and submit it with a personal check to the church office.
Our newest feature allows you to give from your smart phone via text message. Text any amount (Example: “$100.00 tithe”) to 920-280-6405. To get started:
- Enter the phone number 920-280-6405
- Enter “give” on the message line.
- If it is the first time a person is donating by text, they will be sent a message that says, “It looks like you are a new giver; to begin: (link provided). It will be a link to the church’s online giving page. Clicking on the link they will be asked to supply their payment method (credit card, debit card, or bank account). This payment source will then be linked with their phone number so that, in the future, all they will need to do is text in the amount. (They will not need to re-enter their payment information.)
- If a person has donated by text before, all they have to do is enter the amount in the message line and then will receive a text in response confirming that their gift has been received successfully and they are done.
Checks or money orders may be mailed to the church at the address below:

Our online giving platform is working on a way for the giver to pay the service fee, until that happens if you feel led to give the additional 1-2.9 % charge on top of your giving, it would be greatly appreciated.
The fees are as follows:
Credit/Debit Cards 2.9% + $0.30/transaction
Bank Transfer (ACH) 1% + $0.25/transaction
Less Common Fees
Failed ACH (bank transfer) gifts incur a $1 fee.
When a donor successfully disputes a transaction (e.g. credit card company or bank pulls back the funds), a $15 fee is incurred.
