Give

Why Give?

The strength of Mount Pleasant Community Church can be found in the generosity and commitment of the people who call it home.  Tithes and Offerings received by Community Church fund the vision and activities of our church. When you give, you effectively make a difference in the lives of people both locally and globally.

There are several ways you can give:

  Online through PushPay
  Cash or check during the worship service
  Text ‘mpccgive’ to 77977
  Mail a check to the church

Securely Give Online

You can give a single gift or setup recurring gifts. The first time you give, you will need to register.

Financial giving is also an act of faith and worship to Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 16:1-2 says Christians should give regularly and consistently in proportion to what we’ve been given. Giving financially to the church is a vital part of our spiritual growth and development.

Our annual giving has surpassed our budget projections for the past six years. 

We completed a renovation project in 2018 and were able to pay the entire cost without debt thanks to the generosity of our congregation.

Q. What is online giving?

Online giving is the ability to give a donation or schedule a series of donations using your debit card, credit card, or bank account via our servicer PushPay. You can Give Online from this webpage. 

Q. Are there any hidden charges or fees to give online?

Nope. You select the dollar amount for your gift. That is the dollar amount that will be recognized as your donation. No costs or fees.

Q. Can I use my debit card or credit card?

Yes. We accept any debit or credit card issued by Visa, Mastercard and Discover.

Q. Can I use an electronic check?

Yes, simply choose the “Bank Account” option on the payment page.

Q. Can I just try this by giving one time?

Sure. When you select the “Give” button, it will automatically take you to the online giving page where you can set up an account or make a one-time donation.

Q. How do I participate in the weekly offering if my contribution is automatically processed online?

You can still participate in the offering during the service by reflecting on the message of the song or media that is being presented.

Q. If we want to help people get out of debt, why does Community Church accept credit card donations?

Used within the parameters, debit and credit cards can be an efficient tool for payments and purchases. Many people utilize them in place of checks or cash throughout the month, and then pay off the balance in full. For these people, we offer the option of using a debit or credit card to give. We strongly discourage those who have ongoing credit card debt from exercising this option.

Q. How should I tithe if my income varies from pay period to pay period?

Depending on which is more feasible for your situation, you can handle tithing with a fluctuating income in a couple of different ways. Some people choose to give exactly one-tenth of their earnings for each individual pay-period. Others estimate their total earnings for the year and give a portion of the total tithe each week or month throughout the year.

Q. Should I tithe off my gross earnings or the net amount of my paycheck?

Scripture doesnt use the literal terms “net” or “gross.” It’s more important to note that the spirit in whichwe give is of greatest value to God. He tells us in 2 Corinthians 9:7 that “each man should give what he hasdecided in his heart to give; not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”
