God's people have always been characterized by giving, but the way they've given has changed over time. For example, people no longer bring goats, sheep, calves and grain to God as they did in the Old Testament. Giving is simpler and theologically sounder since Jesus has made the ultimate sacrifice. In view of multiple methods of business transaction, we at Tower of Refuge extend these options in the business of giving to the work of the Lord. You are welcome to give your tithes and offerings during our service times, as we've traditionally done, or you can give online via the routes mentioned on our website.
Anyone who would like to give to Tower of Refuge online is welcome to do so through our church website. The system makes it easy to quickly transfer money from a bank account or debit card to the church safely and securely. One-time gifts and recurring withdrawals can both be set up, and gifts can be given either to the church's general fund or a specific church project.
At the Tower of Refuge, we'll continue to take an offering during the service for people who prefer to give by cash or check. For members who'd rather transfer money electronically, though, giving through the church website is an option.
Giving is an important aspect of the Christian life. After all, Luke records that Jesus himself said, "It is more blessed to give than to receive" (Acts 20:35). At Tower of Refuge, we want to encourage all members to pray about giving and give as God leads them. For those who prefer an online way to give, the church website now offers one. Feel free to set up an account and make an offering, or contact the church for help with giving through the site.
