GIVING TO MARINERS CHURCH
As we continue on the Road to Independence as a church, we will be transitioning to a new giving database. Effective Jan 1, 2018 our giving will be processed through Planning Center. We will completely transition off of Ministry Platform in the first quarter of 2018.
TRANSITIONING RECURRING GIFTS
If you found your way to the new giving system (Planning Center) and scheduled a recurring gift, thank you! Your scheduled gifts in the old system (Ministry Platform) will be stopped automatically.
If you received a phone call from the accounting department at Mariners Church, we shut off any scheduled gifts on the old system (Ministry Platform) for you when we helped you make the transition.
If you’ve been around Mariners for any length of time you know that giving is just something we do. It’s part of our DNA because we understand the important role it plays in moving the ministry forward. Giving happens in person at our weekend services, but in this day and age it is often done online.
Here are just a few of the benefits of Online Giving:
KEEP FIRST THINGS FIRST
The Bible says giving is to be a “first” and not a last or leftover matter in our lives (Proverbs 3:9-10). It’s too easy to let our intentions be compromised by the pressure of expenses and billing cycles.
Through online giving, you expedite your gift, simplify our accounting and strengthen our base of regular support.
IT’S SECURE & PRIVATE
Our new giving platform (Planning Center) uses email authentication that does not require a password. It's different, but it is definitely secure! Thousands of churches use Planning Center to accept donations and it has a proven record for safety and security.
The online giving registration form requires contact information like name, e-mail address and some demographic information. Mariners Church will not sell or rent your personal information to third parties. This information is stored in your file in a secure environment separate from our website.
Please note we are charged a fee for the use of credit cards, when possible please use the Bank Account (ACH) option.
Your 2017 annual giving statement will be sent in the mail or emailed to you according to the preferences you set in our old system (Ministry Platform). For questions please contact Jennie Bruce firstname.lastname@example.org 949.769.8216
