You now have the opportunity to contribute to God’s work by making financial donations online. We understand this isn’t for everyone. While we do not encourage the use of credit cards and incurring debt, we realize that many in today’s society are becoming more reliant on “plastic” and paying their bills electronically. We have decided to make this available to you because it will serve so many.

We offer online giving only as a convenience and not as a way to circumvent sound Biblical money management principles or in any way to incur debt. Users of online giving are responsible for setting up and controlling their online giving options. They can designate where their giving goes (Tithe, Public Offering, Benevolence, Church School, etc.) and the frequency in which they give. Online giving is secure and tax deductible.

Proverbs 3:9 "Honor the LORD with your wealth, with the first fruits of all your crops…" Jesus taught that our money is an indicator of our hearts and Paul taught that if we are loved by God and love Him in return we would give cheerfully, sacrificially, and regularly. The Bible teaches that God is the Owner of everything, including our money and possessions. When we give, we give back to God what He already owns. Our giving is an indication of trust, discipleship, and commitment. We believe that the minimum Biblical standard for giving is 10%, commonly called a “tithe.” How does my giving support the church? Historic Mt. Zion AME Church prepares and adopts an annual budget. This budget is carefully prepared with detailed planning spanning many months. The budget is an operating tool that guides our church in ministry, missions, and operations. It is important that every member and attendee understand their God-given role in supporting the financial needs of the church through systematic giving (tithing) to the church. What is the advantage of Online Giving? It saves time! It saves work! It simplifies your life! You can avoid the hassle of writing and remembering checks! It can also help your consistency and faithfulness in giving.

Yes. The church will continue to send year-end contribution statements to your address on file for tax purposes. Upon request.
