We are currently switching merchant providers. The two donation platforms will overlap until 11/30/20. If you are a regular online giver, you will be receiving information regarding the switch from Vanco to Planning Center.
Your gift is an offering to the Lord, motivated by Christian love and given from a heart that is thankful for God's blessing of grace, forgiveness, care, and protection. Christian giving is an act of worship, praise, and thanks. It is a sacrifice of gratitude to God.
Emmanuel partners with Planning Center and Stripe to be able to process online contributions and payments. No financial information is stored on Emmanuel or Planning Center servers but is directly handled by Stripe. This means that your financial data is safe and secure for you and the church.
There are three ways to give:
- The link above on our website
- Church Center mobile app
- Text-to-Give (general offerings only) - Text 84321 and follow the prompts to set it up.

Cost to Give Online
Emmanuel incurs a fee to be able to process online gifts and payments. To keep costs as low as possible, you may wish to contribute by using a direct withdrawal from your bank account. This costs the church $.25 per transaction. Please be aware that if you use a credit card, a 2.15% fee of your total offering plus $.30 per transaction will go toward the credit card company. Before you complete your payment, you are given the option to cover any processing costs if you choose to do so.
Tax Deductible Gifts
Per IRS Regulations, no goods or services are provided in exchange for contributions other than intangible religious benefits. An annual statement will be mailed to you as proof of your tax-deductible charitable contributions. Our tax ID is 86-0268546. Thank you again for your generous commitment to the work of Jesus Christ through our church and school.
