Online Giving

Scripture teaches that the management of God's assets, which He has entrusted to us, is a key aspect of the Christian's spiritual life. Our gifts and offerings to Him are truly acts of worship, so we encourage you to give as part of worship on Sunday mornings.

However, we also realize that it may be more convenient to give online or set up a recurring payment. Therefore, St. Stephen is pleased to offer online giving for your convenience. We make secure online giving available via Checking & Savings (ACH) direct bank account withdrawals through EasyDraft.com. CLICK HERE to go to our online giving page.

Online Giving FAQs

Does online giving “count”?

Yes, it absolutely counts. Those who prefer to give in the offering plate on Sunday morning may still continue to give that way. However, making an online gift is also an act of faithful discipleship. In fact, online giving can help us live into the Biblical idea of “first fruits.” Just like many of us manage our retirement or savings, online giving allows us to decide on a proportion or percentage of our income and to give to God FIRST.

Is it safe to give online?

Yes, it is very safe. EasyDraft, our online giving provider company is a PCI (Payment Card Industry) Compliant Service Provider. PCI requires EasyDraft to adhere to a rigorous set of security standards and undergo comprehensive onsite assessments by independent auditors on a regular basis.
