In addition, you can Give by check or cash at our campus during our service or handing in at the information desk.

How is my donation used?
Your giving to the General Ministry Fund supports our ministry programming (kids, youth, worship, etc), outreach, benevolence and care, state and national ministry partners, pastoral and support staff, facilities and operations. 

How secure is my online giving? 
Online giving uses the most powerful security tools in existence. All bank account information is stored as encrypted data. The system uses the same processing networks used by federal banking and government agencies. In fact, fewer people see your sensitive information with electronic gifts than with paper checks or mailed donations—making online the MORE secure choice.  

What payment method options can I choose from?
Avenue Church’s online giving is configured to accept direct payments from checking or savings accounts. 

How do I know when my gift has processed, and for how much? 
You’ll receive an email receipt for your records that reflects the date and amount processed. You will also receive notification if your transaction fails for any reason. 

Will I still receive an annual paper statement of my giving? 
Yes. You will receive an annual giving statement from Avenue Church. 

What if I set up recurring Electronic Giving and want to stop it or change it? 
Simply contact your bank prior to your next donation date. This will ensure your automated online giving will be cancelled or changed to the amount you want. 

What prevents the church from charging me whenever it wants? 
Federal law (Federal Regulation E) protects you from unauthorized debits from your checking account. With online giving, you have the right to stop, reverse, or dispute any debits you believe were made in error. 

How common is Online Giving? 
Online giving, like electronic payments, is very common. More than half of all U.S. households use electronic payments to pay their mortgage, loans, insurance premiums, utilities, membership dues, and other bills. (Statistic from
