Simply Giving

Simply Giving Authorization Form

A number of Lutheran Church of Our Redeemer members are giving electronically through a program called, “Simply Giving”.  It is safe, convenient and confidential. You decide the amount and the frequency of contributions. For more information contact Donna Hamre in the church office (886-2696).

Simply Giving is a simple way to make your regular church contributions.  The program is designed to help you conveniently, consistently and joyfully give financial gifts to LCOOR ministries.  The program helps the church because of consistent, predictable income.

Please prayerfully consider this giving opportunity.

Online Giving

Lutheran Church of Our Redeemer is excited to announce that you can now manage your giving online!  Giving online is easy and allows you to set up one-time giving or automatic recurring contributions and view your complete online giving history from anywhere you have access to the Internet.   We invite you to Go Green and use our secure, online giving page.

Simply follow these easy steps:

1. Click on this link to online giving page,

2. Click on the Create Profile button (this step will only need to be done once), then

3. Follow the onscreen instructions to create an online profile and to schedule your one-time or recurring contribution.

Credit Card Giving and Purchasing

The church council has been discussing this for several months, because of fewer people using cash and checks.  Council believes we need to find another way for people to contribute.

The church now uses an iPad, card swipe attachment and a program called Square, which enable you to, at the church office during the week or at the Welcome Center on Sundays, give offerings, pay pre-school tuition, purchase Scrip and  pay for various fund-raisers with credit card.

Please note: there is a 2.83 % fee for each transaction that is added to your credit card amount.  For example, if you choose to give $100 to the church using your credit card, your statement will show a $102.83 charge.

The online payment option for giving regular offerings using “Simply Giving” is still the best option because of the low cost and automatic withdrawal option.
