Giving Made Simple
Q: What is Simply Giving? Simply Giving is a convenient and easy way for you to make a tax-deductible contribution our church. Within 5 minutes from the comfort of your own home you can make either a one-time donation or set up a re-occuring gift. You have control! You can easily make adjustments and it's completely safe and secure.
Q: Does the church benefit when I give this way? Yes! Your online gifts help us to budget throughout the year and better help others. Plus, it saves us money and helps the environment by avoiding paper envelopes. In addition, each Simply Giving donation helps Thrivent for Lutherans, which in turns helps Lutheran congregations help others. Currently 33% of our congregation members give this way. Our goal is 50% participation.

Why We Use Simply Giving
by Brad & Julie Wegmann
“When we first joined First Lutheran we were interested in the Simply Giving Program because of the convenience it provided to us. Also the comfort of knowing if we weren’t able to make church for a particular weekend because of travel or busy schedule, we know our giving to the church we know that our giving to the church, our commitment to the church was still there.” – Brad
“It’s reassuring to know that we’re giving every week without having to worry about bringing an envelope. ‘Did you get it? Did you write the check?’ It’s nice to know that it’s there.” –Julie
“That’s how we live the rest our lives, we do online bills, you pay electronically elsewhere, so we had all the confidence that the Simply Giving Program was going to be just as secure as the other programs. We’ve been doing it now for 18 months and we’ve never had any issues.” –Brad
“We feel that being a part of a Christian Family is to give back to the (church) family that we’re a part of. And the great thing we love about First Lutheran, there are so many programs that First Lutheran is involved in, we know that the money we are donating to First Lutheran is going to very worthy causes. So we try to commit as much as we can to the church because we know it’s going to all the right places.” -Brad
