WHY WE GIVE
We believe regular giving is not simply about charity, it’s an act of worship that is joyful, faith-filled consistent, and sacrificial. By giving back from the gifts and resources God has given us, we gain the privilege of partnering with Him to unleash His grace and compassion to a hurting world. Your gift, no matter how big or how small, is significant.

QUESTIONS ABOUT GIVING
Why give online? Recurring giving from a checking account is the best stewardship of God's resources because it eliminates credit card processing fees and minimizes administrative processing. Our online giving system enables you to connect directly and securely to your financial institution
When I give to Mariners Church South County, where does the money go? Great question! Simply put, your giving helps support the mission of Mariners South County. Every dollar fuels the resourcing of gospel-centered ministries at the church and beyond. In addition, operating expenses (like property expenses, utilities, staff, kids curriculum, fun events for families, and yes, even the coffee bar) are funded by the generosity of people like you.
Is giving online secure and private? Absolutely. All information and transaction data is protected through secure processing services, and your information is encrypted when transmitted. The online giving form requires contact information like name, email address, and some demographic information. Mariners Church will not sell or rent your personal information to third parties. This information is stored in your file in a secure environment separate from our website.
What is the benefit of automatic online donations? Regular online giving is the lifeblood of nonprofit organizations like the church. Plus it's convenient, secure, and helps prioritize the practice of giving back to God. With a regular donation, you can choose the frequency of your gift and when to start the first donation. Many people set their automatic donation to occur on every payday, whether weekly, every two weeks, or twice per month.
Why is verification needed to give through my bank? Because we take security seriously. There are two ways to verify:
- Direct log-in to your financial institution using the online credentials you typically use to sign-in to your bank (this feature is available for 13 major U.S. banks and financial institutions).
- Micro-deposit account verification.
