In addition to giving of our time, Ingomar Church also pursues giving extravagantly financially.
God loves a cheerful giver. Contributors to Ingomar Church give what we feel called by God to give. Many at Ingomar Church are tithing (10% of income) and some give beyond tithing. Many are working step-by-step towards tithing. It’s common to hear people express that the more they give the more joy they feel. As we take that leap of faith and give more and more extravagantly, God’s blessings increase even more. Join us in giving extravagantly and experience the blessings that follow.
Note that in addition to normal offering collection during worship, Ingomar Church also offers Online Giving. Through Online Giving, you can configure your giving and have monies periodically withdrawn and donated. Or you may also use Online Giving for one-time special donations to Ingomar Church.
We also have two additional options to give electronically for those who prefer giving from a smart phone using an App or by sending a text gift. Text gifts can only be charged to debit/credit cards, but by using the “Give+” phone app, you can use debit/credit cards or a bank account.
Give+ Phone App
The Give+ Vanco App can be downloaded from the Android Play Store or the Apple store. Once downloaded, you can select Ingomar Church and create an account by entering your email address, a password, and a payment method (checking/savings account or debit/credit card). You will need to retrieve an email notice from Vanco to complete your account set up. You can also choose to logon in the future by entering a PIN, fingerprint recognition, or your password. To avoid having to re-enter your payment method in the future, be sure to create and save your account before making a donation.
For text giving, you do not need to download an App. Simply text an amount (preceded by a dollar sign) to 412-504-7798 followed by a code to designate where you want the funds directed. For example $100 op17.
Some of the current valid codes are:
- op17 – Operating Income for 2017
- mort – Mortgage Principal reduction
- missions – General undesignated missions outreach
- beth – Bethany House
The first time you text a gift to 412-504-7798 you will be directed to a registration screen where you will put in your contact information and debit/credit card information (Note: you will not be able to use checking or savings accounts to give via text). You can set up text gifts as one-time or recurring.
Other texting keywords – You can also text the following keywords to 412-504-7798
- Edit or #Edit – if you want to edit your contact information, payment method or email
- Halt or #Halt – to PERMANENTLY disable text giving from your phone
- Funds or #Funds – to get a list of all available funds
Extravagant Generosity is one of 5 key areas we at Ingomar Church are intentionally developing in order to become more like Christ both individually as well as one church. For more information, see Our Mission.
