Why We Give
Creation belongs to God and we are simply managing His resources while here on earth. A Christian’s management of God’s resources is motivated by His unconditional love for us in Jesus Christ. Through our tithes and offerings, we demonstrate our love for God and our neighbors in a tangible way. We encourage our members to commit their tithes and offerings for the support of our ministry and mission.

We believe that giving to God’s work is an act of worship. As such, we do not specify how much an individual should give, but we hope each person will commit a percentage of their income and increase that amount as they are able.

Electronic giving

In addition to giving through the offering plate during worship services, we offer convenient ways for you to give electronically to regularly support the work of Bethlehem Lutheran Church.

Is My Giving Information Secure?

Absolutely. Any personal or financial information you enter is encrypted using SSL security–the same state-of-the-art security measures used by online retailers, banks,and other financial institutions.


We appreciate your consideration to include fees associated with your transaction, ensuring that 100% of your intended gift is available for the work of the Church.

Fees, like your offering, are tax-deductible since they are directed to Bethlehem Lutheran Church and not a third-party.

Do I need to Create an Account?

No. That said, we recommend you create an account so you can view your online giving history. Also, you will be asked to create an account if you’d like to setup recurring donations.

Will I Receive a Receipt When I Give Online?

Yes. You will be emailed a donation receipt each time you give. Again, we recommend creating an account so you can view all your online giving history.
