As we make adjustments for what may be an extended period of “social distancing,” we want to thank you for your continued faithfulness – faithfulness to one another (in small groups), faithfulness to the Word, and faithfulness in giving. As you well know, Big Woods operates on the faithful financial generosity of its members. Obviously, during this time, we will not be able to take a regular offering. We want to make you aware of how you can continue to give until we are able to return to normalcy.
1. If you prefer to give by check, make your gifts out to Big Woods Bible Church and mail them to the church office at Big Woods Bible Church, 241 S Hanna St Lock Haven, PA 17745. Please be sure to include any designations on the memo line or include a note with your gift to let us know how you would like to designate it.
2. Most banks offer a free e-check service. You can use that service from your bank’s website to send your offering to Big Woods. If you want to give to separate designations, you’ll need to send a separate e-check for each gift (e.g. one for missions, one for general offering, one for building fund, etc.)
3. You can also use our e-giving service at our website, bigwoods.org. Click here to go directly to that website. If you have not set up a profile, look to the right for the “Create Profile” button, click that button, and follow the steps to set up an online profile. Once you do that, you can log in using your unique user name and password. Once you log in, select “Add Transaction” then use the menu below to select how you would like to designate your gift. Once you have completed that step, at the bottom of the page, look for the drop down menu that says “Donation Frequency.” Click the arrow and select either “One Time Gift” or you can choose to set this up as an ongoing recurring gift that will automatically be charged to your card or withdrawn from your linked account. Once you have made your selection, click the “Continue” button. On the next page, select the account or card you would like to have charged, and fill in the appropriate information. There is also the ability to check off a box that will help you offset any processing fees. If you can do this, it will help maximize your gift, otherwise the church will have to cover the processing company’s fees. Check off the box that says “I Am Not A Robot” and then click “Process.”
Thank you again for your faithfulness! Rest assured we are working diligently to use the resources God has provided in a faithful way in this season. God bless you, and thank you for the opportunity to serve alongside you in His Kingdom work.
