Giving At LCF


    Giving is a part of our worship! We believe giving cheerfully and sacrificially is an act of worship that blesses the giver as much as the receiver (2 Corinthians 9:6-7). We teach the giving of tithes (10% of one's first-fruits income) plus the giving of offerings (monies given over and above one's tithe). This generosity is never treated lightly, for there is an element of sacrifice in our giving. Therefore, we manage these gifts with appropriate respect, thanksgiving, and trustworthiness. 

    As Christians, this stewardship is a tremendous - and often overlooked - area of our lives where we can faithfully proclaim the gospel. Giving strengthens our devotion to Christ and frees us to live gratefully with the gifts God gives us. We trust in Him and His provisions instead of our perceived self-sufficiency. As people of faith, we give faithfully and generously.

    We are thankful for your gifts to the Lord through LCF. Your tithe and offerings help further the impact of the ministries at LCF. Your generosity is changing lives!


    Online Giving


    We are pleased to offer you the option of giving your tithes and offerings online through our LCF website and mobile app. Our hope is that it can serve multiple purposes including simplifying weekly giving in a way that will help us be a better steward of your gifts.

    Online giving will enable you to present your tithes and many of your tax-deductible offerings (various mission endeavors, children's addition, benevolence, etc.) using electronic funds transfer (EFT) directly from your checking account or through debit/credit cards.

    Our service provider uses industry-standard encryption trusted for online commerce with world-class financial organizations. It is a very safe and secure process.


    Giving Options at LCF


    EFT (electronic funds transfer)

    • EFT (electronic funds transfer) – a preferred method:  Sign up on LCF’s website to have money withdrawn directly from your bank account. You can set up your donation on a repetitive basis, or you can adjust the amount you give each time. This method has an extremely small fee attached to it.  LCF pays; it’s free to you.

    Bill Pay Service

    • Your bank’s online bill payment service – a preferred method:  Quite a few of you already give to LCF through your own bank’s online bill payment service.  If that is working for you, please continue to do that as this method is free for all parties.

    Credit/Debit Card

    • Credit/Debit Card:  We realize that there are differing views regarding the use of credit cards for charitable giving.  We offer this option for those who have indicated that they use their credit/debit cards for most of their purchases in order to facilitate easier financial management.  We encourage the use of credit card giving only to those who do not struggle with debt and who pay off their balance each month.  This online method (credit or debit) has a 2.65% fee attached to it. Again, LCF pays and it’s free to you.


    • Check/Cash – a preferred method: We also continue to welcome the old tried-and-true method!  The tithe and offering boxes will remain available at LCF for you to use when donating through personal check or cash.

    Our preferred methods are options that have negligible processing expense for the church, more of your gift impacts ministry.
