We encourage our members to enroll in the free Joyful Response program. Offerings are given via direct debit from your checking account, and you choose the frequency and amount. The direct debit of the chosen bank account is set up on a recurring weekly, semi-monthly, or monthly schedule. This is especially useful in the current situation we find ourselves in, where members may be unable to attend but would still like to give to their church. It is also a nice program for members currently attending as they do not have to remember to bring cash or a check and there is no need to touch collection plates or offering boxes.
This option allows members to give offerings consistently, fulfill their stewardship commitments, and share their financial blessings efficiently and predictably. This program is a free stewardship service offered to LCMS congregations through LCEF (Lutheran Church Extension Fund). Getting started with Joyful Reponse is easy! Print and fill out the Joyful Response form located in the box below and drop it off at the church to get started.
