GIVING



Thank you for supporting the ministries of South Beach Church!


WHAT IS BIBLICAL GIVING?


God influences the world through his people. He gives to us so He can give through us.

The Bible tells us that everything we have is a gift from God. In 1 Chronicles 29:14,

David proclaims, “For all things come from You, and of Your own we have given You.”

We merely give to God out of what He has given to us!


As we give both faithfully and willingly, the world is changed for the glory of God: the

gospel is preached, lives are touched, people are fed, bodies are healed, churches are

built; and we, in turn, are blessed by God so that we can give again.


WAYS TO GIVE


All donations to South Beach Church are tax-deductible, and will be used to further what

God is doing through our ministry locally and around the world.


There are 3 practical ways that you can tithe or give to South Beach Church.


1) ONLINE: Donate through our online giving app by clicking on the green button

in the bottom left of this page.

(We’re changing our online app. Please see below for more info.)


2) AT CHURCH: To give by check or cash at church, simply drop your offering in

one of the Offering Boxes. Tithe envelopes are also available. We do not pass

offering bags during the service.


3) SNAIL MAIL: You can also mail personal checks or Bill Pay checks set up

through your bank to South Beach Church, P.O. Box 950, Newport, OR, 97365.


Our online donation app is changing and here’s why.


At the end of 2018, we took a hard look at the cost of using an online app and realized

how much it costs to offer this service to our members and donors.


Online giving apps have been growing in popularity in the last several years largely

because of convenience. But many people don’t realize that there is a cost to providing

the service. It costs SBC thousands of dollars in donations each year to make this

option available. First, each service provider charges subscription fees and, in addition,

the providers of the fund processing will deduct typically 3% on each credit card

transaction and about 1.5% for each ACH transaction. For example, if you donate $100

with a debit or credit card, $97 goes to SBC and $3 goes to pay provider service fees.


So, now, we’ve found an online app with a different model called RebelGive. This app

has a much lower subscription fee, and the transaction percentages are lower. But the

key difference is when you make a donation, it automatically adds the percentage fee

which you would also donate, as well (you can always lower the donation if you don’t

want to pay the fee). This means that 100% of what you and I want to give to the church

actually goes to the church.


Reminder: If your bank offers a Bill Pay service, you can use that at no charge to you or

us. But it does use snail mail.

But, if you use the RebelGive online program, you can pay through your bank as an

ACH transaction and it’s only a flat fee of .25 cents per transaction. And there’s no

paper involved.


NOTE: If you currently have an account with the old PushPay program, it will still be

usable to make donations to SBC until June 1, 2019, but we ask that you make the

switch prior to that.
