NEW ONLINE GIVING SYSTEM
NOW AVAILABLE

We are so thankful that you want to support God's ministry through donations. Beginning May 1st, we began the switch to a new system for online giving. We encourage you to begin using the new system, but the old system will be available below until June 30th. For more information on this change and to learn how maximize your donation, you can learn more below.

NEW SYSTEM

Our new giving system provides a more user-friendly interface and charges lower fees, allowing more of your donation to support your local ministry.

OLD SYSTEM

The old system will be available until the end of June for you to use and to allow you time to transfer any reoccurring donations over to the new system. If you need help with this, do not hesitate to contact us.

WHAT THIS MEANS FOR YOU

After careful analysis, we found that replacing our current giving system would provide greater user-friendliness and lower fees, allowing more of your gift to go straight to the cause! The new system, which is available now, takes advantage of Planning Center's Giving service.

If you give with cash or check, nothing will change for you, but if you give online, the layout of the giving page will look different, and any reoccurring donations will need to be moved from the old system to the new system.

Additionally, we recommend giving through ACH (routing and account numbers) rather than credit/debit cards because there are higher fees associated with these transactions. See the guide below to maximize your contributions.

STEP BY STEP GUIDE TO GIVING

  1. Click here to setup a payment method

  2. Enter your phone number that can receive texts or click "Use email instead" follow instructions until you are fully logged in.

  3. Click "Add Payment Method"

  4. Select a payment method. We recommend the "US Bank Account" method because it reduces the fees taken out of your donation, but there are a few extra steps for this method.

    • If you chose "Card", enter your details and go to step 4.

    • If you use a local bank, you can try searching for your bank's website, such as "www.texasbank.com", or "www.cnb-brownwood.com". If you use a nationwide bank, your bank should be available. If this works, great! move onto step 4.

    • If you were unable to find your bank or login, you can select "Enter bank details manually instead". This process may take a day or two, so keep a close eye on your email. When your receive an email from "no-reply@churchcenter.com", follow the instructions in the email.

  5. Your payment method is now added! You can now donate to FMC by clicking the link above in the "New System" box.

We hope this will be a smooth transition. However, if you have any issues, do not hesitate to contact us for support.
