First Fruits: In Proverbs 3:9 we are taught to honor the Lord with the “First Fruits” of our labor. By setting up a recurring contribution that is scheduled to come out of your account on the day you specify you can ensure that your First Fruits are given back to God.
Simplicity: You will not need to remember if you gave this month or send in your offering checks when you are out of town.
Security: Online giving is more secure than giving with a check in that an electronic gift can't be lost or stolen. A giving statement will be sent to you at year-end for your personal tax purposes.
