Online Giving

Online giving is now available through our church website and TouchPoint database!

While logged in to TouchPoint, you can give by accessing your profile. Click on the Giving Tab then the Contributions screen. You will see two buttons at the top; one for recurring giving and one for one time giving.

The “Manage Recurring Giving” button will allow you to schedule regular contributions on a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly basis.

The “one time” giving button will prompt you to enter a one time gift and designate it to the appropriate fund.

You can also give through our fbchenderson.org website.  Click Give from the main menu or scroll down to the giving section on the main web page.
