Why Do We Give?

Our giving connects the work of the gospel in us to the work of the gospel outside of us.

God has blessed His people in Jesus Christ in order for them to be a blessing. So we desire to be faithful to God’s calling and trust that we have been “enriched in every way to be generous in every way, which through us will produce thanksgiving to God.” (2 Corinthians 9:11 ESV).

How Can We Give?

Other than in-person giving, or sending a check in the mail, there are two main online giving options to choose from:

Online Bill Pay

This is a feature you can set up with your bank. A check is mailed to the church directly from your financial institution.  This can be set up as a recurring donation or scheduled each month at your convenience.

PayPal

Use the “Give Online” button below.  This is a secure, online donation process that uses your debit (recommended) or credit card.  If you have a PayPal account you can simply send money directly to the church’s account (giving@glcjoliet.org) so fees are not incurred.




If you have any questions regarding online giving through PayPal, read our Online Giving FAQ.
