A note from the Business Office 

2 Corinthians 9:6-8

Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.

 Recurring Gift Giving

Now that we are at the start of summer, many of us will be going somewhere for vacation.  At the church, we continue with our ministries but know that out attendance and gift giving will typically dip down some. But you know what? That doesn’t have to be the case. Recurring Gift Giving is an easy way that people can give year round without the worry that you have forgotten to write that check to the church. When people give consistently, it supplies the church with a steady, reliable flow of gifts that help us to confidently run our ministries and allow us to be God’s hands & feet in our community and world. There are several ways that you can sign up for recurring giving through our ACH program or our on-line giving; either way is safe and convenient, and you can pick how often you would like to give. If you have questions about recurring giving, please contact Jill in the Finance Office.

The following are ways that you can give your monetary gifts to our church:

  • On-line giving on our website, www.love-first.org
  • E-Offering (ACH) is a safe way to have your giving directly deducted from your checking or

        savings account – contact the Business Office for an authorization form.

  • Direct bill payment through your own bank
  • Mail in gifts to 163 E. Wheeling St., Lancaster, OH 43130

We are here to help! If you have any questions on any of the ways to give to our church please call Sarah or Jill in the Business Office at 740-653-3330.  Thank you for your generous gifts to our church.
