At Epiphany, we realize that everything we have as a congregation and individually comes from God. The financial support of giving is an opportunity for us to grow in stewardship and discover the joy of giving in response to all the blessings we have received. It is also necessary for us to contribute our Time, Treasure, and Talents to live our vision and do God’s work Here, There, & Everywhere. In Proverbs 3:9-10 God tells His people to “honor the Lord with your wealth, with the first fruits of all your crops and then your barns will be filled with overflowing.” God promises that a full measure of blessings will be ours when we joyfully give Him our “First Fruits.”
Of course we’d like to see you worshiping with us Sunday mornings where the Offering Plate is passed, but we also offer a safe and convenient alternative.The Simply Giving® Program is an automated stewardship program that helps members live generously. It’s a simple way for individuals to make automatic payments to Epiphany through electronic funds transfer (EFT) directly from checking or savings accounts. Thrivent Federal Credit Union has contracted with industry leader Vanco Payment Solutions to provide electronic payment processing services at reduced rates — so your generosity goes further. We are constantly looking for more safe and easy ways for you to honor your personal commitment to God and we will present them on the website as they become available.
You can text your offering by simply sending a message to (850) 753-2128 with the amount you would like to contribute (example: 25). Within a few minutes you will be sent a text with a link to register. Click on the link and enter your cardholder name and debit or credit card information. Once your registration is complete, you will receive a text verification, and a receipt of your donation via email. For future giving, send a text with the amount you wish to give, and it will process automatically. You can even text "repeat" to make it a recurring donation.
Download the app from the App Store or Google Play (search for "give plus church"). When you open the app, put in the name of our church, the zip code, or allow the app to use location services. Once you have chosen the church, you can donate as a guest or set up an account.
Whatever the Lord puts on your heart, thank you so much for giving! We know that advancing the Gospel and serving God’s people requires faithful investment of all our resources, including our money. Every day, with God’s help your contributions are being used to make lifelong, committed followers of Jesus Here, There, & Everywhere.
Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 2 Corinthians 9:6-7
