Giving Opportunities

We give with grateful hearts, striving to be faithful stewards, recognizing that everything belongs to God. We try to help you conveniently, consistently, and joyfully give financial gifts to St. Timothy.

Here are some options.

Cash/ Check

During worship services we provide an opportunity to give when we pass the offering plate.  This is often the easiest way to give through cash/check.

Online Banking

If you prefer not to write checks, many banks offer options to create a new payee with online banking.

Online Giving

Online Giving is a convenient way to give and make donations whether you would like to make a one time donation or make a regular reoccurring offering.

One way to make a regular reoccurring offering to St. Timothy is to sign up for our Simply Giving Program. Simply Giving is a convenient way to make your regular offerings. With this electronic giving program, you can easily set up a recurring giving schedule or make one-time contributions. For an online gift to go to a designated fund, simply check the fund identified or write in the Other field provided. We encourage you to set up a schedule of recurring contributions. It’s convenient and provides much-needed consistency for our church. If you are currently giving on a weekly basis, you will no longer need to write out 52 checks a year or prepare 52 envelopes. Even when traveling, illness or other circumstances prevent you from attending services, we will continue to receive your contributions on an uninterrupted basis. If you would like more information about Simply Giving, please contact our Financial Secretary at

We also offer the ability to use popular and secure electronic third party services such as PayPal and Vanco Services.  Please choose the app that you feel most comfortable with.  Again all options to give are secure.
