You can request to have your Tithes, Faith Promise, Building Fund, or other offerings transferred electronically from your checking or savings account to ICN on either a weekly or monthly basis. To get started, just print and complete the Electronic Charitable Giving Agreement (click here) and return it, along with the required information, in a sealed envelope to the Financial Administrator's mailbox. Copies of the form are also available in the brochure rack located in the Lobby near the main entrance.
If you are already banking online with your personal checking account, you can set up one time or recurring electronic payments through your account. You can use Immanuel Church of the Nazarene as the business name with our church address of 1260 Welsh Road, Lansdale, PA 19446. If an account number is needed, you can use your envelope number if you have been given one, or just create your own ID number.
Cash or checks written out to Immanuel Church of the Nazarene or ICN can be given using a yellow offering envelope available at the church near the office entrance and in the Worship Center by the entrances. If you would like to receive your own box of offering envelopes, please contact Amy Walker (email@example.com).
You can also support the ministries of ICN through capital gifts (stocks, bonds, property, etc.) and your estate planning. And, did you know that many companies offer “matching funds” for contributions to health and human services agencies, such as Kenya’s Kids and Nazarene Compassionate Ministries, and contributions to accredited colleges, such as Eastern Nazarene College.
Why We Tithe
Bring all the tithes into the storehouse so there will be enough food in my Temple. If you do,” says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, “I will open the windows of heaven for you. I will pour out a blessing so great you won’t have enough room to take it in! Try it! Put me to the test! Your crops will be abundant, for I will guard them from insects and disease. Your grapes will not fall from the vine before they are ripe,” says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. “Then all nations will call you blessed, for your land will be such a delight,” says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. –Malachi 3:10-12
A tithe–which means "tenth"–is defined as the first 10% of a person's income that is to be given back to the local church. Tithing is a principle that is taught throughout the entire Bible. When we tithe, we are expressing worship in a tangible way by putting God first in our lives.
Bringing our tithes is an opportunity for us to give God our thanks, show God we trust Him, and fight against the greed in the world and in our hearts... all the while allowing us to be a part of the most important work in life that is spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ!
