Electronic Giving

Through our partnership with Vanco Payment Solutions, First Lutheran Church is able to offer our members easy, safe and secure electronic payments using one of the options below.  You can make one-time donations OR set up recurring donations!

Online Giving

1. Access the First Lutheran Payment Portal HERE

2. Here enter the amount, select frequency and date, then click “Continue.

3. At the next screen, input your contact and payment info (bank account or credit/debit card). Click “Process” to confirm and complete!

Establishing a personal profile with  your login/password allows you to manage your personal information and update donations, frequency, and payment methods. You also can view your complete online giving history!

Mobile App Giving

1. Download the “GivePlus Church” app from the App Store or Google Play.

2. Open the “GivePlus Church” app and search for First Ev. Lutheran Church (you can type the name or tap Find Churches Near Me to start your search. Select First Ev. Lutheran. After the first time, your selected church will display as the default.)

3. Tap “Donate Now.”

4. Choose a fund and a pre-set amount or enter another amount. You can donate one-time or set a recurring schedule. You can also give to multiple funds by selecting “Add.”

5. Scan or enter your payment info (bank account or credit/debit card). Review the summary and then select “Complete Donation.”

Please Note – The first time you utilize, you’ll create a personal account with an email address and password.

Establishing this allows you to manage your personal information and add/update donations, frequency, and payment methods. You will be able to view your complete online giving history (takes about 24 hours for donations to process).

Giving Via Text

1. Text the amount of your contribution to 855-976-6919 (this # is assigned to First Ev. Lutheran).

2. The first time you text, you will receive a registration link. Click to enter your contact and payment information (credit/debit card only, no bank accounts). Tap “Process.”

3. After registration is complete, you will receive an immediate verification text as well as a receipt email.

Special texting codes will be established for particular fund appeals (i.e. Angel Seeds). Donors can text “Repeat” to make a previous donation repeat or text “Schedule” to set up a recurring donation. Contact the church office for info on other keyword codes to manage text giving. Giving History is not currently available with Text Giving; however, you will receive email receipt of donation and will always be included in your offering history from the Church Office.

"You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God."
