Love and Unity invites you to consider our new electronic giving program as an easy alternative for your regular giving. Electronic giving offers convenience for you and helps the ministries of the church by providing more consistent giving. We anticipate that electronic giving will appeal to many people - from long time worshippers who will appreciate an alternative to frequent check writing to younger members and one-time givers who prefer to give by electronic means whenever possible. We offer 4 different ways to take advantage of electronic giving for you to give and be a blessing.
- Direct Debit Giving is used to automatically transfer funds from your checking or savings account to the church's bank account. If you are already using direct debit to make mortgage and car payments or to pay utility bills, then you know how it works.
- This type of giving, lets you make offerings automatically on a predetermined schedule using a credit or debit card. Today, millions of families use debit cards as a convenient alternative to checks to manage a wide variety of obligations.
3. GIVE VIA LOVE AND UNITY MEMBERSHIP/MOBILE APP
- This option gives to the best of all worlds. We know our younger givers will get a kick out of this option. But some of our older givers we know, if you give it a try, will notice the quick and easy convenience of this option. Not only will you be able to give via, checking, savings account, debit and or credit cards. You can also set up recurring financial gifts to the ministry. Check-In your kids for kids church, Check-in as a leader of Love and Unity, request to join a ministry and even upload your picture. You can also check your giving history has well. Isn't that amazing? All you have to do is:

4. GIVE VIA TEXT-TO-GIVE
This option is fun and and also great way to Quick Give. You just text the amount you want to give to 310-507-1181 or just text help to our Text-To-Give phone number. You will then receive a reply to set up an account. Once that account is set up, your donation will be made and after that moment, whenever you would like to give, you just place in the amount, where you want that money to go and hit send. For example. You want to give $10 to Pastor Hill or $25 to Offering. You just text 310-507-1181 and place in $10 Pastoral Gift or $25 Offering. And it's done!! Be sure to save our Text-To-Give number to your contacts to make the process even faster. See at the bottom of this page for more shortcuts for Text-To-Give.
We do apologize but we no longer offer PayPal. It was becoming very expensive and we want to be good stewards of God's money.
*Our staff will be offering a How-To-Session in June 2017 to assist anyone during this transition. Look out in the bulletin for dates and locations.
