The ministries of EFCC are funded by God’s provision through the tithes and offerings of faithful EFCC members and attenders. Because of your generous and consistent giving, we are able to do all that we do at EFCC.
The Bible teaches, “The purpose of tithing is to teach you to always to put God first in your lives,” (Deuteronomy 14:23). Tithing is a reminder that God is the supplier of everything we have. It is also God’s personal invitation to an outpouring of His blessing in your life.
The baseline standard for giving in Scripture is “the tithe,” which is derived from the Hebrew word Ma’aser and it literally means “a tenth.” Ten percent of everything belongs to the Lord. When we give the first 10% of our income to the church, we put God first in our lives. Tithing is an act of worship that expresses our gratitude, faith, and love for others.
At EFCC we honor God’s provision through your giving by exercising wise and faithful stewardship, ethical business practices and full accountability so that the financial integrity of EFCC remains beyond reproach.

Getting Started with Online – with e-checks or debit or credit card
At EFCC the best way to give is by automating your giving:
Faithfully Honoring God – When you sign up to give online or through automated bank debit you are deciding in advance to faithfully give. God always blesses that kind of faith! The Bible teaches that we are to honor God with the “First Fruits” of our labor (Proverbs 3:9). By setting up a recurring contribution that is scheduled to come out of your account on the day you specify, you can ensure that your “First Fruits” are faithfully given back to God.
Simplicity – You won’t have to remember whether you gave this month or send in an offering by mail when you’re on a trip. Plus, you can easily track and adjust your giving at any time by logging into your Fellowship One portal that you set up the first time you give.
Security – We utilize an encrypted secure website for your online records. Online or band debit-giving is more secure than giving with a check or cash because an electronic gift can’t be lost or stolen.
Focus – Instead of having to worry about writing a check and filling out an envelope during the service, you can be fully focused on the worship service, knowing that you have already given your offering.
Helping EFCC – Online giving is more cost effective for our church to process and it makes our record keeping much easier.
Your tithes and gifts make a REAL difference at EFCC and are vital to the everyday ministry of our church. We ask that you would prayerfully consider how God is leading you to give.
