Online Giving at Uptown Church

At Uptown’s 2019 Vision Banquet, in January, we announced that our church was going to be opening up online giving in the next few months. We now have everything set up so that those who are interested can participate.

There are three ways you can participate in online giving:

  1. Website: Go to https://uptownchurchclt.churchcenter.com/giving
  2. Text to give: Text an amount ($25, etc.) to ‘84321’. You will then be given a link to our online giving page.  Select ‘Uptown Church’, and continue to set up your account and giving information.  This will be stored for future gifts as well.
  3. App: Go to the App Store (iOS and Android) and download the ‘Church Center’ app.  You will need to select ‘Uptown Church.’ Select ‘Give’ and follow the instructions.

Helpful information for you to know and consider:

  • Each of the three options above can be used for either one time or recurring gifts.
  • With all of these means, you will need to connect either your bank account or a credit/debit card, each of which has fees associated with it:
    • Donations through ACH/Bank Account have a flat fee of $0.25 per donation/transaction
    • Donations through Credit/Debit cards have a fee of 2.3% of the amount given plus an additional $0.30.
    • These fees will be taken out of the amount given, not charged in addition to the gift.
  • If you are going to utilize on-line giving we ask that you set this up before you arrive on Sunday so that you will not be distracted in worship.
  • You will be asked to include your email address and/or cell number in the basic set-up process, in addition to your payment information. This is required so that your donations will be recorded and giving statements generated.

Finally, for those who are giving online, we encourage you to participate in the collecting of tithes and offerings section of the worship service by placing a giving token in the collection plate which will connect your gift to the corporate worship service. These small wooden tokens, which have been specially designed for our church, will be available in both the narthex as you enter the main entrance to the sanctuary and in the front of the sanctuary by the side doors so that you can get one as you come in to worship.

While many will continue to participate in giving in the ways that have been available since the church was established, it is our hope that this will be another opportunity enabling our people to give joyfully, honor the Lord, and bless our church and the kingdom of God.

Thank you for your generous support of Uptown Church.

Rev. Dr. Tom Hawkes
