Give

At Big Valley Grace we give joyfully as part of our worship in response to all that Jesus has given us and to help more people meet Jesus. We offer online giving as a tool to assist you to be faithful and consistent in your giving in a way that is safe and convenient.

A word of guidance

We feel strongly about principles of stewardship and financial responsibility. Online giving does involve the use of credit and debit transactions as well as electronic funds transfer (EFT). Every giver should exercise care in using credit cards for giving. We offer this option only as a convenience and not as a way to circumvent sound biblical money management principles or to incur debt. If you have a balance on your credit card(s), we strongly encourage you not to use this method to send your contribution to us. Please use one of the direct debit options, or give through the offering at our weekly worship services.
