Why We Give
Generous donations and contributions allow the church to function the way it does today. Everything from the preachers salary to the air conditioning is paid for with these contributions. The church was able to build the barn and the arena out back due to the different contributions, whether it was money or materials, from everyone here at Lone Star Cowboy Church. We have also been able to help several families in need throughout the year thanks to your generous donations. It is only through these gifts that we can continue to serve God and build this church up to attract the lost un-churched cowboy.

Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.— 2 Corinthians 9:7

The Bible discusses tithing and giving in many other versus. Take a look at the following passages for more info on why we should tithe:
Leviticus 27:30, Proverbs 3:9-10, Malachi 3:6-10, Matthew 6:19-24 and I Corinthians 16:1-2.

Q&A
Q: What should I do if I forget my password?
Click “Forgot Password” and the system will email it to you.

Q: Is it safe to give online?
Yes. In many ways giving online is safer than writing a check because an electronic gift cannot be lost or stolen. The security of the system is continually managed by Easy Tithe.

Q: What types of bank accounts can I give from?
You can give online from your checking account via debit card transaction.

Q: Are there any fees involved with giving online?
Not to you. You will not pay any fees with an online gift. In addition, online gifts are a more cost-efficient way for the church to process donations.

Q: Can I make a one-time contribution?
Yes. The system allows you the option of either making a one-time contribution or setting up a recurring contribution. For a one-time contribution, you can designate that the contribution should be made immediately or, for both one-time and recurring contributions, you can schedule the contributions to come out of your bank account on the date(s) specified by you.

Q: If I want to set-up a recurring gift, what are my options for frequency of my gift?
For recurring gifts, you have the option of giving weekly, twice a month, or once a month.

Q: Can I change my personal information or the amount or the frequency of my gift once I have set it up?
Yes. You can change or cancel your contribution at any time before the date of your next contribution. Simply log in to the system using your user name and password and make the necessary changes in the system.

Q: Can I review my donation history online?
Yes. The site will allow you to view and print the complete history of your contributions that have been given online.

Q: Will I still receive regular contribution statements from the church?
Yes. The church will continue to send year-end contribution statements to your address on file for tax purposes.

Q: When will contributions be withdrawn from my account?
Contributions will be withdrawn from your specified bank account within 48 business hours of the date you request. This time frame allows for the contribution to process through your bank and the church’s bank. If the date of your contribution falls on a weekend or a holiday, the transaction will be initiated on the next banking day.

Q: Can I designate my gift to a particular cause?
Not at this time but we will continue to improve our system of giving

Q: How will I know that I set up my gift correctly?
Immediately after submitting your contribution, you will receive an e-mail verifying your contribution.

Q: Does it matter which Internet browser I use?
We recommend the latest versions of Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox, but most any browser will work.

Q. Can I use a debit card?
You can use a debit check card from Visa or MasterCard, but true debit cards requiring the use of a PIN are not accepted through the Easy Tithe system.

Q: I have additional questions about online giving that have not been addressed. Who can I talk to?
For any questions, concerns or comments about the online giving system, please contact one of our Segundos.
