Giving

Goodness is God’s heart towards us. Gratitude is our response to Him. The fruit of gratitude is a life of generosity. At Soul City Church, we believe that while we may not have all that we want, we do have more than we need, and giving is our joyful response to all that God has provided. This is a crucial aspect of our transformational journey with Jesus and a key component in living a life that is bigger than just us.

Non-Cash Giving

Non-Cash Giving

Did you know you can donate non-Cash gifts like stocks, bonds, mutual funds, or cars? There are many ways to give non-cash gifts.

  • Marketable Securities: Transfer ownership of your stocks, bonds, or mutual fund shares.
  • Other Non-Cash Gifts: Donate items like cars, boats, and jewelry.
  • Planned Gifts: Give via retirement assets, bequests, trusts, etc. as part of your overall personal financial strategy.
  • To make a non-cash gift or ask a question about this method of giving, please email giving@soulcitychurch.com.
  • What’s the difference between giving to the General Fund and giving to For The Love? And where should I start?

    Soul City’s General Fund is what fuels everything you’ve come to know and love about Soul City Church from Sunday Gatherings to Soul City Kids & Students to Small Groups to our Love Works community partnerships. Also, this fund is what keeps the place running by covering our operational expenses and infrastructure. It’s how we pay the bills. A strong General Fund allows us to actively pursue our mission of leading more people into a transforming relationship with Jesus, and this is where we encourage people to start their giving to Soul City.We establish our For The Love fund because at Soul City Church we are For The Love of God being extended to any and every person, but our current space is limiting how many people can experience the transformational work God is doing in and through this church. We believe that God has clearly invited us to join him in a Faith-Raising Movement as we extend our building east by building a new Transformation Ministry Center, and we are excited to invite you to join us on this journey of generosity by prayerfully considering how you can give over and above your regular offering to help make more room for more people to experience transformation!

    Who Should Give Online?

    Anyone who is looking for a simpler way to give to the ministry of Soul City Church. You can give as a one-time gift or set up a recurring gift.

    Is Online Giving Secure?

    Yes, it is! Pushpay is Level 1 PCI DSS compliant, which also happens to be the same certification your bank has. This means Pushpay is considered significantly more secure than many current payment methods, including actually having a credit card physically present.

    Can I Set Up Recurring Payments?

    Yes, you can! From the Pushpay App or the online Giving page choose the recurring payments option, and then follow the instructions to set up your recurring gift.

    Should My Gift Come from a Credit Card or Directly from my Bank Account (ACH)?

    We prefer you give from your bank account (ACH) rather than using a credit card. If you choose to give with a credit card, please keep in mind that roughly 3% of your gift will go to the credit card company for processing fees. With ACH transfers from your bank, Soul City receives 100% of your gift.

    When are Gifts Processed?

    You are able to choose the date your gifts are to be processed when you set up your gift online.

    How can I get a Receipt of my Online Gift?

    Please click on the Giving Statements tab to learn how to access your giving statement online anytime. These giving statements will include any online or in-person giving associated with you.

    Can I View my Past Giving History Online?

    You may view your giving history online three business days after you have established your new account in our system. Going forward, you will be able to view your giving history at any time.

    What if I'm Not a Soul City Church Member, but I Want to Make a Donation? How Can I Get a Giving Statement for Tax Purposes?

    We are happy to receive your gift above and beyond your normal giving to your own home church. Giving online is a perfect way for you to give. All givers receive a contribution statement regardless of membership status, assuming we have all of their correct contact information.

    What if I Want to Cancel or Change my Online Giving?

    You may cancel or make changes to contributions before processing is complete. Once your contribution has processed, you cannot make any changes to it through your online giving account.

    Can I Still Give Online if I Don't Have a Smartphone?

    YES! You can always donate online with or without a smartphone by clicking here.
