Online Giving

Redeemer Lutheran Church utilizes Vanco Payment Solutions services for online giving. Online Giving allows you to make one-time donations or to set up a schedule of automatic donations. By setting up a password-protected profile, you will be able to log in at any time to make donations, change a recurring donation plan or view your personal giving history. Online giving also allows you to register for church events, make payments to Redeemer Early Learning Center, or make donations in memory or honor of a loved one. Online giving is provided for your convenience as a way to facilitate faithful stewardship of the financial resources with which God has blessed you. Please note, however, that Redeemer Lutheran Church does not condone the creation of personal debt as a means to faithful giving. Please use credit cards responsibly.

 

Redeemer’s online giving is secure. According to Vanco Payment Solutions, “[We] operate with an unwavering commitment to security and confidentiality and incorporate risk management into every facet of [our] business. As a PCI Level 1 Compliant Service Provider, [we] provide the highest level of security and confidentiality. [We] utilize the latest technologies, undergo extensive audits and incorporate risk management into every facet of [our] business.” The definition of PCI Level 1 compliance means that over 6 million Visa and/or MasterCard transactions are processed per year. For example, Vanco Payment Solutions adheres to the same security requirements as Amazon.

 

As you contemplate your future contributions, please consider electronic giving.

Thrivent Choice has distributed nearly $225 million to churches and nationwide nonprofit organizations since 2010. Each year, eligible Thrivent members designate Choice Dollars® based on their qualifying insurance premiums, contract values and volunteer leadership.

 

Choice Dollars® are funds intended to advance the missional impact of Christian organizations. Between 2010 and 2015, Redeemer received over $65,000!
