But since you excel in everything—
in faith, in speech, in knowledge,
in complete earnestness
and in the love
we have kindled in you—
see that you also excel
in this grace of giving.
I would not give
one moment of heaven
for all the joy and riches
of the world,
even if it lasted
for thousands and
thousands of years.
There is no best way to give. Give the way that enables you to give consistently and with joy.
In Person | We would love for you to join us for worship and give your thank offering when the plate is passed. If you can’t make it on Sunday, you are welcome to drop off a donation at the church office between 7:00 AM and 5:00 PM during the week. To receive an end-of-year tax receipt, please be sure to always include your full name and address on your check or envelope.
Electronic Bill Pay | Many financial institutions offer this free automatic service. With this feature, you can authorize your bank or credit union to provide recurring payments to the recipients you indicate. This makes consistent giving easy and is convenient for you and Grace. Payee information should read: Grace Lutheran Church, 7000 Providence Road, Charlotte, NC 28226, (704) 365-6828.
By Mail | You can mail a check, made out to “Grace Lutheran Church”, to the church office at 7000 Providence Road, Charlotte, NC 28226. The donation will be deposited the Monday after it is received.
Online | Online giving is a simple and secure way to contribute. You may choose to give a one-time gift or establish a recurring gift. Grace can receive monetary gifts online by credit or debit card. Give Now
Planned Giving | Planned giving is a way to reduce or avoid estate and inheritance taxes and help ensure long-term charitable giving to Grace. There are many vehicles through which a planned gift can be made. Bequests, life insurance policies, individual retirement accounts (IRA’s), and charitable trusts are all popular methods. Donors are encouraged to consult their financial advisor when considering these types of gifts. You can also speak with the WELS Planned Giving Counselor who serves Grace — Rev. John Kenyon (414) 405-9226 or John.Kenyon@wels.net.
Matching Gifts | Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. If your company has a matching gift program, request a matching gift form from your employer, and send it completed and signed with your gift. We will do the rest. The impact of your gift to Grace may be doubled!
