What Is Simply Giving?

Simply Giving is a free program offered by Thrivent Financial for Lutherans to help churches and other Lutheran organizations manage contributions more effectively. The program works by helping individuals better manage their contributions. Living Lord Lutheran Church is enrolled in this program, so those who sign up can support Living Lord in an easy, hassle-free way.

How Does Simply Giving Work?

Simply Giving is an electronic funds transfer (EFT) program in which your designated contribution to Living Lord Lutheran Church is automatically withdrawn from your bank account. It’s just like paying your electric bill through EFT. It’s free, and you determine how much and how often to give. Simply Giving automatically tracks your giving and reports this information monthly to the church, so your giving records will be accurate. It’s also easy to change your contribution amount and frequency of giving.

Why Should We Sign Up for Simply Giving?

Simply Giving is so easy! It’s one more way to simplify our lives. No more writing checks during the worship service or having to double-up on offerings when you miss a service. And if you still care to use your assigned offering envelopes, just write “Simply Giving” and the amount on the outside of your envelope and drop it in the offering plate as it passes by. A very important benefit of Simply Giving is that the program helps Living Lord manage cash flow effectively all year long, especially during times when worship attendance fluctuates because of vacations. Simply Giving is free to Living Lord members and it costs the church nothing to participate.

Is Anyone Else at Living Lord Using Simply Giving?

Simply Giving is already in place at Living Lord and many families are participating in this no-hassle program.
